I Like A Kick of Firearms in My Mixed Drinks

On June 30, 2011, Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich signed into law “a bill that allows gun owners in the state to carry concealed weapons into bars and other places where alcohol is served.”  The effects of alcohol on decision making was acknowledged, however, which is why the new law “prohibits gun owners from consuming alcohol or being under the influence of alcohol or drugs when they carry their weapons into bars.”  Phew, I’m glad they implemented an honor system, because we all know that everyone is always honest especially when it comes to whether or not they’re concealing weapons and how much we’ve had to drink!

But wait, there’s more: “The new laws allow residents to carry concealed handguns into licensed establishments in the state, including shopping malls and sporting venues.  The new law also allows a person with a concealed carry license to transport a loaded handgun in a motor vehicle without securing it in a holster, case, bag or box — and allows them to remove a handgun from a secure location.”
