Mike DeWine’s Dangerous Bill that Allows Guns in Schools Becomes Law

Latest News

As of yesterday, Ohio schools will have more guns in the classroom, thanks to Mike DeWine, as his dangerous bill that lowers the training required by teachers to carry a gun in schools from about 700 hours to 24 goes into effect.

Two of Ohio’s biggest school districts — Akron Public Schools and the Cleveland Metropolitan School District — have already said they’ll go against DeWine and will not arm teachers.

DeWine has also signed a dangerous concealed carry bill opposed by police organizations that allows people to carry a concealed handgun without a permit or training.

“Ohioans deserve to feel safe in their communities — starting with kids in schools,” said DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton. “This dangerous bill by Mike DeWine is just another way he’s making Ohio less safe. It’s time Ohio had a governor like Nan Whaley who will work with anyone to take on gun violence to keep families and kids safe — not make the problem worse like DeWine.”
