    There are NO laws in Ohio about Open Carry, Laws are for restricting, not allowing........

    There are, however many laws about transporting firearms in vehicles in OH. Basically, no loaded long guns (loaded includes ANY loaded magazines for the long gun ANYWHERE in vehicle)

    Also, If you do not have a valid CC permit/license, the same rules (above) apply to pistols/handguns ......

    I realize that laws dont necessarily 'allow' but they do 'restrict'...hence my question...maybe the wording of my question was difficult...am i NOT allowed to carry at Hara Arena? Inside or outside?

    As was noted previously, to the best of my knowledge, there are NOT any laws specifically restricting open carry.

    Any particular venue MAY be a CPZ by virtue of:

    1. Being a statutory CPZ, ie. government building, serves liquor by the drink, etc.
    2. Being clearly posted as a CPZ.

    Around here, NONE of the grocery stores I've been to has been posted. None of the non-liquor serving fast food restaurants are. Few standalone businesses are.

    The deli on the end of my block doesn't serve liquor, but is posted. One or two office buildings are posted. One was posted and DE-posted. Most of the malls are, but leaving the gun in your glove box is civil trespass, and only if they see it, unlikely unless you're waving it around. You must leave if asked.

    When stopped by LEO, you need to inform them you are carrying.

    Only with permission of the Clergy.

    There is restaurant carry as long as they don't serve alcohol. AKA, Class D restriction.

    The Church carry for a wedding is a greyish area....... If the family is paying to have the wedding at a church, technically, they would be the ones to ban or allow weapons..... the building itself is not a church unless an actual service is going on (like a regularly scheduled Sunday Service).

    A private wedding is a rental of the building, not a church service. (Like I said, this is a grey area... IANAL)

    Personally, if what I was wearing would conceal well.... I would carry and keep my mouth shut.......
