Employers can still ban guns in their workplaces. Their policies, however, may not be prepared to handle the new law. An employer’s policy, for example, might ban “unauthorized weapons” -- and an employee might think that because of the new law, he or she is now authorized to carry a gun to work.
Meanwhile, county sheriff’s offices in Ohio will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars collectively to prepare for the new law. County governments will be preparing to process applications and run background checks on Ohio citizens.
