One of my biggest issues is the change of this one. Yes, they removed the statutory prohibition, however, they made it if they post the parking lot it is now a felony. Prior to this, I could gladly go into any daycare parking lot and be safe as long as I didn't take the firearm in the building. Unfortunately it says "posted land or premise" which to me depending on the wording one places on their front door, could include the entire land, at which point it is now an F4 violation for the firearm being loaded in the vehicle. HUGE step backwards on that one.
I'm wondering how this is reconciled with parking lots only being a civil problem. Does one take precedent over the other?
I would say since this is AFTER the other section this one now takes precedence for at least daycare places.
This brings up more curiosity along the lines of "What were they thinking?". The new 2923.1210 prevents employers from enacting or enforcing policies that prohibit employees with concealed carry licenses from storing firearms in their vehicles. However, the newly revised 2923.126 still has the old "(C)(1) Nothing in this section shall negate or restrict a rule, policy, or practice of a private employer that is not a private college, university, or other institution of higher education concerning or prohibiting the presence of firearms on the private employer's premises or property, including motor vehicles owned by the private employer." 2923.216 is before 2923.1210. Now I know 2923.16 says "Nothing in this section shall negate or restrict", meaning nothing in 2923.16 can do that, but you really have to wonder how the numbskulls in Columbus got elected to office and were entrusted to govern the state.
