Reaction to Senate passing concealed-carry bill(OH) ^ | 13 April, 2011 | Stefano DiPietrantonio

A bill allowing concealed guns to be carried into establishments where alcohol is served has been approved in the Ohio Senate.

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the measure Tuesday by a 7-2 vote. The full Senate approved it late Wednesday with a 25 to 7 vote.

Under the legislation, those with the weapons would be prohibited from drinking any alcohol.

More states are allowing concealed carry than ever before, due in part some say, after a horrendous 1991 shooting in Killean, Texas, at Luby's Cafeteria, where a gunman killed 22 people then himself.

Customers at a shooting range in Sharonville say this new bill gives them a way to legally protect themselves, if ever faced with a similar situation.

The rapid-fire gun shots at the Target World shooting range, are the sounds of our Second Amendment, getting a shot in the arm.

"Right now, the political climate is very much in-favor of the Second Amendment," said Todd Heimann, Assistant Manager at Target World.

The concealed carry legislation got stalled before, but now it's back with a bang.

"It is a giant step forward," Heimann said. "It allows us to not have to alter our lifestyle in order to enjoy going out."

Heimann said he's happy with the way this new bill was written.

"We heard that when concealed carry was passed, that road rage would happen and there'd be shooting in the streets and so on and so forth, the reality is, that nowhere in the United States has that happened," Heimann said.

There are only seven states that don't allow restaurant carry. Ohio is one of them. I hope that this bill will change that.
