A Decade Of Conceal Carry In The Buckeye State Ten years ago, the right to keep arms concealed on your person became law in Ohio. Critics then worried that "Wild West" style mayhem would erupt, leading to more gun-related violence and deaths. Backers countered that the law would discourage attackers and curb violence. Flash-forward to 2014, and many of the same claims are being hurled across the table. Who's right? And how has conceal carry changed life in Ohio?
