    Does Ohio follow federal law or is it more strict pertaining to age & possession

    It's early and my brain is still foggy but I'm discussing gun possession with my 16 year old son.

    Any places in Ohio I can OC but not CC legally

    I used to be up on the laws for many years but burnt out so I need to catch up so I was wondering if there are places I can open carry legally but not legally conceal carry. Where does my "right" trump my "privilege" ?

    Any OC'ers from Newark on these forums?

    I used to post a lot on gun forums & was wondering if there are any open or concealed carry people in Newark who use these forums. I've seen one guy OC'ing but didn't get a chance to speak to him.
