Ohio Open carry handguns in a motor vehicle sign now

Current Ohio Legislation allows people to openly carry a loaded gun in plain view in most places in Ohio. However it has some exceptions, under current law when transporting your firearm in a motor vehicle you are required to unload it and place your firearm in a locked box or container unless you have a Concealed Carry Permit.

This petition would change Ohio law to extend an individuals right of openly carrying a firearm. This petition would repeal ORC 2923.16 only for handguns. Long guns would still be governed by ORC 2923.16 This petition would allow a person with or without a concealed carry permit to lawfully open carry a loaded Handgun, magazine or speed loader while in a motor vehicle as long as all of the following conditions apply.

1. You are not prohibited from buying selling or owning a firearm by local, State or federal law.

2. The loaded handgun, magazine or speed loader must be clearly exposed in plain sight and not concealed by any article of clothing. A seat belt covering the handgun, magazine or speed loader is not considered concealed.

3. The handgun, magazine or speed loader is secured to your persons person in a secured holster or carrier.

4. In the event of law enforcement interaction you are required to notify the officer when he first approaches your car that you are lawfully open carrying a handgun. You should then follow the officers instructions and not make any moves toward the handgun unless authorized by the Law enforcement Officer.

The law enforcements duties when interacting with a person openly carrying a handgun in a motor vehicle is as follows.
1. The Law enforcement officer for his safety may ask for the person open carrying the handgun to hand him the handgun and may place the handgun on top of the open carriers car roof or hood until the interaction with that law enforcement officer is over at which time the law enforcement officer will hand the handgun back to the open carrier.
2. A law enforcement officer may not check the handgun or run its serial number unless he is given permission to do so by the open carrier carrying the handgun.

This petitioned change would only cover handguns. There are no changes to the transportation of long guns in this petitioned change in Ohio law.
