Ohio’s year-old law that keeps the public from examining concealed gun permits was debated by 17 law enforcement officials, civic activists, journalists and private citizens in the first of a series of Freedom of Information Roundtables sponsored by local newspapers and the Associated Press Managing Editors. The law does give records access and one newspaper has published a list of local gun owners. The non-gun owning citizens wanted the right to know who had permits, owners said publishing names wouldn’t make anyone safer, and police said they were more concerned about people with guns and no permit.
