In The Region:

The school shootings in Connecticut are sparking more debate over a bill Ohio legislators just okayed, allowing the storing of concealed weapons in cars in the statehouse parking garage in downtown Columbus.

Gun control activists are urging Governor John Kasich to veto the proposal, but he's signaling that he agrees with supporters of gun owner rights. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports.

Gun control activists say the Connecticut mass murder shows what can happen when anger and guns mix.  Toby Hoover poses this question to the governor,   “Do you have a friend or neighbor who is too angry to have a gun?”

Hoover wants the governor to veto the bill Legislators passed legalizing concealed weapons inside motor vehicles parked underneath the capital building.

But the governor plans to sign the bill into law.

He does not see the CT school shootings as a reason for gun control.

In his words, “I’m a 2nd amendment supporter and that’s not going to change.  There are a range of issues at play here involving mental health, school security, and a culture that at times fails to reject the glorification of violence that can desensitize us to the sanctity and majesty of life.”
