Ohio Public Radio (NPR): ''Concealed Weapons Bill (likely) Dead For Now''
"A plan to legalize concealed weapons in Ohio has just been killed in the legislature. State representatives have gone home and won't return until January. That's the earliest the proposal could be brought back to life", Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports.
Republicans representatives Larry Householder and Tim Grendell can be heard denouncing the Senate's attempts to gut this bill, and Representative Jim Aslanides (sponsor of HB274) vows to return in January with a new bill, and says he is already lining up co-sponsors.
When you hear the next set of quotes, you'll realize Democrats Lance Mason and Ed Jerse need to be informed about the benefits of Concealed Carry Reform, as experienced in 43 other states.
