Guns N’ Pubs: CCW and Ohio SB 17

In light of changes to Ohio’s concealed carry laws that went into effect on Sept. 30, 2011, PBS Western Reserve explores how concealed carry permits work in the state of Ohio and what the new changes from Ohio Senate Bill 17 may mean.

From the classroom to the gun range to the sheriff’s office, follow NEWSNITE journalist Jody Miller as she goes through the steps required to acquire a concealed carry permit. In the process, Miller explores the new changes in the law — including carrying a weapon into an establishment serving alcohol — could mean.

The program explores the divergent perspectives of gun rights advocates and those working to end gun violence. Additionally, GUNS N’ PUBS explores the reality of dealing with concealed carry issues from the point of view of law enforcement officials. Those interviewed include Summit County Sheriff Drew Alexander, Geauga County Sheriff Daniel McClelland and Akron Fraternal Order of Police president Paul Hylinsky.
