    library carry clatification

    i decided to start a new thread so as not to bog down a different one. is csrry at a county library NON posted. legal or illegal? it seems it would fall under preemption law however i want to be sure. i would be concealed in any case so as not to cause a stir in this particular case. this is important for me to clarify as i am frequently on foot and the library is a go to stop for me

    Sheesh, caleb, how many times does this question need to be answered???

    OHIO GOVERNMENT library: posted or not, concealed carry is illegal. It's a government building, got it??

    Federal buildings have their own rules, but I can pretty much guarantee that carry there is illegal.

    As YOU posted in another thread: "i read through that thing every day..seems theres always something to get hung up on..so library counts as "government building" so no carry...grr..."


    In response to my post, which said in part:

    "..."Off-limits" places are either statutory (like public buildings as well as some private property under many circumstances) or because of conspicuously posted signage (other private property).

    Statutory off-limits places are supposed to have signage, but because they don't doesn't make them any less off-limits.

    You need to read and understand (and should have already sought out) this publication from the Ohio Attorney General regarding Concealed Carry: http://tinyurl.com/ont3a26"

    From the AG's booklet that you apparently haven't read (page 10):

    Forbidden Carry Zones

    The law sets forth several places where your license does not allow you to carry a handgun. Under the law, you may not carry a concealed handgun into the following places:...

    "...Government facilities that are not used primarily as a shelter,restroom, parking facility for motor vehicles, or rest facility and are not a courthouse or a building or structure in which a courtroom is located"

    Another thread asking the same question(s) with the same answer(s). No point to merging, in stead locking it.
