    There’s No problem carrying a loaded weapon on your person in Ohio either. Ohio is an OPEN CARRY state.
    You only need a license to carry if you are carrying concealed.

    Only in Mount Vernon Ohio would this be considered ok or acceptable. How do they know it was unloaded? Was there a bullet in the chamber? Or better yet why was he carrying it?
