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.
