SB184:Castle Doctrine/ Firearms bill headed to Governor for signature!
Submitted by cbaus on Thu, 05/29/2008 - 14:40.
One day after the Ohio House passed amended SB184 with a strong bipartisan majority, the Ohio Senate has concurred to the improvements with an equally strong and bi-partisan 25-7 vote.
Buckeye Firearms Association Chairman Jim Irvine said, "This is an important law for all law-abiding gun owners. It fixes many problems that have plagued hunters and concealed carry license holders for years. Good people have been entrapped by bad laws."
The bill now awaits Governor Strickland’s signature.
"I am proud to support this important legislation that protects gun owners throughout the state of Ohio," Strickland stated. "I look forward to signing these common sense protections into law."
"Law-abiding Ohioans finally have a simple and understandable way to transport firearms, and no longer have to fear getting trapped up in the legal system for having lawfully defended themselves in their home," continued Irvine. "We thank the legislature and the Governor for addressing these important issues."
In addition to Ohio's Castle Doctrine protections, amended SB184 contains technical corrections and improvements including:
Clarification on how persons without a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) can legally transport firearms in an automobile
Allows lawful concealed carry in your home without a Concealed Handgun License (CHL)
Clarifies an unloaded firearm as one with no ammunition in the firearm or in magazines or speedloaders, regardless of where else ammunition is stored
Allows lawful Concealed Carry in retail establishments with a class D6/D8 liquor license (package sales only, not bars/restaurants)
Allows pick up/drop off by CHL holders in school safety zones
Provides for mandatory legal fees for gun owners who require court orders to have firearms returned to them.
Allows lawful Concealed Carry in state owned shelters, restrooms and parking garages.
Decriminalizes Concealed Carry in privately owned parking garages.
Prohibits landlords from prohibiting tenants from owning/carrying firearms
Allows CHL holders to carry firearm in unlocked glove compartment or center console.
Expunged/Sealed records are no longer considered when applying for a CHL.
Written test is no longer required for competency renewal of CHL
Several law enforcement agencies strenuously objected to defining a "loaded gun" to mean specifically a gun with ammunition in the gun. They seem to prefer the current confusing and haphazard standard that will be fixed by this bill.
The Ohio Prosecutors Association vehemently objected to the change which will require them to assume crime victims are innocent until proven guilty. They argued to keep in place an unfair system where crime victims must prove their innocence after they successfully stop a violent attack with deadly force. In the past, victims have been presumed guilty until they proved themselves innocent.
SB184 will reduce penalties for good people ensnared by confusing laws. This change focuses our criminal justice system on punishing criminals and removes undue burden from law-abiding gun owners, police, and the general population.

We've added more content to it.
What a great day for Ohioans!!! We had a great week in the Statehouse, and I will go out on a limb and call this sweeping gun legislation, especially for Ohio.
Buckeye Firearms, and especially our Legislative Chair, Ken Hanson, along with NRA-ILA liaison John Howenwarter, worked our/their butts off for this one, and we can now get it to our pro gun Governor.

Ohio Expands Right to Self-Defense
Tuesday, June 10, 2008
Fairfax, VA-Ohio Governor Ted Strickland today signed the National Rifle Association (NRA)-backed “Castle Doctrine” legislation into law to expand the self-defense rights of law-abiding citizens. SB 184, sponsored by State Senator Steve Buehrer (R-1), protects the rights of innocent victims to defend themselves from criminal attack while expanding the rights of concealed-carry permit holders.
“I want to thank all parties concerned for working together to make this victims’ rights bill the law in Ohio,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA's chief lobbyist. “When you're confronted by a criminal, you don't have the luxury of time. Under the ‘Castle Doctrine’ provision, if someone breaks into your occupied home or temporary habitation, or your occupied car, you now have an initial presumption that you may act in self defense and you will not be second-guessed by the State. The ability to protect yourself and your family from harm is important no matter where you are.”
Also included in SB 184 are several pro-gun provisions that make Ohio's concealed carry laws more “user friendly”. Among these revisions include important clarifications for persons without a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) to legally transport firearms in an automobile, and pick up/drop off abilities for license holders in school safety zones. The bill also designates mandatory legal fees for gun owners who require court orders to have firearms returned to them, decriminalizes concealed carry in privately owned parking garages, allows permit holders to carry a firearm in an unlocked glove compartment or center console and removes the written test requirement for renewal of a concealed handgun license.
“The Castle Doctrine bill is about putting the law back on the side of the victim, the way it's supposed to be,” concluded Cox.

Wow, I really missed the boat on this one. Had no idea. Though in my defense my car radio stopped working, and I just got my cable modem replaced, so I've been out of the loop in a lot of ways. I'll have to hit up the Buckeye Firearms site and get spun back up to speed. Excellent job to all those that helped get this passed! My hats off to you!
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.
