OH – SELF-PROTECTION – Casey Goodson had a concealed handgun license. Here’s what that means

There are more than 75,000 valid holders of licenses to carry a concealed firearm in Franklin County. One of those people was Casey Goodsonn Jr., 23, a Black man who was shot and killed on Dec. 4 on Columbus’ Northeast Side by Franklin County sheriff’s deputy Jason Meade. Columbus police said Meade witnessed Goodson with a gun and confronted him. Goodson’s family said that Goodson likely was carrying a firearm, but they say he was a responsible gun owner. Columbus confirmed that Goodson had a valid concealed handgun license. The shooting has raised questions about the process for getting a concealed handgun license — commonly called a CHL — and the responsibilities for those who have the license. Eric Delbert, co-owner of L.E.P.D. Firing Range on the city’s Northwest Side and a certified training instructor for CHL classes, and Michael R. Moran, a local attorney, firearms instructor and adjunct professor at Capital University Law School, answered some common questions about the licenses. What is the difference between a CHL and a CCW license? Delbert said the terms are often used interchangeably, but a CHL specifically pertains to a license to carry a concealed handgun. A CCW, carrying a concealed weapon license, could apply to any type of weapon and is not limited to firearms. Both licenses are sometimes referred to as permits.  [full article]
