Yeah it is worth it I think.
When Ohio first passed our CHL the law was pretty crazy too. Our car carry law was that the pistol had to be in a locked case in plain siight or in the holster in plain sight. Meaning we had to uncover our concealed weapon while in the car and recover when we exited the car. No carry I no places that served alcohol.
We have nibbled away at some of the more crazier bits. Car carry is much better but we still need to notify LEO when stopped. We can carry now into any unposted restaurant.
Still needs work but it is better then where we started. But I am positive that all of us that got our CHLs and supported our in state pro-carry groups gave us a voice in the state. That helped make the changes happen.
