OHIO CHL BACKGROUND CHECK

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.

OHIO CHL BACKGROUND CHECK

Postby Greenbean » Thu Jul 26, 2018 11:12 pm

I have a criminal background, took my 8hr required CHL course and did my background check for licensing but i am unsure if I will be eligible because I’ve been delayed before at a local gun show.

My criminal record looks like this:
Disorderly Conduct 2917-11-ORCN (5-13-2014)
Public Indecency 2907-09A ORCN (10-17-16)
& a Minor Misdemeanor Marijuana ticket in 2017

Do I No longer have gun ownership rights and am I still eligible for a Ohio CHL?

None of the offenses you list would disqualify you from getting your Ohio CHL.

The requirements for the license are at http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2923.125 if you want to review them.

The only questionable one I see is what did the Disorderly Conduct stem from? Was it a DV pled down to a DC? If so, that can still be a disqualifier. But if you have only been delayed, then I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Disorderly Conduct was a Minor Misdemeanor as well. Long story short My neighbors wanted me to take my dog inside because she was a Pitbull, and she didn’t feel comfortable walking her dog while a Pitbull was near. My dog was leashed and on my property. She called police, Cop then drew gun on and demanded that I take my dog in the house which I did. Once I came back outside he asked for my social and name, I simply replied “ am I being detained” he didn’t like the fact that I answered his question with my own question and told me I was under arrest for being a “smartass” went to court and was charged with disorderly Conduct.

THAnks guys, just ordered a Kimber Pro Carry II and just hoping that when it ships to my FFL that I am able to continue the transaction. Was just worried due to being delayed at my local gunshow. I can tell you that I am a “Jr” me and my father has the same name and I beleive he had a felony, and some DV’s years ago. If that effects my background check , who knows?! Just couldn’t get over why I was even delayed in the first place with no DV’s, No felonies, No warrants, and one minor misdemeanor weed ticket over a year ago.

That is likely why you've been delayed before. They were just making sure you weren't the one with a felony.
