The law on this will be changing on March 27th. The governor signed HB495 back in December and it takes effect in March.
Ohio law is not written very well, and can be confusing as a result.
One key change in HB495 is that a loaded magazine is no longer defined as being a loaded gun. The loaded magazine, of course, cannot be in the gun.
I guess the point I am trying to make is to read HB495 also, not just the current code.
