Starting in a few months, people in Ohio will be able to carry concealed firearms in public without a license or training.
On Monday, Republican Gov. Mike DeWine signed into law Senate Bill 215, which permits anyone over age 21 to have a concealed gun on their person unless state or federal law bans them from owning a gun.
Previously, Ohio residents had to take eight hours of training and get a license and a background check to be able to carry concealed weapons.
When the law takes effect in June, Ohio will become the 23rd U.S. state allowing concealed carry without a license.
