Ohio governor signs law allowing people to carry concealed weapons without a license

Starting in a few months, Ohioans will be able to carry concealed firearms in public without a license or training.

On Monday, Republican Gov. Mike DeWine signed into law the law Senate Bill 215which allows anyone over the age of 21 to have a concealed weapon on their person, unless federal or state law prohibits them from owning a firearm.

Previously, Ohio residents had to complete eight hours of training and obtain a license and background check to carry concealed weapons.

When the law takes effect in June, Ohio will become the 23rd U.S. state to allow concealed carry without a license.
