Link to Ohio CHL-holders acting in self-defense report page

There was a good deal of acrimony over the need for Ohio's Concealed Handgun Licensure law, and the General Assembly was accused of knuckling under to a vocal micro-minority. As the establishment media and the gun ban crowd told it, no one needed/wanted this law. We will defer to the anti-gun industry to produce their examples of someone obtaining a license to go on a crime spree, or committing a crime of passion due to having a firearm readily at hand, as they predicted, and instead concentrate on the known examples of a CHL-holder acting in self-defense.

(Disclaimer: these are just the examples we know of and can independently document - there are likely many others. For a list of many other examples of Ohioans using firearms for self-defenses in the past three years, but whom were not specifically identified in news accounts as CHL-holders, click here.)

It is not our intent to re-open old wounds or to gain from these tragedies. However, it is critical that the public understand how well this law is working. The following accounts are based upon media accounts, public records and/ or the permission of those involved.
