Ohio lawmakers OK concealed weapons in day cares, colleges

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Lawmakers in Ohio have approved legislation expanding the state’s concealed-weapons law to allow guns in colleges and day cares and on private aircraft.

The bill that now goes to Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) still permits those places to ban guns if they want.

State lawmakers signed off on a flurry of new measures Thursday and into Friday as it ended its two-year legislative session.

The legislature is sending Kasich a bill that that would ban abortions after 20 weeks in addition to a proposal that would prohibit abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.

The so-called heartbeat bill could give Ohio one of the nation’s most stringent abortion restrictions.
