I was asked to do a presentation on firearm laws impacting fairs during the OFMA’s yearly conference. The session had a good turnout. Standing room only. I’d say 95% of the crowd raised their hands when I asked who had their CHL.

We talked about 9.68, preemption, lawsuits and how to avoid them and what fair boards can and cannot legally do in regards to legally armed citizens at fairs. I only had @50 minutes so I crammed a bunch of info in and answered some questions.

There were quite a few that were interested in finding out how to change the rules (under SB 199 changes) so they can allow carry into fair buildings.

I’ve been asked to come back next year to speak again.

Great work! I hope they act on keeping that signage down all across Ohio. Maybe they should just toss the things away and not ever order more?
