A couple of less well known requirements:Leaving Georgia in a couple weeks going to Michigan. While driving through Ohio not sure what laws are. Any help here appreciated. Thanks
JTN is exactly correct, as the gun cannot be "ready at hand'. I had to practice this prior the the CCW years. I used to keep the cased and unloaded gun locked in the trunk, and the ammo in the glove box.Make sure your gun and ammo are in separate compartments, with one of them being required to leave the car (trunk if possible, or very very rear of an SUV or van), and inaccessible. As said, do not even have a loaded magazine in your car, Ohio has in its law that loaded magazine=loaded gun even if they are locked far away from each other. If you have a permit recognized by Ohio, forget what I said and carry as normal but avoid the CPZ.
The turnpike restrooms are now preempted and you can carry into them. I'm not sure about the large indoor rest stops. I THINK they are too.As a bit of a sidenote, I found when driving through most of Ohio that all of the state rest stops (especially on the turnpike) had giant no-firearms signs.
I don't believe that there is any requirement to store ammo in a separate compartment in Ohio.Make sure your gun and ammo are in separate compartments, with one of them being required to leave the car (trunk if possible, or very very rear of an SUV or van), and inaccessible.
Not sure if it is law or not, but that is how I was taught and always thought it made since.I don't believe that there is any requirement to store ammo in a separate compartment in Ohio.
For the OP, I have added what I believe are the relevant sections from the Ohio Revised Code. IANAL, so don't take my word for it.
