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.

Anthony was superb. I gave him a list of things I wanted out of my trial and he delivered.
I truly want to take the time to say what an amazing person Attorney VanNoy is.
