    Question Airport carry, not airside

    Hey guys,

    Can you openly carry a long gun inside airports in Ohio?

    I know you cannot conceal carry as part of the permit law. But I cannot find anything against open carry.

    i.e. Would this:

    Be legal.

    Thanks,

    Can't answer for Ohio, however this is a better written article on that incident.

    The last time I was at an Ohio airport (Akron/Canton) they had "no guns" signs on the entrance doors. Wouldn't surprise me if most or all of the others do as well. But in the absence of a law against it (and I can't find one beyond the concealed carry prohibition) then it is presumptively legal, as long as it isn't posted.

    So an airport can post, and it carries the weight of law? Well - That's that then. They'll all post.

    Darn.

    Well you have to look at the climate at airports post 9/11. If someone walks into an airport armed most passengers will see that as a threat as will tsa. Hence the no firearms allowed signage.

    You are saying that the signs are due to the threat perceived by the sheeple and The Sheeple Agents? I don't think so.

    And if the change is allowed to stand, the battle is lost.

    FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown said keeping boxcutters off planes was an industry requirement, not a government order. She said the FAA allowed airline passengers to carry blades less than four inches long before Sept. 11. Government rules now prohibit such items

    Faa had allowed some items prior to 9-11 now with security ran by the federal government you can't carry on mouth wash..lol .let alone bring a hand gun into a airport terminal area openly. Now conceal it and chances are real good tsa misses it.

    You have a lot to learn about making blanket, unsupported statements. Federal law only prohibits gun carriers from taking their weapons into a security screening area or beyond.

    There are different laws in different states - there is no one size fits all.
