Non-resident OC in Ohio

Open Carry is carrying a firearm unconcealed in Ohio. OC does not require a concealed handgun license, but the practice requires intimate knowledge of the law since there are places and situations where OC is prohibited but carrying concealed would be permitted. OC is also likely to attract attention. This forum is for discussion of OC, not for debating the pro's and con's or coordinating any type of protest events.

Non-resident OC in Ohio

Postby docachna » Mon Mar 21, 2016 9:22 pm

Had an interesting chat with a gun store/gun range operator down here today. He also teaches Tennessee CHL classes.

He has relatives in Dayton, and claims that "a state office" (Ohio AG ?) told him by phone that a non-Ohio resident, who had not been issued a concealed carry permit/license in any state, could not open carry in Ohio. I tried to explain to him that in Ohio, OC, since it is nowhere made illegal, is therefore legal, and that as long as the person was otherwise entitled to possess a handgun, they could OC in Ohio all day long (not in the car, prohibited places, etc., etc.). He seemed convinced of what he was told.

Any nuances to this that I'm missing ? :?

Nope.

He's full of excrement or he was given false information.

Press him for the name and phone number of the person that gave him that info.

Or to the Ohio Attorney General's Concealed Carry Laws pamphlet, page 14:

Open Carry
Ohio’s concealed carry laws do not regulate “open” carry of
firearms. If you openly carry, use caution. The open carry of firearms
is a legal activity in Ohio

As far as I know, Canadians can come down and walk around open carry. I wonder if they know that.

They can, and I know of one that knows he can, and does, OC when he visits.

Nice. You should invite him to an OC cracker barrel outing.

I don't know for sure, but I suspect he borrows one from a friend.

If the Canadian has no felonies in the US but does in his home country, does US law apply?
Unarmed people are vulnerable people, and criminal predators prey upon them.

Interesting scenario.

As long as they're in this country, I would say yes. The difficulty would be in determining if the foreign "felony" at issue would also constitute a felony under US law sufficient to give rise to a firearms prohibition.

Just my uninformed opinion on the topic, though.

That's usually the way that out-of-jurisdiction prior convictions are determined: Do the elements of the offense reasonably match?
