OH – SELF-PROTECTION – State won’t ban guns from Ohio Statehouse grounds ahead of ‘armed march’ by Trump supporters  

COLUMBUS — State officials plan no last-minute moves to ban guns from the grounds of the Ohio Statehouse ahead of a planned “armed march” by pro-Donald Trump forces who mistakenly believe the election was stolen from the president.

A change in the Ohio Administrative Code in April 2019, to recognize state laws permitting the carrying of concealed guns by permit holders, allows hidden and openly carried weapons outside the Statehouse, although the prior ban seldom was enforced.

The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board, which operates the Statehouse and its grounds, is not planning an attempt to quickly outlaw guns as Gov. Mike DeWine activates Ohio National Guard troops, said spokesman Mike Rupert.

“Board permission is not required for lawful activity,” Rupert said.

Mindful of the deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol a week ago by a mob opposing the Wednesday inauguration of Democrat President-elect Joe Biden as illegitimate, a worried DeWine has nearly 600 troops on standby to assist law enforcement.

In Michigan, a state commission acted this week to ban the open carrying of guns within its statehouse in Lansing in response to planned marches on state capitols. Ohio forbids guns within its Statehouse and government buildings on Capitol Square.  [full article]
