State Governor Signs Bill Nixing Concealed Carry Permits


( – Second Amendment advocates have reason to celebrate. Another state has joined the growing list of those that do not require a government-issued permit to carry a concealed firearm.

On Monday, March 14, Governor Mike DeWine of Ohio signed Senate Bill 215 into law. The bill removes the requirement to possess a permit to carry a concealed handgun, so long as the individual is legally allowed to own the firearm.

Previously, Ohioans were required to pass a background check and take eight hours of training before getting their permit.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) was quick to congratulate Gov. DeWine, saying, “Any right requiring a fee or government permission slip isn’t much of a right at all.”

According to the NRA, Ohio is now the 23rd state that doesn’t require a permit for law-abiding citizens to concealed carry. The other states include:

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • Idaho
  • Iowa
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Maine
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • Montana
  • New Hampshire
  • North Dakota
  • Oklahoma
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Vermont
  • West Virginia
  • Wyoming

With crime rates skyrocketing across the nation, perhaps criminals will think twice before committing a crime in Ohio. After all, they have no way of knowing which potential victim is actually armed and ready to defend themselves now.

Modern Survival Tips

Modern Survival is a publication that encourages its readers to be prepared citizens who can self-sustain, particularly in the aftermath of a large-scale or grid-down disaster. Their philosophy is to help individuals learn how to be ruggedly self-reliant, rather than reliant on the government, emergency services, or their extended families, neighbors, and friends in the wake of an emergency situation.

After a major disaster, emergency services and police protection are typically stretched extremely thin. Being prepared to survive after a disaster allows first responders to respond to those who need their help most. Survivalists seek to free up emergency services, resources, and assistance, effectively moving themselves to the back of the priority line because they have the skills to survive, and sometimes thrive, while others may not.

Life is full of unknowns, and it doesn’t take events like a major natural disaster or man-made terror attack for survival skills to be useful. In addition to the worst-case scenarios most people imagine, there are many everyday survival situations that individuals and families run into, as well. From ice storms to getting lost in the woods, Modern Survival shares tips to help readers brush up on their survival skills.

Modern Survival’s mission is to help people and families prepare to face the unknown, and come out on the other side. From wilderness survival tips to building a prepper pantry, this publication is dedicated to educating readers in the skills of our predecessors. They believe that modern society has effectively eliminated survival education, and they’re committed to bringing awareness to as many readers as possible.

As one of the most useful survival resources on the web, Modern Survival provides weekly news, tips, resources, tactics, and even skill development courses. They aim to keep their readers informed, protected, healthy, and happy, no matter what life brings their way.
