    Ohio laws

    I'm a PA resident heading to OH for a couple of days. Any laws regarding OC spray, or even knives I should be aware of. Nice to have reciprocity with, say, Alaska, but Ohio would certainly be more convenient.

    Sorry, I don't know the answer to your specific question. But for future reference, you can get a FL or UT non-res permit that is recognized by Ohio.

    I don't think you need a permit to carry in Alaska,but if you do travel to other states that do not recognize your permit but will recognize a non resident florida or utah then you might consider that option,my Texas license covers most states I will ever travel to,and hopefully in the future will get more.

    In Ohio you can open carry a firearm without a license (you can NOT do this in a car without a license).

    There are no state restrictions on OC. Automatic knives are a big no-no. Assisted openers, regular folders, no issues at all.

    You can't conceal carry a knife, it's viewed as intent to use as a weapon. However, a knife that can be seen is legal, as it's viewed with the intent to use as a tool.

    You can open carry, but I don't recommend it. It will cost you a lot more than you bargained for.

    Knives are a weird topic, you can carry a typical folder in your pocket and be fine, you also can carry your Rambo survival on your belt and be fine with it. Hide the Rambo, and you are in violation.

    Sixto, do assisted-open knives count as a 'typical folder' that can be in a pocket?
