Wright-Patterson employees can't bring handguns to work

Workers at the states’s largest single-site employer, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, won’t be allowed to bring their handguns to work even though a new state law says employees with concealed-carry permits can keep their guns in locked cars on company property.

“Wright-Patterson AFB is an exclusive federal jurisdiction and therefore CCW holders are not authorized to carry privately owned weapons on base,” said Daryl Mayer, media operations sections chief at the base, which employs about 27,000 people.

Other federal employers, such as the U.S. Postal Service, also are exempt from a state law that drew deep objections from business leaders.

In the legislation, the Ohio General Assembly in December expanded the CCW law to overrule private employer’s “no-guns” policies. The law, which takes effect March 21, does not require businesses to let employees bring guns inside their buildings.
