After the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, guns are back in the news. We look at the six pending gun bills in the Ohio General Assembly and explore federal and state laws. 

For the first time in several years, there was a drop in the number of people getting or renewing concealed carry gun permits in Ohio last year. The state says new permits fell by nearly 40 percent last year to just under 60,000. About 50,000 other Ohioans renewed their concealed carry permit last year. Franklin County reported the most permits issued and renewed in 2014.
