AP: Concealed weapons push ''appears'' over

A bill to allow Ohioans to carry hidden guns is dead unless the Senate removes certain restrictions, including a requirement for fingerprinting, House Speaker Larry Householder said Friday.

"We had model legislation in Ohio that other states were going to use -- a fantastic bill," said Householder, a Republican from Glenford. "It goes over to the Senate and what we're about to get back is the most cumbersome, restrictive conceal-carry bill in the country. So we think we've got a problem."
