Ohio Governor John Kasich just signed a bill that makes concealed carry permit records completely private. Previous versions of the law kept records private, but allowed journalists access to the lists.
Newspapers and journalists in Ohio are fighting for transparency of records and prior to Gov. Kasich's signing of the bill, they urged him to veto it.
In 2014, Ohio sheriffs issued 110,212 concealed carry handgun licenses with approximately half being new licenses and the other half renewals.
