Ohio CCW law has been updated
Just a heads up to folks that travel to Ohio and may not be aware of it but today, Sept. 8th, The laws in Ohio have slightly changed (for the better).
I don't have a link to the exact site, & I really do not want to misquote or give bad info, but the A.G. of Ohio werbsite would be the person to search to get specific details about this change.
Everything you may have been doing, assuming it was correct and legal, is the same only new abilities have been added.:danceban:
It's still not perfect but it has improved since it's inception .
Here is a basic run down of changes
-Permit holders can now keep a gun hidden in a car as long as they're carrying it in a secure holster. The law previously required the gun to be in plain sight.
-Permit holders may bring a gun onto school grounds as long as they are in a car picking up or dropping off a child.
-Landlords no longer can prohibit licensed concealed weapons permit holders from having their weapons in apartments.
-Allows people without a license to carry concealed weapons in their homes as long as they aren't engaged in illegal activity.
-Decreases the penalty for failure to notify a police officer of one's permit status when stopped if the officer already received the information through a license plate check.
-Allows holders of valid liquor licenses who are also concealed weapons permit holders to carry a hidden gun on their premises.
-Includes the presumption that a resident who hurts or kills an intruder acted in self defense or in defense of another if the intruder has entered unlawfully or without permission.
I don't see one change that I disagree with, this should make life a little easier for the citizen and L.E. alike. :comeandgetsome:
