    Clyde is 8 miles away from Fremont. Both share the same county court system. If Fremont doesn't know about OFCC v. Clyde and State v. City of Cleveland they are in deep doodoo.

    I did a very simple inquiry of the Fremont City police. I spoke to officer Bush.
    I posed a simple question. Was it legal to open carry in Ohio? His response was yes it was legal.
    So the next question was - So if someone was walking down the street with a gun in a holster minding their own business they will not be bothered? His response was he shouldn't be. But, if we get a call/complaint they (police) will investigate.
    Last question. If they get a complaint how is it handled? The response was it all depends.

    I would be sending a notice to the police chief as to what the law is and that you will be exercising your right to open carry. But, don't send that notice if you don't have a clue as to what is should contain. You are not looking for a fight.

    I was debating on calling the depts of areas i planned to oc in. I just hear some members say not to bother calling them because they will basicly tell you that you can not oc. Anyways thanks for going threw the trouble of calling fremont for me i will be calling a few others to see what their procedures are.

    Do NOT get into a debate. Just ask simple questions.

    I just happened to pass through Fremont on my way to Port Clinton this past weekend. I stopped in at the local super mega grocery store and was there for about 2 hours and am happy to report no issues.

    It's not 'their procedures' you want to find out. You want to find out their interpretation of the law.

    That's why COL recommends just asking simple questions. You need to know what the laws are BEFORE you go around OC'ing and BEFORE you call a law enforcement agency.

    You need to know when they are giving you a 'wrong' answer.

    If you called and they said "Well, OC is legal in Ohio, but we don't allow OC in our town.", then YOU need to know that is wrong, and why.

    Etcetera, so on and so forth.

    Have fun!

    I am very fimilar with the carry laws and understand what to say and what not to say to LE if confronted. I was only wondering if anyone has had any issues in the fremont area. I just do not like being thrown off guard, I also carry audio recorders in truck and on person just in case.

    The first thing when I moved to oak harbor was inform the OHPD that I open carry a springfield xd9,i haven't once been bothered. When I first purchased my gun a month before moving here I called the lucas county sheriffs office and confirmed that it was legal to Oct and I wasn't bothered doesn't hurt I know quite a few tpd detectives Lol. I enjoy open carrying I mainly do it here in oak harbor just in case a critter tries attacking me. Just inform the police department give em your name address and number you should be ok.
