Gun Rights Group on Ohio Campus Carry Bill: It Doesn’t go Far Enough

The campus carry bill passed the state house and senate by overwhelming margins.

In the wake of the Ohio State terrorist attack that sent 12 people to the hospital, Ohio senators approved a bill that would allow licensed gun owners to carry their concealed weapons on campus.

State senators passed the bill with a vote of 22-8 on Friday, following a 68-25 vote of approval by state representatives late Thursday evening, reports Reuters.

The bill will now be sent to the desk of Governor John Kasich (R). If signed into law, Ohio public universities will have the option to allow concealed carry on their campuses.
