COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio legislative proposal announced Wednesday seeks to give cities the ability to restrict the state laws allowing open or concealed carry of firearms during certain events.
The bill, with uncertain prospects, is expected to be introduced next week.
The idea for the legislation grew out of concerns raised about the state’s open-carry gun law during this week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland, said state Sen. Cecil Thomas, a Cincinnati Democrat and former police officer.
