Hello, my Ohio brothers/sisters!

I'm a Michigan resident, with Michigan CPL (concealed license). I'm an active OC'er in Michigan.

I've looked around your forum a little and need some help. May I OC in Ohio? If so, what are the zones I can't OC into?

Thank you for all your help!

Open carry in Ohio is constitutional. Not going into detail, so, if you see a posted sign don't patronize and don't go into government buildings. Parks and public lands are OK....
