The only bad thing added to Ohio's gun laws by this bill. It's only a matter of time before we start reading stories about Ohio gun owners being arrested for this. I'm willing to bet 90% of Ohio gun owners have no idea this goes into effect tomorrow.Unloaded Defined
An unloaded firearm is defined as having no ammunition in the firearm and no ammunition loaded into a magazine or speed loader that may be used with the firearm in question and that is located anywhere within the vehicle in question, without regard to where ammunition otherwise is located within the vehicle. What this means is donít have any magazines or speed loaders loaded in the vehicle
Think of all the gun owners that load magazines at home before they go to the range.
Unfortunately, Ohio news media are using an AP news article which incorrectly states that "plain sight" is going away tomorrow.
Note that "plain sight" is still in effect only for closed but unlocked gun cases.
1. In a holster on your person.
2. In a locked case.
3. In a closed but unlocked case which must be in "plain sight". The case must have a closing mechanism like a zipper or clasp.
4. In a locked glove compartment.
As of midnight tonight, all the above still applies except the glove compartment no longer needs to be locked. In addition, unlocked vehicle consoles also become a legal place to carry your loaded handgun.
There is no way for an unlicensed individual to legally carry a loaded handgun in Ohio in a vehicle.
Ohio is going in the RIGHT direction and California is going in the LEFT direction.
Whoa...what happened to the usual liberal minds in the Legislature? Did a bunch of them miss a meeting?

Now if the Supreme Court of Ohio would get off its bureaucratic backside and rule on the Ohioans for Concealed Carry vs Village of Clyde!
It seems the Village of Clyde (other municipalities have jumped on their bandwagon) posted their park as a no-carry zone. Ohioans for Concealed Carry took them to task (and court) over this, they won, they won again, it was appealed both times, it's been argued before the SCOH and we're waiting for SCOH to issue a decision:
Is State law a "general" law or can local override it?
The State law contains a pre-emption statute that supposedly prevents subordinate jurisdictions from posting. Village of Clyde et. al. are challenging this as it violates self rule.
Until SCOH decides, we're a bit up in the air on the subject.

Now, if we could only get Ohio and Pennsylvania to play nice and recognize each others permits. It sure would make life easier for everyone who lives near the state lines.

Down by me in S.W. Ohio a few parks that were posted have been "unposted"...That was huge to me....that local gov'ts have taken the law to heart and honored it. Cuz for a while there they were not even after the "home rule" aspect was written into the law.
This is mine. That is yours.
Lets keep it that way.
