ahh im going to die?
COLUMBUS, Ohio Nov 30, 2006 (AP)— The state House and Senate passed legislation that allows for uniform concealed handgun laws across the state but would wipe out municipalities' weapons bans and gun sales regulations.
Republican Gov. Bob Taft, who for months has opposed overriding local gun laws, said he would veto the bill. About 80 local ordinances regulate what guns can be carried, sales standards and child safety in about 20 communities around the state, according to the Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence, which opposed the proposal.
Republican Sen. Jim Jordan said the legislation passed Wednesday would clarify the rights of Ohioans who are licensed to carry concealed weapons. "We can't have local governments apply different standards when dealing with a constitutional right," Jordan said. Jordan said state and federal gun regulations still would apply, including those that prohibit weapons in schools. But he conceded that the bill would prohibit local governments
from passing future gun regulations, including those that ban people with licenses from bringing their weapons to playgrounds and parks.
During the Senate debate, most of the criticism was aimed at a provision that would prohibit local governments from passing weapons bans that are stricter than state law, and would nullify municipal bans on assault weapons such as ones adopted in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dayton, Toledo and Columbus.
Republican House Speaker Jon Husted didn't speculate about whether he could muster the three-fifths majority needed to override a veto.
