    Correct because of the definition of "school safety zone" in ORC. However, federal law defines "school safety zone" to include the 1000' extension from school property. I'm not aware of any open carrier ever being prosecuted under Federal law, but as a technicality, they could be.

    A letter from the AG specifically states you can on grounds, but not in a building.

    3. A board of county commissioners may not prohibit a person licensed to
    carry a concealed handgun under R.C. 2923.125 or R.C. 2923.1213 from
    carrying a concealed handgun on property that is not within a building

    In addition, a board of county commissioners may not prohibit a person licensed to carry
    a concealed handgun under R.C. 2923.125 or R.C. 2923.1213 from carrying a concealed
    handgun on property that is not within a building. Charging a fee for admission to an event on
    property that is not within a building does not permit a board of county commissioners to
    prohibit a person licensed to carry a concealed handgun
    under R.C. 2923.125 or R.C. 2923.1213
    from carrying a concealed handgun on the property.


    IANAL**by reading this post you acknowledge and agree that laws and regulations may change , and that it is ultimately your responsibility to make sure that you are current and in compliance with all local, state and federal laws when carrying, concealing, and using a firearm. In no way are any of the posters posts legal advice.

    Carry On

    I would check with the person at the gate then carry on. Shouldn't have to check but I would to be safe.

  6. Im at the fair right now, spoke with an Ohio Trooper at the gate and he assured me that both CCW and open carry are legal, but as we all should know, not allowed in the buildings since they are state owned.

    I have emailed them asking them, just waiting on a response.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
    The signs don't stop criminals, I don't see why they should stop anyone else. Always carry, never tell.

  8. Not a bad thought, and i dont disagree, but in this case they have metal detectors so better to be straight up with the officers 😉
