          Hancock County: Findlay Evangelical Free Church.

          Church leadership has informed me that as long as a person has a valid license, they do not have a problem with it. In fact, one of the pastors carries all the time. This policy is kept very hush hush though. So, if you visit, don't ask, just carry.

            Since churches are the only "opt in" as far as statutory CPZs, and permission is required either to all or by individual, I'd get a document to CYA. I believe that all statutory CPZ's carry a felony charge, not just trespass.
            To ignore your rights is a giant slap in the face to our Constitution, our freedom, and every single man and woman who has died protecting them.
            We didn't lose our rights overnight. To think we'll get them back overnight is simply foolish.

                  The first quote is really scary because the second quote is correct. It is NOT OK to carry in church just because the Pastor says it's oK. It MUST be PROVABLE that permission was given, i.e. a sign or in writing (church stationary or the Newsletter or..). The point here is that permission must be given in a form more than oral. It IS a Felony to carry in church without that written or signage permission and you could just be the next case that BFA tries to win in court. A place of worship is the ONLY forbidden place where the person in charge has the option to give this permission. Schools cannot, courthouses cannot. No place on the list of forbidden places can grant this except places of worship and they must put it in writing.
                  There are at least two of the places on the above County list that I have contacted and the Pastors have REFUSED to put it into writing. If you go with their oral "OK" you could be spending the next few years in the "Graystone Motel" contemplating the error of your ways...
                  Scenario: You ask your Pastor and he says, "Sure. I know you. No problem carrying your CW in our church." So you do.
                  In the middle of the service a nutcase (just the kind you carry to protect against0 comes in and shoots and kills the Pastor. You shoot and kill the perp. the police arrest you for carrying in a Forbidden zone. You protest, "I had an OK to do so." The police say, "Prove it...."
                  For the folks who added their church to this list I say, please give me the Pastor's name and phone number so I can call. I'd love to not be able to make this statement but, I HAVE YET TO FIND A SINGLE CHURCH IN OHIO THAT WILL GRANT THIS PERMISSION IN WRITING.

                    Can someone here who claims that carrying a concealed handgun in a church without explicit permission is a felony, please point me to the applicable statute that makes that crime punishable as a felony for a first time offender? I do not see such laid out anywhere in ORC 2923. At best I can determine it may be a Class 1 misdemeanor.

                      I will look into that...I do know Ken Hanson says it is a felony.

                        2923.126(C)(3)(a) Except as provided in division (C)(3)(b) of this section, the owner or person in control of private land or premises, and a private person or entity leasing land or premises owned by the state, the United States, or a political subdivision of the state or the United States, may post a sign in a conspicuous location on that land or on those premises prohibiting persons from carrying firearms or concealed firearms on or onto that land or those premises. Except as otherwise provided in this division, a person who knowingly violates a posted prohibition of that nature is guilty of criminal trespass in violation of division (A)(4) of section 2911.21 of the Revised Code and is guilty of a misdemeanor of the fourth degree. If a person knowingly violates a posted prohibition of that nature and the posted land or premises primarily was a parking lot or other parking facility, the person is not guilty of criminal trespass in violation of division (A)(4) of section 2911.21 of the Revised Code and instead is subject only to a civil cause of action for trespass based on the violation.

                        Misdemeanor of the fourth degree.

                          You have it backwards. The section of the ORC that you are quoting pertains to "private land or premises." A "Place of worship" is listed under the "Forbidden Places" and does not have to be posted in order to prevent concealed carry; It is ALREADY prohibited along with schools, courthouses, police stations, etc.
                          However, it is the ONLY place on the ":Forbidden zone" list that can have permission given to carry. Without that permission it is a felony to carry in a "Forbidden zone."

                            What section says its a felony. It seem people keep saying it's a felony, but nobody states what section says that.

                              Is a church public or private???? I would bet that all churches are private. The government, constitutionally, cannot create a church even though they think they are god.

                              The last time I looked churches are run by their creators/members. If you wish to join you must apply for membership, hence private.

                              State operated mental hospitals, police stations, jails, court houses and schools are areas that open and conceal carry is not permitted. The state regulates conceal carry. Open carry is a constitutional right. You can open carry in a government building except for the above mentioned.
