Gov. John Kasich on Thursday advocated a "red flag" law for Ohio, a ban on armor-piercing ammunition and other gun policy positions he says represent political consensus in a bellwether state that could fly nationally.

Lawmakers Consider Measures To Ease Ohio Gun Restrictions

May 7, 2015

Several bills to loosen restrictions on guns took the first step toward becoming law. Supporters say the bills would lift overly burdensome regulations, but others say it’s a sign that Ohio is going in the wrong direction.

Republican State Rep. Ron Hood of Ashville wants to change the law to essentially allow people to carry concealed weapons without a permit—which means bypassing background checks and training.

He says lawful gun owners in Ohio deserve these changes.
