Gov. John Kasich is using an unusual procedure that will allow a gun bill to become law without his signature.

Kasich will not sign a bill that waives the concealed carry license fee and training mandate for active members of the armed forces or for honorably discharged or retired veterans. But it will become law without his signature once it is filed with the Secretary of State’s office. 

Kasich spokesman Jon Keeling said it’s the first time the governor has used this procedure to pass a law.
