New law questions answered

We've been getting a lot of questions about the law passed this week. See the post below for the full law and a larger list, but here are a few times to note. Remember, none of these go into effect until the gov. signs the law!
  • Carrying in a car’s glove box or console, even unlocked, is now legal.
  • All CHL holders records are private, they may only be obtained via a written media request to view the info of someone, one at a time.
  • The application form was changed to reflect the new law
  • All gov’t buildings, day-cares and schools are now required to post the anti-CHL sign, eliminating the need for a CHL-holder to “decide” if it’s legal to carry there or not.
  • It’s OK to carry into a park restroom, gov’t or non-gov’t parking facility, gov’t shelter (non-buliding), or rest-facility as long as it’s not attached to a courthouse.
*NOTE - this is not legal advice. It's your job to check out the law yourself and understand how it applies to you.

  • Allows lawful concealed carry in your home without a Concealed Handgun License (CHL)
  • Clarifies an unloaded firearm as one with no ammunition in the firearm or in magazines or speedloaders, regardless of where else ammunition is stored
  • Allows lawful Concealed Carry in retail establishments with a class D6/D8 liquor license (package sales only, not bars/restaurants)
  • Allows pick up/drop off by CHL holders in school safety zones
  • Provides for mandatory legal fees for gun owners who require court orders to have firearms returned to them.
  • Allows lawful Concealed Carry in state owned shelters, restrooms and parking garages.
  • Decriminalizes Concealed Carry in privately owned parking garages.
  • Prohibits landlords from prohibiting tenants from owning/carrying firearms
  • Allows CHL holders to carry firearm in unlocked glove compartment or center console.
  • Expunged/Sealed records are no longer considered when applying for a CHL.

A great day for firearms rights in Ohio!

Boy finds gun near local daycare

Odds are, this gun came from a bad dude who decided to ditch it. If it was from a legit gun owner, it's sad to see such irresponsibility.

It's your responsibility as a gun owner to lock up your guns - take it seriously.
