Ohio: State legislature approves campus carry after university attack

Bite-sized higher ed news from a campus near you

Ohio lawmakers passed a bill Thursday that would allow licensed gun owners to carry guns on public university campuses following a knife attack at Ohio State University last month. Campus carry would have to be approved by a university's board of trustees. 

Under the law, guns would also be allowed in public areas of airports and childcare facilities unless they are explicitly banned there.

The bill has been sent to Gov. John Kasich's (R) office for his signature (Kenworthy, Christian Science Monitor, 12/9).
