Carrying weapons without a permit goes into effect today

Ohio's new carry without a permit law goes into effect Monday.

Ohio is now among about half of the states in the country that allow concealed carry of a firearm without a permit, as long as you meet the requirements.

Governor Mike DeWine signed the bill into law this spring. The new law came into force on Monday.

The Enquirer has reported on how the previous laws were applied, how many people were affected, and the racial disparities in the cases.

People who want to carry a concealed firearm must be 21 years old and not have a felony on their record. Basically, those who were previously able to get a permit can now carry a gun without one.

People must also obey many of the same rules that permit holders must follow. If you carry a weapon, you cannot drink alcohol and there are places where it is prohibited to carry.
