OHIO CCW HOLDERS NO LONGER NEED BACKGROUND CHECKS TO BUY GUNS!

Recommended Posts

Valid Ohio Concealed Handgun License Holders No Longer Required to Submit to Additional Background Checks for Gun Purchases.

COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Attorney General Mike DeWine announced today that Ohioans who have a valid concealed handgun license have now had background checks sufficient to purchase firearms without the red tape of another background check.

 

 

 

The U.S. Department of Justice and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms have agreed to Attorney General DeWine’s request for an exemption to the mandatory National Instant Criminal Background Check provided the Ohio concealed handgun license was issued on or after March 23, 2015, and that the permit has not expired under state law or been revoked.

 

 

 

“I’m pleased Ohio concealed carry license holders will not have to undergo additional background checks each time they want to buy a firearm,” said Attorney General DeWine. “Ohio concealed carry license holders who are in good standing have already passed thorough state and federal background checks so there is no reason to force them to submit to additional checks if they want to buy a firearm.”

 

 

 

Attorney General DeWine was able to work with the ATF to obtain this exemption following changes made by the Ohio General Assembly in House Bill 234 that required the use of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) for all new and renewed concealed handgun licenses.

 

 

 

Ohio is the 25th state to receive a NICS exemption for its concealed handgun license holders.

Ive bought 3 guns since this law was passed at 3 different locations and had to do background checks at 2 of them , ultimately its up to the store to decide rather they want to honor the CCW which i think is stupid

I am hoping the CCW has national reciprocity soon. It would also be nice to buy weapons out of state, and not have to undergo the waiting time for background check from the BATF that can take up to three days.

The CCW information is retained by local sheriffs department only. There is no way for outside agencies to share that info without calling into the county sheriffs department. This is a good thing, as I feel a national list of CCW permit holders is a very bad idea.
