The legislature again will be considering whether Ohioans should be allowed to carry concealed weapons – a subject that resulted in much debate in its last session. A concealed-weapons will has been introduced in the house the republican representative Jim Aslanides of Coshocton and 55 co-sponsors from both parties. The bill will allow citizens who meet certain requirements to carry concealed weapons. The House and Senate passed such bills last year, but the legislation died before differences between the versions were settled. House speaker Larry Householder and Senate president Doug White have said the bill is not a priority this year. Governor Bob Taft has said he will veto any concealed-weapons bill that doesn’t have substantial support from law enforcement officials.
