    Question Newsletter/Information

    Hello, I just turned 18 a few months ago, and have just started open carrying. I have made myself familiar with the laws, and I feel comfortable carrying my S&W 66.

    I wanted to know if there is some kind of newsletter or notification I could get via email that would let me know when there is a rally or demonstration that is scheduled, because I would very much like to participate in order to help secure my rights.

    Thanks in advance!
    Willie

    Do you open carry a long gun or handgun? Are you an Ohio resident? If so, how did you obtain your handgun? OCing handguns at 18 in Ohio is LEGAL, but obtaining one is near impossible if you're an Ohio resident (or been one your entire life). Your state has laws requiring 21 year olds for private sale handgun trades.

    Luckily for me I'm a FL resident so I obtained my handgun at 18 legally. Therefore I can OC in your state tomorrow if I want to (I'm 19) without a permit. Transporting the firearms in cars in your state gets tricky though, but still doable.

    Willie, there are some sites you should look at:

    1) Buckeye Firearms Association
    2) Ohioans For Concealed Carry
    3) Ohio Open Carry

    The first two are the major players in the struggle to further improve gun rights in Ohio. Both have main sites plus forum boards. Number 3 above is just a small forum board but it is very specific to open carry issues.

    Willie,

    Don't expect OFCC (Ohioans for Concealed Carry) to save your rear end if you get charged with inducing panic or disorderly conduct. They will be glad to refer you to an attorney, who, from what I've seen, will not achieve the kind of victory that is needed.

    They talk big, but out of both sides of their mouth when discussing open carry.

    My best advice is know the legal risks and be prepared to deal with them.
