    When it became possible for Ohioans to carry a concealed weapon with a permit, Columbus Mayor Mike Coleman made a move to keep the weapons out of city parks. Some new changes being considered at the statehouse would call for statewide gun laws only, and no city gun laws.

    The sponsor of the bill, Rep. Jim Aslanides of Coshocton, said that if gun laws are made only at the state level, gun owners will be better able to be aware of them and comply.

    "Because you have a modge-podge of different ordinances that vary from place to place, it becomes confusing and almost impossible to adhere to," Aslanides said.

    The much-debated Columbus assault weapons ban would no longer apply if the state legislation passes.

    Aslanides said needed laws can be implemented at the state level.

    "We're talking about a general law throughout the state that everyone can live with," Aslanides said.

    Though this bill is mostly targetted towards concealed carry, the preemption statute will have the effect of nullifying all anti-open carry laws statewide. The only thing that will keep Ohio from becoming a Gold Star open carry state is the requirement to have a CHL in order to have a loaded pistol in your car openly carried on your hip (similar to Washington, Alabama, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire), but that can be worked on after Governor Shaft is out of office.
