A bill is moving through the Ohio House that would let off duty police officers carry weapons into gun-free zones. This bill has the support of police officers.
The Ohio Fraternal Order of Police says officers always have a responsibility to take action whether they’re on duty or not. And the union is advocating for a bill it says will help protect gun-free zones from attackers.
Opponents say the proposal violates the rights of property owners who make the decision to restrict guns.
