Possibly the law would have been easier to pass if more reporters visited states that already had right-to-carry laws:
Even as a person whose job is to follow the news, there was much I didn't know about Ohio's concealed carry law. It requires a person with a gun to use any means to ward off an attack before resorting to deadly force. . . . Then there are the rules about where you can't carry a concealed weapon. . . . The Ohio law says the gun must be hidden when you're in public, except if you plan to carry it on your body in the car - where it must be in plain sight. Other states have widely varying quirks in their concealed carry laws. The class made it clearer than ever: Owning a gun is a huge responsibility. . . . After thinking it over, I paid $45 and got the concealed carry license.
