Ohio Measures Would Expand Right To Carry

posted on May 14, 2015

Ohio lawmakers have proposed two bills that would extend the right to carry, allowing permit holders (with certain restrictions) to carry in places such as churches, school zones, college campuses and daycare facilities.

One bill, proposed by House State Government Committee Chairman Ron Maag, would allow concealed-carry permit holders to carry in churches, daycares, colleges and universities so long as there was written authorization in place allowing the concealed carry of handguns. Another bill, by Rep. Anne Gonzales, would protect the right to carry in school zones.
