Concealed Carry is growing in Ohio



Like it or not, we have the right to bare arms. But, if you have a gun, knowing the correct way to use it is a must.

The Ohio Attorney General’s office recently released their annual report for the 2017 concealed carry licenses that were issued.

In Ohio, there were 131,345 concealed carry licenses issued. The Ohio County Sheriff’s office, which began issuing licenses in 2004, reported issuing 77,281 new licenses and renewing 54,064 licenses in 2017.

To obtain a license, a gun holder must take a CCW class and pass a test. Here are some of the top locations in the Dayton/Cincinnati area for the class and testing:
