Perry State Forest APV Area & CCW

Post by BobnOhio » Tue Mar 31, 2015 9:07 am

Can a CHL carry concealed while riding an ATV in the Perry State Forest APV area?

Their posted regulations state: 11. Operators of APV’s shall not carry or transport any firearms
or other weapons that are not unloaded and securely encased.

Is this regulation overridden by Ohio CHL laws?

Bob:

Just IMHO, the forest should be OK, but not any of their buildings. But to be honest, I have no idea.

Somebody will likely be along who knows, though.

Meantime, Welcome Aboard! There's a sticky at viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10097 that you might want to have a look at, but it's not mandatory, although slightly safer than an ATV :D....

Maybe. ORC 4519.40(A)(5)states:
A) The applicable provisions of Chapters 4511. and 4549. of the Revised Code shall be applied to the operation of snowmobiles, off-highway motorcycles, and all-purpose vehicles, except that no snowmobile, off-highway motorcycle, or all-purpose vehicle shall be operated as follows:


(5) While transporting any firearm, bow, or other implement for hunting, that is not unloaded and securely encased;
This is an easily missed code section.

Now, the argument is that you are not transporting, but carrying. No caselaw on it yet to my knowledge.
