An Ohio Senate committee is scheduled to consider changes to gun bills relaxing some requirements for a concealed carry permit and letting hunters use silencers on their guns under certain conditions.
Senate President Keith Faber said several measures related to weapons will be added to a bill that he hopes to have up for a full Senate vote Thursday afternoon.
Faber said the GOP-controlled Senate is unlikely to vote on a measure that includes a self-defense proposal.
The hunting bill, which passed the House earlier this year, would let licensed hunters use the noise suppressors while hunting certain birds and other wild game, including squirrels, rabbits and white-tailed deer.
Another pending bill reduces from 12 hours to eight the training time to get a concealed weapons permit.
