Is Ohio A Gun-Friendly State?

The state constitution of Ohio recognizes the rights of residents to keep and bear arms, and it is a relatively gun-friendly state. At the time of this blog, there are very few restrictions on gun sale transactions and general ownership beyond those put in place by federal laws. 

There are no permits required for open carry, and concealed carry permits can be obtained by eligible individuals aged 21 and older. To obtain a concealed carry permit in Ohio, you are required to have at least 8 hours of handgun training (2 hours of range time and 6 hours of classroom instruction) from a certified instructor. You must also pass a shooting test and a written test to demonstrate overall competency, pass a background check, and meet the residency requirements. 

What Are the Gun Sale Laws in Ohio?

In the state of Ohio, those wishing to purchase rifles or shotguns need to be at least 18 years of age, while anyone who wants to buy a handgun needs to be at least 21. The same laws apply to both private sales and those that are handled by an FFL (Federal Firearms License). There are not currently any age restrictions on the purchase of ammo, parts, and accessories. 

While these age restrictions are in place for the purchase of firearms, there are no laws in Ohio against possessing one of these firearms while under the age of 18 for rifles and shotguns and under 21 for handguns. Ohio laws also require that antique or replica firearms be treated as modern firearms for gun sale purposes, so the same restrictions would apply. 

Beyond that, Ohio follows federal law in regards to the buying and selling of firearms in Ohio gun classifieds. Federal disqualifications for gun purchases include the following:

  • Renounced U.S. citizenship
  • Felony pre-trial release
  • Dishonorable discharge from the armed forces
  • Warrant for a felony or an out-of-state misdemeanor
  • Unlawful use of or addiction to controlled substances 
  • And more
