Ohio sports venues won't allow concealed weapons

Published: Wed, June 8, 2011 @ 10:24 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Legislative proposals to let Ohioans carry concealed guns in bars also would let them take the weapons into sports venues that serve alcohol, as long as they’re not drinking.

But that doesn’t mean fans at Cincinnati Bengals or Cleveland Browns games will be toting handguns anytime soon.

Representatives of the state’s largest stadiums and arenas say they plan to continue banning guns for safety reasons. They’re allowed to do so under state law.

The Republican-led Ohio House and Senate have passed separate versions of the proposed change in the concealed-carry rules. If they agree on one version, it’s not clear if it would be approved by GOP Gov. John Kasich. A spokesman says Kasich wants to see the details before deciding whether he’d sign it.

You don't need weapons in sports areanas or in bars. In my opinion, the risk is too high.

Nice to see how far we've fallen as a society by you determining what I NEED or don't NEED. Do some research on the second amendment and why it was included in the Bill of Rights.
