Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.

NEO Open Carry was founded in 2012 to be the premier gun rights and second amendment advocates in Northeastern Ohio. We are here to preserve the right of the average citizen to carry a firearm.

We are particularly interested in "open carry," and most of this site will be dedicated to carrying a firearm openly in Northeastern Ohio, but that does not mean that we are not advocating for concealed carry and gun rights in general.

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” - Thomas Jefferson
