Maine is the only state left that Ohio can get to honor them. The other states in red do not have a law allowing them to honor other states.

Gary, you need to change the color of Texas on the map to yellow, like you have WI. From the link you posted when you click on Ohio:

Quote:
Ohio
Reciprocal
Effective April 28, 2015, Governor Abbott has issued a proclamation that allows persons with concealed handgun licenses from Ohio to legally carry in Texas. Ohio residents will be required to follow Texas law while carrying in this state. NOTE: Texas only extends reciprocity to Ohio concealed handgun licenses issued on or after March 23, 2015. Please read the attached agreement for additional detailed information.

Thank you. I had forgotten that Texas requires a NICS check before they will honor a state.

So will I be legal after my next renewal. Or does it only apply to new first time issue dates?

You'll be good to go with this enhanced reciprocity next time you renew.

I'm a little confused here. I renewed my chl in Feb. 2014. Does this mean My CCW will not be reconnised in TX. until my next renewal.

That is correct, HMiller111. TX only recognizes licenses issued or renewed on or after March 23 2015 since that is when Ohio started performing a NICS check when issuing the license.

HMiller111:

Welcome Aboard! Guess I'm a little behind on the welcomes....

There's a sticky at http://forums.buckeyefirearms.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10097 that you might want to have a look at, but it's not mandatory. Might be sleep inducing, though....

I think that one other state - MI or WI? - has the same rule. I'm good in TX because they honor my PA license, but not everybody has one of those.

Enjoy!

I wonder what will happen when someone with a CHL prior to that date get's stopped in WI/TX
You know it's bound to happen.

Joe:

I'm wondering if just having a current sales slip for a firearm purchased after 03/25 (or whatever date - I can't remember) via an NICS check ought to get your chestnuts out of the fire....

Legislative oopsie....

My vote would be to give your favorite gun pusher $10 or so to run you through NICS and return a "certificate" that you could stick to the back of the CHL, or maybe just give to the Sheriff to issue a new CHL with a friendlier date on it.

Actually, I think this thing may have come together without our legislature and lobbyists (i.e., BFA :D) being able to straighten this one out.

Regards,

Stu

I think the better approach would be to get a PA non-resident for $20 to cover you until your next renewal. I have doubts that the LEO on the side of the road would accept your assurances that the proof of having passed a NICS check recently makes your OH CHL issued before the cutoff the same as one issued after.

JustaShooter:

Correct, but some of the guys will spend more than $20 in gas to get TO PA to do that. No big deal for me - I can about see PA from the Club, and Lawrence County, other than "local" references, is friendly and geared for handling non-resident applications, as are a bunch more in the area, but if you're in Sandusky or Dayton? :D

It would be nice if the local Sheriff would let us come by for the NICS check (or accept something from our local gun pusher), and re-issue. That's the legislative failure....

For most of us, though, it currently means renewing (or getting) a PA license to pick up PA and TX, and a couple of others. Shouldn't have to get the PA license until our OH licenses can be renewed....

Other than the cost and inconvenience (ignoring the $20 part), though, we have bigger fish to fry in Columbus.

Regards,

Stu

I agree, it was a legislative failure - heck, as soon as I read the proposed legislation I saw this coming and I'm not a lawyer. MyWifeSaidYes has started a letter writing campaign to see if he can get legislation introduced to do something about it but even if it gets traction it's likely to take a while to happen. But, make some noise and maybe it can be fixed in time to be helpful.

Also understood about the fuel cost and inconvenience - I'm just in the Akron/Canton area and it's still better than a half day and over a half tank of gas to the closest non-resident friendly sheriff's offices in PA (Meadville or Butler) and back.

My biggest concern is that there will be collateral damage simply because many OH CHL holders don't know that restriction, and several of the "CCW Apps" I've seen don't make the distinction clear. All they see is the press release from the AG office and see "Texas Reciprocal Agreement" and don't look and farther before heading to TX while armed...

usacarry.org states that Texas only allows Ohio permits that were ISSUED after 3/22/15, not RENEWED. For Wisconsin, it says permits ISSUED OR RENEWED after 3/22/15 are accepted.

Does this mean that a renewal will not get you covered in Texas?
