New Ohio gun laws going into effect

Ohio now has the Castle Doctrine and new rules on where one can carry concealed handguns:

A new Ohio law signed into effect this week, not only gives property owners the right to shoot intruders, but it's also changing Ohio's concealed carry law.

Local authorities have dealt with concealed carry since 2004 and believe this could clarify a lot of questions still associated with the law.

Already the bill has done away with the issue of carrying a gun in a locked glove box.

Colonel Bryan Hoover from the Muskingum County Sheriff's Department explains other changes, " It also permits guns to be carried in retail establishments that sell liquor, as long as the licensee isn't consuming. It permits concealed carry in a school zone, when picking a child or dropping a child off."

The Sheriff's Department will now also honor concealed carry permits to those who've had their records expunged, where in the past they would've been denied. . . .
