On March 14, 2022, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed SB 215, Ohio’s Constitutional Carry bill, into law.
This bill was first passed 58-36 in the State House and in the State Senate 24-9 on March 2.
Constitutional Carry is the idea that any lawful individual can carry a handgun openly or concealed without having to beg the government for a permit.
With this move, Ohio is now the 23rd state to embrace Constitutional Carry. AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News highlighted which other states have Constitutional Carry on the books:
The other 22 are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
Earlier this month, Alabama became the 22nd Constitutional Carry state.
2022 looks like another solid year for Constitutional Carry. Despite all the political tension in the US, the American Right has been able to find a niche area where it’s been effective in changing public policy.
Pro-Second Amendment organizations should be proud of themselves for being able to get on the scoreboard. Now, we must study the successes of Constitutional Carry and replicate the same strategies for other campaigns to roll back gun control laws.
The fight to restore Second Amendment freedom is just beginning.
