HB 48, allowing for the right to carry firearms in daycare facilities, private airplanes, and non-secure areas of police stations and airports, passed the Ohio House and is scheduled for consideration in the Senate. In your view, does this legislation serve to protect the citizens of Ohio? Please defend your position.

I respect the right to bear arms, which must be balanced with ensuring safety & protecting life. Notably, HB 48 is opposed by the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police and Ohio Prosecuting Attorneys Association, recognizing that this policy intended to reduce hardships on those carrying guns could have negative impacts. Legislators should focus on strategies that work to keep our communities safe.
