No, but you can't "use or carry" your guns while under the influence. If you don't do stupid things you won't have to pay the stupid tax like this guy.
The guy in this piece was staggering drunk and started messing with his loaded shotgun, to the point his wife was concerned so she called the cops. After cops arrive, she lets them in, and he comes into the room where the police are, carrying the (now unloaded) shotgun. Frankly, he's probably lucky he's alive.
The Ohio law against using or carrying while under the influence does not have an exception for being in your own home, which is essentially the basis for the suit.

They drive somewhere, lawfully carrying a loaded handgun. Then they have some drinks. Then they get pulled over for OVI on the way home. The officer finds the loaded handgun in the vehicle. Instant felony.
I don't mind if people want to drink. Stupidity annoys me.

Before you know it cops will be arresting people for not brushing their teeth or eating their vegetables. I figure he should have the right to be foolish in his own home.
