COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) — Ten years after Ohio’s conceal-carry law went into effect, more Ohioans are carrying concealed guns.
The Mansfield News Journal reported that a reduction in Ohio restrictions involving concealed handguns since Ohio began issuing licenses for them in 2004.
They can now be carried in cars, purses and bags and are allowed in bars and public parking lots.
Gun advocates have indicated that the changes were needed to get rid of rules that were too restrictive.
Anti-gun advocates said reduced restrictions encroach on freedoms.
