A Statement from Ohioans For Concealed Carry on Ohio Senate Bill 239

When numerous news media outlets across the State of Ohio start covering the progress of concealed carry legislation in-depth in the final days of the legislative session you know that chances are you’re ruffling some feathers.

When headlines in the Toledo Blade accuse proponents of the bill of “using a ploy†(also known as a procedural rule of the House) and others regularly use catch phrases such as “mixing guns and alcohol†you know they’re working against your best interests.

Recently the news media and pundits have gone out of their way to misrepresent the truth behind Senate Bill 239, legislation that would allow a concealed handgun licensee to enter a restaurant or other liquour serving business.

When this bill was introduced it was stated “when you go to the next Indian's game someone will have a beer in one hand and a gun in the other handâ€, and recently this bill has been opposed with the phrase “mixing guns and bars,†which is effective but inaccurate propoganda.

Ohio House Speaker Armond Budish has made it very clear that he opposes the “restaurant carry†bill sponsored by Senators Schaffer and Jones. He's indicated that he will not convene another legislative session to allow Ohio’s lawmakers to vote on this bill â€" and he is the only person with the power to call for that vote before Dec. 31.
