Like every state, Ohio has laws that regulate guns and similar weapons.
While Ohio has fewer gun restrictions than most states, there are serious consequences for those who are convicted of violations of weapon laws. If you are arrested and are charged with a weapon offense, it is imperative that you seek assistance from a skilled criminal defense lawyer who thoroughly understands the weapon laws in our state.
If you have been accused of a gun offense in Ohio, you should not delay in calling the experienced defense attorneys at The VanNoy Firm in Dayton. We have defended against many types of weapons charges, so please call today to discuss your specific case.
Ohio allows almost every adult to purchase and openly carry most firearms. You do have to obtain a license if you want to carry a concealed firearm on your person or in your vehicle. In order to obtain this license, you must provide certain information and undergo a criminal background check. Anyone carrying a concealed weapon must announce that fact if they are stopped by law enforcement officers. If you do not have the proper license to concealed carry, however, the police can place you under arrest, and you can be charged with unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon, which can be a misdemeanor or a serious felony depending on the circumstances.
Not everyone can purchase and/or openly carry a weapon anywhere in the state of Ohio. The laws set out specific restrictions regarding firearms, including the following:
In addition to the above restrictions, almost everyone is prohibited by law from possessing the following weapons:
The penalties for weapons violations will vary depending on the type of offense, whether you have had prior convictions, and whether other criminal allegations accompany the weapon charges. One example of a serious penalty is unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, which is a third-degree felony with a possible sentence of up to five years imprisonment and up to a $10,000 fine.
In addition to the above court-ordered penalties, a criminal conviction can impact your professional and educational opportunities, your social relationships, where you live, and more. If you have been charged with any type of weapons offense in Ohio, you should call the highly skilled criminal defense attorneys at The VanNoy Firm as soon as possible. We can help minimize the consequences you face, so please contact us today for help.

I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case. From the first time I met with my team to our last interaction, I always felt like I wasn't a number or a case, I was a person. The whole team was professional, responsive to my calls and concerns, and fought for the outcome I deserved. They even sent me an Ele cupcake for my birthday. I recommend this firm to everyone I know and will return if I ever need services in the future!
I am giving this firm a five-star rating for two reasons. First is the professional way in which I was treated. Every person I spoke with at this firm was professional and extremely courteous. I felt as though I was being treated as a natural person and NOT just a client. In many professional settings, clients are treated as such clients. Therefore they are held at arm's length. This gives off the impression a client is just a number, and there is a coldness and sterility to the service. I was NOT treated in this manner at the Vannoy Firm.…
Anthony VanNoy is an absolutely top-notch attorney. From start to finish, my case was handled with empathy, efficiency, and utter professionalism. The outcome was better than I'd dared to hope for and I cannot recommend him or his firm highly enough.
I first want to thank the staff and the company itself I work with Brittany and Patricia and it was so smooth on my end they took care of everything. They had no problem working with me even when I live the incident happened in a different state. Very very professional in my eyes and my family’s.
Keara Dever took the initiative to advocate for me in my very difficult situation. When no one else would listen to me, she did. She was very supportive and understanding and I am very appreciative for her services. She went above and beyond what I would have ever expected. Thank you so much Mrs. Dever. And by the way, she is AWESOME!!! Carl. M
