    Age to open carry 18?

    The site says the age to open carry is 18 in Ohio but I see Ohio law says its illegal for someone under 21 to posess a firearm. I'm from Michigan (18 years old) and I would like to bring my gun with me when I travel to Ohio but I don't want to break any laws.

    You must be 21 to own a handgun in Ohio. Exceptions provided in the ORC.

    2923.211 Underage purchase of firearm or handgun.

    (A) No person under eighteen years of age shall purchase or attempt to purchase a firearm.

    (B) No person under twenty-one years of age shall purchase or attempt to purchase a handgun, provided that this division does not apply to the purchase or attempted purchase of a handgun by a person eighteen years of age or older and under twenty-one years of age if either of the following apply:

    (1) The person is a law enforcement officer who is properly appointed or employed as a law enforcement officer and has received firearms training approved by the Ohio peace officer training council or equivalent firearms training.

    (2) The person is an active or reserve member of the armed services of the United States or the Ohio national guard, or was honorably discharged from military service in the active or reserve armed services of the United States or the Ohio national guard, and the person has received firearms training from the armed services or the national guard or equivalent firearms training.

    (C) Whoever violates division (A) of this section is guilty of underage purchase of a firearm, a delinquent act that would be a felony of the fourth degree if it could be committed by an adult. Whoever violates division (B) of this section is guilty of underage purchase of a handgun, a misdemeanor of the second degree.

    Effective Date: 01-01-2002; 2008 HB450 04-07-2009

    Go back to The MAPS Application at The HOME PAGE of this Website, and you will see that Open Carry at 18 is pretty Common in MUCH of The Country.
