Dayton Gun Charge Attorney

The gun laws in Ohio have changed a lot in the past couple of years, and as experienced Dayton gun charge attorneys, we’ve seen many clients who’ve been wrongly incarcerated for having a gun on them that they legally had the right to carry. That being said, let’s take a look at the current gun laws in Ohio. 

What Are the New Gun Laws in Ohio for 2022?

Former Attorney General of Ohio and current Governor, Mike Dewine, has recently made it super easy for anyone wanting to attain a weapon to do so. This is because of the fact that in mid-March of this year, he made the decision to sign into law the right for citizens to have a concealed weapon on their person and/or in their vehicles with or without the proper training, background checks, or permitting provisions, according to the Ohio Capital-Journal

Even after getting polarized responses from the public about the Stand Your Ground Bill that he signed in January of 2019 (SB175, as reported by the Statehouse News Bureau), Dewine moved forward with putting his signature on this new bill this past Spring, signing it into law.

What this did was basically take the right to bear arms in the State of Ohio to the next level. And, as experienced Dayton gun charge attorneys, we’ve seen numerous clients who have been arrested and charged wrongfully for exercising their right to have a concealed weapon. 

What Would Disqualify Someone From Carrying a Gun in Ohio?

With the newer and now much looser gun laws in Ohio, run-ins with law enforcement by citizens who are in possession of a concealed firearm should go a lot differently now. 

For example, if someone is stopped by the police on the highway, they are not even required to have their Concealed Handgun License (CHL) on them if they happen to have a weapon in their glove compartment. They just need to let the police officer know that they do have a gun in the car if and when the police officer asks. The law is very loose, but you still can’t carry a gun inside of a school, inside of businesses that don’t allow guns on their premises, or in the courthouse. 

There are also a few other things that would disqualify you from carrying a concealed weapon, such as if you are a convicted felon. Other disqualifying factors in Ohio could be drug offenses, violent misdemeanors, negligent assault, or an effort to commit any of these crimes.
