Obetz 2923.123 sign

Post by Mike6789 »

Sorry if this is not the right place, but I was attending a birthday party at the Obetz Community center, and noticed the 2923.123 sign, which says you cannot carry into a courthouse. I asked the employee there, if there was some sort of courthouse attached, she said no, it's just the community center.

Would the community center fall under a "government building" for restricting concealed carry (or open), or would this be considered a public building. Also, would this sign be unenforceable seeing as there is no courthouse inside the building?

Address for the building is 1650 Obetz Ave, Obetz, OH 43207

In short, it's a government building. Carry is prohibited there by the ORC, even if not by the section listed on the sign. Cities, counties, townships, etc. can opt to allow carry, but that's a rarity.

The Ohio House is working on a law to sorta kinda fix that, but don't hold your breath waiting for them to craft something too useful.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!
