    Need some advice. I live in an apartment and it isn't the best of places but I have a roof. One of the buildings usually has cops for drugs, child abuse etc. My satellite dish has been vandalized twice. The second time I found the kids who did it and they paid for damages. Tonight someone put rice/beef stuff on the seat of my motorcycle. I hate, HATE vandals. I have my CHL and never OC around the apartment so as to not draw attention to myself. Now with someone messing with my bike I am really irritated. Do you think it would be wise to OC around the apartment as a deterrent/show of force?

    http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2923.126
    2923.126 Duties of licensed individual.
    (b) A landlord may not prohibit or restrict a tenant who is a licensee and who on or after the effective date of this amendment enters into a rental agreement with the landlord for the use of residential premises, and the tenant’s guest while the tenant is present, from lawfully carrying or possessing a handgun on those residential premises.
    Effective Date: 04-08-2004; 03-14-2007; 2008 SB184 09-09-2008

    I signed the agreement on 9/28/08 so I am covered under that law. It also doesn't make any distinction between OC and CC, only a licensed individual, which I am. The other thing is we are now on a month to month rental agreement type deal since we fulfilled the one year rental obligation. I look forward to the comments and thank you in advance.


    After cooling down and having some sense talked into me, I realize this to probably be a bad idea. I will be asking for a lot more trouble this way. This thread can be disregarded.

    I very much understand what you're saying. I live in a trailer park and recently had our truck tire slashed and have had things stolen from our yard. I am 18 years old and I own a gun and my step dad is a cop. I can only open carry and if I'm going out to get the mail or go out to my truck for a second I'll put my gun on my hip mostly because I have to. I can't see my step dad showing off his gun and from my understand many people do know he's a cop (from what I heard from someone who went to my school when we first moved in). I do understand what you're saying but I'm not sure it will be a great deterrent. But you do have the legal right to do it.

    Best I can say is to put a motion activated camera on the bike thats hidden so no one knows its there. At least you'll have video proof of who did it.

    Good luck though

    +1.

    Open carrying is a deterrent against crimes against your person and maybe even in your presence. A bunch of hoodlum kids probably won't be overly detered from messing with your bike, especially when you are not around, just because you strap a pistol on your hip.

    You'd have a much better shot with the cameras so you can find out who is doing it and then letting the cops take care of it. Some sort of alarm system might help as well.

    If you want a REAL deterrent, maybe you should chain an angry pitbul to your bike, or pay a shokotan ninja to stand in front of it, day and night. :celebrate

    Why should he give in to the punks? That's the same as condoning their behavior.

    That being said, I carry around my apartment complex and everyone knows it. It's amazing how polite they all are to me. Yes, even the gangbangers.

    While I do agree with ericfrompahrump, should you decide to not move and to OC as a deterrent action make sure that you have the training to back up what you are projecting and also that you are intimately familiar with the law in your area
    Freedom is a bit like sex, when your getting it you take it for granted, when you're not you want it bad, other people get mad at you for having it and others want to take it away from you so only they have it.
