I think I'm going to try and apply in a different county maybe first and then if I get denied I'll file to have the record sealed. You only have to wait a year to reapply if you appeal and lose right?
If you do apply in another county and get denied, and *don't* Appeal, you can re-apply immediately after you get the record sealed. So, there's that.
Ok thank you! I think thats the route I'm going to take then. I really don't want to deal with a court unless I absolutely have to, if I get denied then I'll file to have the record sealed. I'll keep you guys updated forsure. I'm thinking Portage county cause it's adjacent to me, the sheriff is pro 2A and they had only one denial in all of 2019 where Mahoning County if I remember correctly had the most denials in the state, if they didn't take number 1 in denials they were certainly in the top 10.
