Temporary CCW Permit Bypasses Training
DAYTON -- The question should you be able to get a gun sooner, if you fear someone's out to get you?
A new law in Kentucky speeds up concealed carry licenses for people who get protective orders.
And it turns out, Ohio has a similar law, but some say they don't agree with it.
Ohio allows those who file an emergency protective order to come down to their sheriff's office and apply for a temporary concealed carry license.
No training required, just a background check.
Owning a gun is a constitutional right.
"Just to be able to protect yourself," said Lori McGohan.
No one is denying that.
But a new law that took effect Tuesday in Kentucky is stirring up controversy.
Now anyone with a domestic violence protection order can head to their sheriff's office, fill out some paperwork and with a background check walk out with a temporary concealed carry license.
Turns out, Ohio already has this law in place it's just not used often.
"You have to prove you have a need for this license a temporary restraining order against somebody for fear is enough to get that license," said Brad Hamilton, Owner, Fmaily Tactical Training.
In Ohio, you have to go through 12 hours of traning to get a c-c-w... The law for the temporary license... By-passes that training.
"Nobody's born with instaneous knowledge, for someone to think they can pick up a firearm and use it, is unrealistic in my opinion," said Hamilton, "Everybody needs training."
Becky Frame is also a NRA certifed instructor and believes there should be proper training, but every woman should be able to protect themselves.
"Women sometimes feel that they maybe don't have the right to feel protected, they maybe don't have the right information to make sure that we're not being victimized," said Becky Frame, NRA Certified Instructor.
"It actually makes the situation more volatile and more lethal for that woman," said Judy Strnad, Executive Director with Artemis Center.
Judy Strand is with the Artemis Center in Dayton, the agency focuses on getting women who are abused out of the situation and don't agree with the temporary CCW law.
"You put a gun into someone's hand who's very vulnerable, who has been hurt, and if they don't know how to use it properly, anything can happen," said Strnad.
Ohio's temporary CCW permit expires after 90 days.
At that point, you can take the training necessary for a five year permit or let it expire.
