It is already illegal in Ohio to be intoxicated and in possession of a firearm. That law is not changing. It will still be illegal.

Businesses are allowed by law to post "no guns" signs, prohibiting firearms on their premises, should they choose. This law is also not changing. Property rights are not being infringed upon.

Criminals already ignore both laws. They will continue to do so.

I carried my firearm into alcohol-serving restaurants in both Michigan and Texas (it is legal in both states, provided you have a permit). I was sober when I arrived, I didn't drink any alcohol while I was there and didn't shoot anyone.

Lets see, that Schlarman guy took out two and wounded two others with just a knife last month. He probably could have killed 8-10 had he had a gun.
Having guns in bars is about 10 times as dumb as spending 3 hours in a bar and driving home. And this is coming from a guy who loves guns and bars. Gotta ask yourself, does this pass the common sense test? I think not.
"I think not."

Obviously, you're right...you didn't think, just like you didn't read the bill...or if you did, you didn't comprehend it.

Who cares what minorities want. If you represent less than 3% of the state, you deserve no rights, your freedom should just be ignored.
Spoken like a true bigot.

Who appointed YOU the spokesman for holders of CHL's? When and how did you conduct your research?
