Desiree Tims Condemns DeWine Signature of Permitless Carry Bill

COLUMBUS — Today, Desiree Tims, President and CEO of Innovation Ohio, released the following statement condemning Governor Mike DeWine’s signature of SB 215, allowing concealed carry of firearms without training or permits:

“Governor DeWine and Ohio’s Republican supermajority just passed an anti-life bill that will cause the deaths of Ohio children. They ignored grieving Dayton families and signed away Ohioans’ lives.

“No one asked for this bill. Police, parents, and responsible gun owners alike actively fought against it. But national Republican money once again spoke louder than Ohio values.”
