Passage of Ohio House Bill 174 Opposed by Council

April 02, 2019

Ohio House Bill 174 was introduced on March 27, 2019 to propose the removal of nearly all regulations on firearms, permitting anyone not otherwise prohibited by Ohio or federal law to carry a concealed weapon without any training. In addition, the bill will no longer require motorists to notify a law enforcement officer of a concealed weapon during a stop. A resolution opposing the passage of Ohio House Bill 174, which would further erode restrictions on gun possession in Ohio and permit the carrying of concealed firearms without a permit, was passed by City Council on Monday, April 1, 2019.
