COLUMBUS, Ohio - Despite a last minute push to urge Gov. John Kasich to veto House Bill 495, which changes the way people can carry guns in vehicles and where vehicles with guns could park, the governor’s office says he will sign the legislation.

On Sunday, the Dean of Cleveland’s Trinity Cathedral called on the governor to veto the changes in the wake of the tragedy in Newtown Connecticut.

Rev. Tracey Lind saying allowing guns in state parking garages, like the ones under the state house would put “at risk thousands of Ohio school children every year who come to our statehouse,” she said.

“I think it’s time that we all be able to stand up to the gun lobby and say enough,” said Lind. “I think it’s time for us to have a real conversation both at the state level and at the federal level about real gun reform, about violence in America, about what’s making people want to do this sort of violence and how can we curb that.”

Kasich intends to sign gun bill, rejecting call for a veto in wake of Connecticut shootings

December 17, 2012 at 6:30 PM

Columbus -- Gov. John Kasich said Monday he intends to sign a new concealed carry law allowing guns into the Statehouse parking garage, rejecting a call to veto the bill in the wake of last week's shootings in Connecticut.

The Republican governor is expected to sign the legislation this week, which allows guns for the first time in the parking garages which run underneath the state Capitol in Columbus. Gun owners would have to keep their weapons in their cars as guns are forbidden within the walls of the Statehouse.
