On June 13th of 2022, the Hoosier State made it legal for you to carry a gun on your person or in your car, even if you don’t have a permit. The Attorney General for Ohio, Dave Yost, still made it a point to recommend that citizens of this state go out and get firearms training, even though it’s not legally required that they do so here anymore.
With all the new gun laws, citizens who are now carrying a concealed weapon have to be doing something specifically wrong in order to be arrested. For example, you should know that you can’t carry a gun on school grounds, that you can’t have one if you are being indicted, or if you have previous felony convictions and/or unrestored firearm rights. Any of these circumstances can lead to unlawful possession of a weapon charges.
It’s against the law for you to carry your concealed weapon into any establishment that serves alcohol. Not only is it illegal to bring it into a restaurant or bar, but if you become intoxicated, it is also unlawful for you to have it on your person.
It’s also a good idea to do a thorough inspection of any weapon that you plan on carrying concealed, because if it’s later found out that the serial numbers have been scratched off and you knew about it, you can be arrested and charged.
Gun charges and penalties vary in Ohio based on the specific allegations against you. Generally, penalties might include:
A criminal record also has other implications on your personal and professional life.
