  • Ohio & Hr 218

    Hi. Im a fairly new LEO and just have a couple of questions about officer carry in relation to HR218 and Ohio law.

    1. Can an off duty officer legally carry into a liquor establishment?
    2. Can an off duty officer legally carry into a school/university?
    3. Can an off duty officer legally ignore "no carry" zones?

    If yes, should we carry open or concealed?

    (When I carry my badge is always next to my gun, so if the gun is seen so is my badge)

    Since I'm retired and carry/qualify according to HR218, I was hoping you (being active) would know the answer to your questions. I thought officers knew exactly where we (old retired guys) could carry, so we (old loss of memory retired guys) would not get hassled by you young warrior officers. All I know is I'm not walking into any court house with a gun. Everywhere else, I carry one.
    The views/opinions expressed here are solely mine. I'm retired and I don't care. I truly do not want to offend anyone, but if you are thin skinned and have no sense of humor, you better find another line of work. Therefore, I don't have to be politically correct and I will exercise my freedom of speech, until it's taken away. May God bless all retirees. We've done our duty and earned our peace.

      I am a very new LEO and just learning the ropes. I personally would NEVER hassle another officer/retired for carrying ANYWHERE. The more good guys with guns the better.

        Question #1. Why would you want to carry into liquor establishment?
        If you drink don't carry with you.
        #2, and #3. If you have your badge and your gun you can carry anywhere. Except airport, federal bldg., and other federal sites. Also remember if this is private property they can ask you to leave or refuse to let you in.
        Check with your department they might have other procedures that you must follow, if not you can get in trouble with your own agency.

            You can legally carry at hospitals, universities, etc., but you need to remember that these places also have the right to tell you that you are on private property and that you need to leave your weapon in your car or locked up in the institutional security or police office. If that is not agreeable, you can leave. Carry it properly and no one is going to know you have it anyway.

              Only liquor establishments I would carry in would be restaurants with D license, and I would never drink while armed. Thank you very much for your reply, you have been very helpful
