COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Gov. John Kasich Monday signed a bill which could allow Ohioans to carry concealed firearms in places like daycare centers, public areas of airports and school safety zones.

Senate Bill 199 lifts the current ban on carrying concealed weapons in those locations, according to the Toledo Blade. 

The bill gives colleges and universities the authority to allow weapons on their campuses. And privately-owned businesses can still issue bans in their facilities.

Weapons will still also be banned in courthouses and police stations.

The bill will also allow Ohioans to keep their guns in cars, which are private property, regardless of the location of the vehicle.

The bill was among a total of 17 signed by Kasich Monday. Those include Senate Bill 331, which will prohibit cities from raising the minimum wage higher than what's provided under state law.
