Ohio to Allow Concealed Guns in Bars

On Wednesday, Ohio lawmakers passed a bill to allow people with concealed weapons permits to take firearms into facilities where alcohol is served.

In a dumbfounding show of faith in people who hang out in bars with concealed weapons, the provision only allows the firearms in facilities where alcohol is served if bearers do not themselves drink. If a person with a concealed weapon were to drink alcohol, he would be committing a felony offense. Of course, there are no enforcement provisions in place in the legislation.

Republican Governor John Kasich has supported the bill allowing concealed weapons in bars.

In addition to allowing guns in bars, the new provision allows loaded handguns in vehicles, even if they are not secured in a holster.
