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.
With the shootings in Connecticut fresh in mind, members of faith community in Ohio are speaking out. The Rev. Tracey Lind at Trinity Cathedral in Cleveland is leading the charge against a loosening of gun restrictions.
Many pastors throughout Northeast Ohio Sunday began their sermons with prayers for the 28 people who died last Friday, 20 of them 6- and 7-year olds. But Tracey Lind quickly switched gears to talk about an Ohio bill lawmakers passed Thursday, which is awaiting Gov. John Kasich’s signature.
