Ohio law gives the Attorney General the right to negotiate concealed carry handgun reciprocity agreements with other states. Under such agreements, Ohio and other states agree to respect each other's concealed carry laws and recognize each other's permit holders.
Effective March 23, 2015, Ohio recognizes the concealed handgun license of any non-resident who has a valid concealed handgun license from any other state, regardless of whether Ohio has entered into a reciprocity agreement with that state. Because of Ohio’s recognition of those licenses, the Attorney General has confirmed automatic reciprocity for Ohio license holders with several additional states.
Ohio permit holders have reciprocity with the following states by reciprocity agreement or by automatic reciprocity.
