HB495, sponsored by Rep. Terry Johnson (R) and passed into law last December, became effective March 27, 2013, and is now the law of the land. The reforms make three changes to current law:
Eliminates the "demonstrated competency" requirement for second and future CHL renewals, making CHL training similar to a hunting license.
Fixes the definition of a "loaded gun" to match the commonly accepted definition.
Allows law-abiding gun owners to have their firearms stored in their cars in the state-owned parking garages such as the one under the Statehouse.
There are now ways to have a loaded magazine in your vehicle.

Well done, Ohioans! This Coloradan wishes our elected misrepresentatives’ efforts had been as productive as yours.
1.The magazine or speed loader does not fit any firearm being transported in the vehicle; or
A step forward but still too many nits in the law.
A non-CHL holder with a magazine or speed loader is now somehow responsible for what firearm one of his passengers may have?
