Thank you for your email regarding House Bills 45 and 54. H.B. 45 would allow concealed carry licensees, who are not under the influence, to possess a firearm in establishments that hold a liquor permit. H.B. 54 would modify the offense of improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle as it applies to concealed carry licensees. I understand and appreciate your interest in this issue.
I am a firm supporter of gun rights and will do everything I can to ensure that all Ohioans are afforded their Constitutional rights under the Second Amendment. At the moment, my concern with the bill is how law enforcement would be able to enforce the provisions ensuring that anyone with a firearm is not consuming alcohol. However, I will certainly keep your opinion in mind as the legislative process continues.
Thank you again for your input. Please feel free to contact my office in the future if there is anything I can do to help.
