    My wife and I just got back from a trip through that part of the world and I noticed there weren't any "no guns" signs on the doors at the rest stops on the Ohio Turnpike. I noticed them everywhere about a year or so ago.

    Y'all get a law changed or something up there?

    I don't know the specifics at the rest area but we have people working full time to get many of the restrictions lifted when it comes to CCing.

    :)

    Good job for y'all. (insert thumb-up here) I was surprised to not see any this time. I wasn't carrying, but did think to look for the signs after last time.

    You're free to carry there now. Some of the signs stayed up for a while, and some probably still are.

    You still can't carry in Gov buildings, but Gov parking lots, restrooms, and shelters are good to go now.
    Private posted parking lots have been switched from Criminal trespassing to a Civil offense.
    Quite a few laws where changed and went into effect last Sept. Some good, some bad such as changes to non CCW vehicle carry now suck more.
    With no CCW no ammo in gun, no ammo in speedloaders, magazines, or speedstrips, or your firearm is considered loaded.
    Two steps forward, one step back.
    But at least wer'e making headway.

    Yep, things are fairly progressing in Ohio right now. Your right Mark, vehicle carry without CCW is a pain. But I figure if we take the time, jump through the hoops, register now, and we're supporting our right to bear and making it harder for things to go backward later.

    Yes, rest-stops are legal now. But be aware that not ALL Turnpike facilities are. Gas stations and restaurants at Turnpike stops MAY post the sign, so that you are not permitted to carry inside of them as with any other private business, but the parking lot is okay.

    We worked our butts off to get the law changed despite a lot of resistance from the usual suspects. No more handing your CCW off to a friend while you use the porta-pottie at the Fair anymore.

    O.R.C. 2923.126 (B)9 now states that CCW is off limits in:
    Check my location under my user name for a great website to learn more about the Ohio CCW situation- currently, working on getting the Class D liqour permit restriction eased to allow a CCW to eat in a restaurant with a liqour license.

    I work for the federal gov and we can't carry on the base at all. Matter of fact I asked if we could check our gun in at the patrolmans guardstation and they said no because there is no place to lock them up.

    We have made a fair amount of progress. We are working hard on Restaurant carry now, so we could use the help of our fellow Buckeye's to put pressure on the Statehouse to support the bill. The reform would allow carrying in a restaurant that has a liquor license, and no it is not a license to drink and carry as the anti-gun crowd is saying.

    You can get up to date on our laws and current efforts here.
