In its final voting session of the year, the Ohio Senate moved to strip away a contested provision in Rep. Terry Johnson’s concealed carry handgun bill.

House Bill 495, which would change the definition of a loaded firearm in a vehicle, will no longer grant reciprocity for other states’ concealed carry licenses if it is signed into law.

Current law requires the Ohio attorney general to negotiate reciprocity agreements with other states if the other states have eligibility requirements similar to Ohio’s licensure requirements.
