State Representative Ron Young (R - Leroy Township) today was proud to co-sponsor and vote for the passage of HB 235 which gives our veterans the right to carry concealed without having to complete the training requirements otherwise called for in Ohio’s Concealed Carry law and  would waive the concealed handgun license fee for applicants who are currently serving in or who have retired from the United States military.

House Bill 235 allows for active or reserve members of the armed forces of the United States, members who have retired from the military, or members who were honorably discharged from service to submit evidence of service as proof of competency in place of the otherwise required eight hour training course and waive the concealed handgun license fees.

“It is an honor to be able to not only recognize the aptitude and skill of our active and retired military but also give some relief from the license fees.” Young noted “These brave Americans put there lives on the line in order to protect our way of life. This is the least that we can do to show our appreciation for their sacrificial service for our country.”

House Bill 235 will now undergo consideration by the Ohio Senate.
