Negotiations in Ohio
The Columbus Dispatch reports on negotiations over gun legislation in Ohio.
It sounds as if statewide pre-emption is the issue, and the Highway Patrol wanted, in exchange, a requirement that CCW permittees carry openly while in vehicles. Highway Patrol agreed instead to an increased penalty for failure to inform an officer, during a traffic stop, that the permittee has a firearm.
Does seem a tempest in a teapot, since I doubt there has ever been a case, anywhere in the US, of a permittee drawing on an officer, let alone doing so in a traffic stop. Fugitive felons do that, but fearing that someone (already checked out and found to have no significant criminal record) might murder an officer to prevent getting three points on his driving record is a bit much.
