Ohio's Firearm Laws and Travel Issues

Gun and Flag  Below is a summary of Ohio's firearm laws and travel considerations.   Those  are:

 -Standard Firearms Ownership:  unrestricted, no permit or license required.

-Semi-auto gun/high capacity magazines: semi-autos w/over 31 shot mag prohibited.

-Machine gun ownership:  safe storage required and compliance with federal law (see prior issue on NFA Gun Trusts).

-Firearm Law Uniformity:  preemption law, most firearm issues regulated exclusively by state law;  local weapons bans and carry restrictions are unenforceable.

-Right to Self Defense:  NRA-model castle doctrine, stand your ground in vehicle only and in home.

-Open Carry:  unrestricted under state law.

-Concealed Carry:  licenses granted to residents on a shall issue basis;  reciprocity available for permits issued by certain other states.

-Vehicle Carry by Non-Permittees:  firearms must be unloaded, the weapons must be in plain view with actions open or enclosed in cases.

-State Parks:  concealed handgun carry by recognized licensees in outdoor areas permitted.

-Restaurants Serving Alcohol:  permittees may carry while eating in dining area and cannot consume alcohol.

-Duty to Notify Law Enforcement Officer:  immediately upon official contact.

-Vehicle Gun Possession at Colleges:  lawful for permittees, but preempted policies exist.
