Bill would allow guns on campus, in church

| June 23, 2011

A local lawmaker wants to allow Ohio gun owners to carry guns in colleges, churches, day care centers and government buildings.

The bill would also eliminate the requirement for gun owners to carry their permit along with a firearm.

This legislation, if passed, would expand on the bill that passed last week allowing guns in bars and restaurants serving alcohol as long as the gun owner isn’t drinking.

State Rep. John Adams, R-Sidney, is proposing House Bill 256 for the third time and believes it could pass this session with the House back in Republican control. Previously, the bill never passed a committee vote.

Adams, the bill’s only sponsor for the bill, said gun training would still be required. Carrying a permit would not. Only Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming allow this.
