Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed into law a bill allowing people with concealed carry permits to take their guns into bars and restaurants. Some restrictions apply, and the owner of the establishment has the option of banning the weapons, The (Wooster) Daily Record reported.
Hey Ma, where's my pistol, gotta go to a bar
Those packing heat aren't allowed to drink alcohol, and businesses will be allowed to post sign prohibiting firearms on their premises.
Water on the rocks, no Scotch Please!
The law takes effect in about 90 days. Senate Bill 17 passed along party lines, with Democrats in opposition.
The current law prohibits concealed carry licensees from taking weapons into rooms or open-air areas covered by type D liquor permits. That includes retail stores, restaurants, nightclubs, hotels, riverboats and shopping malls.
Hey man, wanna some hot dang burgers?
SB 17 allows concealed carry holders to enter those establishments with a weapon as long as they aren't under the influence of alcohol or other drugs and don't drink.
Now, I give you fair warning, either you or your head must be off, and that in about half no time! Take your choice!
Richard Mason of the Ohio Restaurant Association, in a letter to lawmakers, said his members "simply feel that alcohol and guns are not a good mix."
WarningDo not try this at home, in public or in the bar unless you are an Idiot Ohio Cowboy
