A proposal in Ohio would allow residents there to carry handguns not only with no training, but no permits.

Fox 8 reports the bill, introduced by Republican state Rep. Ron Hood, would dismantle the state’s current concealed carry regime, which includes background checks, training and permit fees.

Supporters claim the bill would affirm constitutional rights, while opponents claim taking away background checks and training requirements would pose a public safety risk.

That goes against what states like Maryland are doing. Since October 2013, anyone purchasing a handgun (concealed or not) must have completed a firearms safety course. Federally, President Barack Obama has urged Congress to mandate universal background checks for all firearms purchases.

  1. Governor Brownback recently signed legislation into law here in Kansas that gives anyone legally allowed to own a firearm the right to carry concealed without a permit. I think it’s a good idea. Now we need a law to block Federal Agents from entering the state for any reason without specific permission from the Governor.
