He specializes in defending Ohio concealed carriers in court and he recently wrote the changes to Ohio’s concealed carry laws allowing for the restaurant carry and removing the car carry restrictions.

[Armed2Defend is pleased to have Ken give presentations on Ohio CHL law during our (state mandated) 12 hr marathon CHL classes.]
Ken is a regular speaker at our Concealed Carry classes. We are frequently told by our students that his two-hour presentation on the law is one of highlights of their 12-hour day.
The Ohio AG website has a whole area dedicated to the subject of concealed carry. They even have a link to a “Model Concealed Carry Sign”. Unfortunately, it’s an “Anti” sign not a “Welcome” sign:
I’ve sent a message through the Contact tab:
Under “Nature of Concern/Inquiry:” I put:
The only CCW sign provided as a download on your website bans the legal concealed carry of a handgun on posted premises.
Under “How would you like the Attorney General to Help?” I put:
Post this on the website along with (or instead of) the “no guns” sign currently posted:
So far I’ve only received an auto-reply confirming that my message got through. Maybe if enough of us make the same suggestion we’ll see the Buckeye Firearms “CCW Welcome” sign posted along with (or instead of!) the other one.
Armed2Defend provides the 12 hour classroom/range instruction that is required for an Ohio CHL.
Like Kevin says, “this is why we do this training”.
Dear Second Amendment Supporter,
By now, we all know the story of William Bartlett, the CHL licensee in Canton who was berated, threatened with execution, and ultimately arrested by a Canton patrolman who falsely accused him of failing to notify.
Upon learning of this travesty, Ohioans for Concealed Carry obtained the dashcam video and posted it on YouTube, where it quickly went viral. OFCC then created a defense fund to make sure that Bartlett was not railroaded. It further contacted Canton officials to ensure that the officers were subject to disciplinary review. We are currently awaiting the results of that process.
In the mean time, notification charges against Bartlett were dismissed by a judge who refused to waste more of the taxpayers’ money on a bogus prosecution.
From this and similar incidents, OFCC realized that the notification law needs to change. OFCC now is working with Ohio Senator Jordan on legislation which will eliminate the notification requirement. Canton City Council President Allen Schulman has offered to assist us in this effort.
OFCC is an all-volunteer organization, but it incurs expenses in running its website, paying for postage and phone lines, and retaining legal counsel when representation is required. Membership dues cover some of these expenses, but OFCC needs additional help to be truly proactive for its members, which includes our effort to eliminate the notification law.
To help, please consider making a gift to OFCC to help us expand the work we are doing. OFCC will continue to be a volunteer organization with an unpaid staff. All funds will continue to be used for operations and expenses.
