    All right this is my first post so bear with me.

    Im a 21 year old college student who works part time at a local carry out. As the winter time approaches we only have one person working the night shift(5-10) and closing the store.

    The store also deals in firearms and ammo and we were broken into over labor day weekend and had several guns stolen.

    I would like to open carry. I cleared it with the owners and they have no problem with it. Am I good to go or is there anything else I need to be aware of?

    If you included your state that would help, or you could post this in your state forums. Laws and such vary state to state, so without you being more specific you could wind up with misinformation.

    A local carry out as in a liquer store? The store also deals in firearms & ammo? Something doesn't make sense here.

    First of all everything is closed container. ORC states that as long as it is closed container then the sale, trade, or purchasingof unloaded firemarms is not prohibited. (2923.12.1) And they donthave a Dliquor license(for consumption @ the location) but rather a C liquor license (for sale but must be consumed elsewhere). Owners also have a FFL license and therefore are considered an exhibitor, trader, seller, or purchaser.

    You might be better off asking in the Ohio forum. The locals always have a better grasp of trends in your area with Open Carry.

    Yes you can carry there. Why would you think that you couldn't? They don't have a license for consumption in the building, so it is ok. They wouldn't have been granted licenses for alcohol and weapons on the same premises if it were a problem. What I really want to know is, where the heck is this store at?

    I dunno how Ohio is, but my understanding of Va is that, as long as my employer explicitly tells me I can, I can CC without a permit at his business. IDK if this is true, but I did it for 4 years closing the 2PM-10PM shift at a gas station that didn't have a cash register. My shirt pocket had anywhere from $55 at the start of the shift in small bill "change" to $250+ anywhere in the shift, and my boss permitted me to carry a handgun concealed, with a "permission slip" from him written out, tucked away in a desk drawer in the office, when I pointed out to him that I was "responsible for all monies in my control" during the shift, and at any time during the shift I may be in possession of a weeks wages or more.

    We were never robbed during the time I was employed there, but I did, on 2 occasions, have to rely on my handgun to keep me safe from "customers" around closing time.

    While I don't condone or endorse unlawful behavior, I'd say that if you feel that your life may at some point be in danger at your current job, and you can't find employment somewhere else, take WHATEVER means you feel are necessary to guarantee your drawing of unassisted breath tomorrow, tonight.

    I'd rather be judged by 12 for defending my life than carried by 6 for not doing it. Spending 10-15yrs in prison is much better than dying and having your killers go unpunished.

    You sell guns AND liquor?

    I wanna patronize your establishment.

    Whereabouts in Ohio? Inquiring minds want to know.

    there is a shop like that here in MO called One Stop Boat & Guns. half of the building is your typical convenience store and the other half is, you guessed it, boats and guns and ammo.

    talk about Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms!

    anyway, here in MO a property/business owner can carry as he/she sees fit on said property with no permit/license needed. also a designee/guest of said owner may also carry with with the owners permission. it's like having the proverbial shotgun behind the bar.

    but as always, check your local laws as they may vary.

    I believe there are a grand total of 2 stores in Texas that sell both liquor and guns in the same establishment. One of them in in Shulenburg, the other, I don't remember at the moment...

    As for carrying there.... Need to ask some Ohio folks! Can't really help you there, but I would imagine with the owners permission I don't see how it would be a problem!
