Kasich Will Sign Law Allowing Guns on Capitol Lot

Gov. John Kasich says he'll sign a new law allowing guns into the Ohio Statehouse parking garage - despite calls that he veto the bill in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Republican governor is expected to sign the legislation this week. It will allow guns for the first time in the parking garages underneath the Statehouse in Columbus.

Guns would have to be kept in cars, and would not be allowed into the Statehouse.

Kasich said he’s a Second Amendment supporter and that's not going change." He added that there were many other issues besides gun control involved in the Conn., massacre Friday.
