WTOL Editorial: It's now or never to be heard on guns in bars

If you believe guns and alcohol don't mix, then you won't be happy about this.

A proposal has made its way through the state house and senate that will allow people with concealed-carry permits to take firearms into bars and facilities where alcohol is served.

Across the country, 42 states have similar laws, but only four of those states have a concealed carry law as sweeping as the one proposed for Ohio.

Those in favor of the law say the people with permits are not the problem. They also say similar laws have not turned towns into the wild, wild west.

The governor is non-committal about signing it.

If you want to weigh in, now is the time.

Let your state representative or senator know how you feel.
