Ohio State Attack Spurs Campus Carry Consideration

posted on December 1, 2016

This week’s attack on the Ohio State campus has spurred renewed interest in campus carry legislation currently moving through the Ohio state legislature. 

House Bill 48 would relax laws barring permitted concealed carry on campus; it would also leave final campus carry decisions to each school’s board of trustees. Sponsored by Rep. Ron Maag, it passed the House 68-29, and was scheduled for consideration by the Senate this week. 

The Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence’s Toby Hoover repeated unwarranted fears: “If five people in that same building were armed, when plain-clothed people drew guns, how would you know who the good guys were? It would be chaos. These people are not police. They don’t know how to make decisions, and they don’t know each other.” 

Note to Toby: Nearly 15 million U.S. permit holders have already made the decision, and their record is exemplary.
