The right to carry a firearm could clash with weapons crimes

Most Ohio residents know that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution allows them to keep and bear arms. Even so, the government puts restrictions on how and when residents may exercise this right. For this reason, the right to carry a firearm often clashes with established weapons crimes.

In Ohio, you can openly carry a firearm in public, but you must meet certain conditions and criteria first. If you fail to understand what those qualifications and conditions are, you could end up on the wrong side of the law. For instance, you cannot carry a weapon onto government property or into schools.

You cannot carry your weapon if you plan to be drinking alcohol. Even if you will not be drinking, private businesses and property owners can request that you leave the premises if you carry a gun. You may be able to return once you no longer have your weapon on you.

Putting a weapon in your vehicle requires you to follow certain criteria and obtain the proper permissions as well. Some people are not allowed to carry a weapon. If a police officer questions your right to carry a weapon, your best course of action is to keep your hands away from your weapon and remain calm.

If you want to carry a weapon in public, it would be in your best interests to make sure that you do so legally. Otherwise, you could end up under arrest and facing charges. You have the right to challenge the charges. If you end up under arrest for weapons crimes associated with your possession of a firearm, you do not have to accept your fate and have every right to contest the charges alongside an experienced criminal defense attorney.
