John Glenn International?

Postby dustymedic » Mon Sep 04, 2017 7:47 pm

Tomorrow night i'm picking up a friend at John Glenn International ( Port Columbus) very late. I plan om sitting in the cell phone lot and meeting him at the Arrivals Pick ups curbside. Should I have any problems if i don't actually go into the terminal building itself? I have to work EARLY the next day and if I short cut through some of the more colorful parts of C-Bus and can shave close to a half hour off my drive. should I stick my pistol in my lock box when I pull off the cell lot and retrieve it as I leave Port Authority property?

No trouble at all. I've carried into the terminal.
This is one of the few times it's ok to call ahead for permission. My experience involved a late night pickup as well. In order to be ABsolutely certain it was legal as I believed it to be I called the previous day and asked the port columbus police. After a quick " hang on let me check" I was told as long as I didn't pass into the secure area past tsa it was legal and not an issue. I even got the phone operators agent # when I asked for her name. Just in case I needed to say so in so said I could.
Been legal since march? I think

I agree with someguy, the way I understand the law you should be fine in the cell phone lot or even in the terminal up to the secure area.

That's cool - I'm glad to hear they're not playing the "yeah but we're also a government facility" card.
Never ask if you can carry at a non-posted place, but always ask why you cannot at one that is!
Just because they offer call ahead seating doesn't mean you call ahead for carry permission.

Sorry to revive an old post but I visited CMH a couple of weeks and, when traveling through the lower level walkway from the parking garage into the terminal, I exited the elevators and took a short walk (inside) before I reached the automated doors allowing entrance into the terminal area. After we went through my son-in-law asked (discretely) if I was legal. I wondered, at the time, why he would suddenly ask but i went on my way.

About a week later we returned and traversed the same route... this time I actually LOOKED for any "notifications" on or around the doorway. Sure enough, there was a sticker indicating that guns were prohibited in the terminal. I didn't grab a picture of it (and maybe I should have but I didnt want "proof that I had seen it" actually on my person if I was asked :-) ). I was still confident (because of this board) that I was legal but didnt want Barney Fife messing with my evening plans with my granddaughter.

I just called the Airport Police as I need to drop my wife off early tomorrow morning. She said that with the new law it is okay to carry in the terminal but you can't cross the TSA lines. The caveat though for me is she did mention that the signs are still up on the entrance ways in making it uncertain to me. Sheesh!
