Ohio CCW

Sounds like Ohio’s CCW laws might change. It would allow military members to get CCW’s without having to go through the nonsense CCW classes. So long as they can show some eveidence of weapon proficiency. At least that’s how Cleveland Fox 8 presented it.

As it should be.

Handling a weapon post .mil isn't an issue for the most part.

The laws that will protect or prosecute them are another matter entirely.

Pretty sure you can opt-out currently if you have a DD-214 that shows discharge within 10 years of applying....

MILITARY

If you are an Ohio resident and are Active Duty Military or have an Honorable Discharge with a separation date that does not exceed 10 years from the date of application; the following documentation replaces the training certificate:

Military Issued Identification Card (if active duty including Reserves)
DD214 showing an honorable discharge within the last 10 years
Proof of current handgun training i.e. Range Proficiency, Weapons Card, etc.

WV has the same deal as DH posted. I just took a copy of my DD 214, they run a BG check. Pay your $60 and your good for 5 years.

Of course, this is a Constitutional Carry state but I travel outside of my 40 mile bubble occasionally so I keep the permit.

Texas is and has been the same-ish. AD was free with a mil range qual and under 21 AD can get theirs. Vets are $30 with the class/qual.

I found out recently just how terrible a state California is regarding CCW permits. Submitted my “Guard Card” application 9/13/18, still pending. Anyone got an in at CA BSIS?!?

Virginia CCW was basically the same. I showed the lady a DD-214 and a few Firearms Instructor Certs I have collected over the years and I was good to go.

I recently got my LEOSA card, so no longer have to worry about CCW and reciprocity etc. It's worth doing if you qualify to get LEOSA. The thing that really drove me to get it was my proximity to DC and Maryland. Several times I have found myself in one or the other with a 1911 in my center console that would land me in prison if something happened and it was found. With LEOSA I don't have to worry about it, and I can carry concealed anywhere in the US.

Not sure if adding a 214 requires/entails additional 'investigation'. In Florida, wife and I applied at the same time, hers was back in about a month, me about 6 months...

That's insane. I was given a letter on the spot authorizing CCW until I got my actual permit in the mail a week later. But, that was in VA. Still, even a month seems excessive to me.

IL residents, providing a copy of DD-214 halves the classroom training requirement from 16 hrs to 8. Considering IL is "shall issue," and other than being kinda pricey, isn't a big PITA, we did pretty decent with our CCW law, graded by IL standards. S/F....Ken M

I don't think that's all that new for Ohio. IIRC they've had that for a while. I remember my discharge was too long ago to qualify, but I remember seeing that back when I lived up there.

Got mine several years ago in Ohio with a DD-214, no classes, no hassle

Ohio just passed a law that Active Duty and Vets no longer have to pay for their CCW.

Yep. Same here. No other certs required. Just the 214. The CC permit also nulls the BG check here when purchasing a firearm.

You're out of state so you're lower on the priority list.

Contact them via phone and tell them you're a veteran. Average turn around time gets reduced to days instead of months.

Thanks. I submitted my DD214 with my application. Talked to them today. Think they said they are processing apps from sept 11th, I submitted sept 13th. Should hear something soon

Umm...CA is the most anti-2A state in the US. CCWs are case-by-case, issued by the CLEO. A very few issue readily (not a "shall issue" state), most only issue to politically-connected donors. Some issue to no one.
