The Ohio Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday in a lawsuit that questions the constitutionality of Ohio law that makes it illegal to conceal a gun unless it’s for self-defense. The lawsuit was filed by a national gun-rights group, The Second Amendment Foundation, and some individuals from Cincinnati who want to ease Ohio’s gun restrictions. Cincinnati attorney Bill Gustavson says if justices toss out the law, it is likely Ohioans could begin to conceal weapons without having to get a license for the purpose. He says any law-abiding citizen could carry a concealed firearm. It would make Ohio just the second state to allow concealed weapons without a license. Of the 44 states that permit concealed carry, only Vermont does not require a license.
