  • Weapons under disability in Ohio

    After going through pawn slips I see that a local thug pawned a shotgun. He is under disability for trafficking in marijuana. I have read the ORC and cannot locate the proceedure for retrieving the firearm from the pawn shop. I have been told to just go and get it. I have been told that I need to have the Chief of Police sign a letter saying I am authorized to get the gun and I have been told I have to have the pawn shop perform a background check. Has anyone dealt with similar situations? I am a LEO. Why would I need a letter from the Chief or a background check? If someone can help me with an ORC code or case law I would appreciate it!

    I would move this to the Ohio section as it is totally state specific
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

        He still owns the gun, The pawnbroker cannot sell it back to HIM/HER...but they can sell/give the pawn ticket to another person who may redeem it by repaying the loan. A pawn ticket is a bearer bond more or less.

        Maybe you CAN just take the gun from the pawnbroker, but then he/she would be out what they loaned on the gun, so you could understand their reluctance to just handing it over ?

          Who in the world told you that you can just go in there and take it? A letter from your chief isn't going to cut it either. You can probably get the pawnshop owner to confirm that the guy pawned the firearm (Did he pawn it or sell it?). You then need to get a certifed copy of his conviction/s that lead to his disability to owning a firearm, then you need a court order to get it. The pawnshop does not have any legal responsibility to determine the seller's legal record, nor do they have to surrender the firearm to you absent a court order.

            IF the guy pawned it, the pawnshop will have to do a 4473/NICS before he can get it back.
