Hey, first time poster. I am going to be going through the process of getting my CCW in Ohio soon. I had some concerns with all the new rules and changes.

First being, under Obama you couldn't get a concealed weapons permit if you were on SSI and the SSI workers had to give names of their clients to Nics. A little backstory. I was shot in the face July last year with a .22 pistol. Person next to me at the range ND'd. A week in the icu and I was out. I couldn't go back to work for a few months so my doctors told me to apply for ssi/disability. I was approved. I didn't even think to try getting my CCW because of Obama's law. I saw a few days ago that Trump got rid of it with an executive order. So can I get my CCW now, despite being on SSI?

All advice is appreciated!

Check the Federal Register to se if that was done by executive order. If so it should be in effect. If it was part of a congressional bill you need to investigate and see when it becomes law.

All the news outlets are saying it was an executive order, along with the NRA. So is it in effect? If I apply and get denied for it, would I feasibly stand a chance for getting it overturned because of the executive order? I'm pretty nervous because my local sheriff is pretty anti-concealed carry for non vets/leo.

Hate to admit it, but you need to talk to a lawyer. Since you're on SSI, you might try legal aide.

There is nothing on the application for CCW in Ohio about SSI barring you from getting it. I am just worried that Obama's exec order put my name into nics. The only question that comes close is if I was declared mentally deficient, which I have never been.

Check, but I seem to recall it is only for those on SSI who cannot mange there own affairs and have a guardian. Just being on SSI for a physical disability but with no other problems that deem you unable to care for yourself doesn't apply as I read it. JMO
Would SSI be considered the "guardian?" I am on it for anxiety from getting shot. I get the checks delivered to my apartment in which I live alone. I manage my own affairs but I'm not sure they see it that way.

That's the way I've read it as well.

Being on SSI, can you call legal aid ?
Honestly I have no idea. This whole SSI thing is new to me. I applied after getting shot. Got approved a few months after that. They called me to tell me I was approved. I got a letter in the mail saying how much I would be getting per month and that was that. Now every month I get a check and a pamphlet about going back to work part time on SSI.

SSI is just supplemental income and the obama EO does not apply unless you required to have a conservator or guardian to manage your affairs. As long as you can manage your affairs without a guardian you are eligible for a CCW.

I manage all my own affairs so I guess I am in the clear. Thanks for the info!

You're worrying about nothing. What you stated in your OP is incorrect. Obama's EO was about possessing firearms when mentally incapacitated, not about obtaining a state carry permit. Makes no difference as it's all null and void.

Apply for your permit.

Apply for your permit.
On the app it also asks if I have been ordered mentally defective. Does being on SSI for anxiety make me that? Or is that just for people that have been declared that by a judge?

That would only apply if you were involuntarily confined.
