Over the weekend, a gunman in Las Vegas fired dozens of rounds into a massive crowd of concert goers, killing more than 50 and wounding more than 500. As the nation mourns, discusses, and questions this—the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history—and other mass shootings like at the Pulse Night Club and the Eagles of Death Metal concert in Paris, gun legality has become a reoccurring theme.
Here are all the gun bills currently pending in Ohio, according to The Dispatch:
• Banned place forgiveness: House Bill 233 would allowed a concealed-carry permit holder to pack head in “gun-free” zones. If asked to leave, the concealed-carry permit holder must abide to avoid criminal charges. They could return 30 days later with their concealed weapon.
• Duty to notify police: House Bill 142 would remove the need for concealed-carry permit holders to vocalize their possession of a firearm when they get pulled over by an officer. They would only have to divulge this information if the officer asks for their driver’s license.
• Armed elected officials: House Bill 310 would allow elected officials with concealed-carry permits to have them in their possession while in governmental buildings. Currently, firearms are banned in such establishments.
• Carry at will: House Bill 201, would give any law-abiding Ohioan over the age of 21 the right to carry a concealed firearm without a permit.
