OHIO HOUSE BILL 197 EXTENDS THE GRACE PERIOD OF CONCEALED HANDGUN LICENSES FOR SOME LICENSE HOLDERS

Governor Michael DeWine has signed House Bill 197, which extends the expiration grace period of some concealed handgun licenses.

Licenses expiring before March 9th, 2020, have a 30 day grace period in which your concealed handgun license remains valid.

Licenses expiring between March 9th, 2020 and December 1st, 2020, have a 90 day grace period in which your concealed handgun license remains valid.

A concealed handgun license may be renewed at any time before or after it expires.


Ohio Concealed Handgun License holders & wearing a protective mask

From Dave Yost, Ohio Attorney General:

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office has been contacted by a number of Ohioans asking if it is legal for someone with a concealed-carry license to carry a concealed firearm while wearing a mask to curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Apparently misinformation is being spread through social media on this topic.

The correct answer is that in Ohio, concealed carry laws do not prohibit a citizen from carrying a concealed firearm while wearing a mask as long as that person also is carrying their concealed carry license and abiding by all Ohio concealed carry laws.
