I had a friend today ask me a question about conceal carry, since I applied and I wasnt sure. Out of his privacy I’ll just call him Jim.
So my friend Jim who also lives in Ohio his friend which I will call Jack for privacy concerns, is a convicted felon who was just recently released in West Virginia and currently has no place to live but wants to live with Jim who is in Ohio. And Jack has a probation and has to go through his PO to get transfered to live here in Ohio.
Jim has applied for his CCW and is currently awaiting his card and was wondering is it ok by Ohio law/WV law to carry his concealed firearm while being around a convicted felon whils having the firearm on his person at all times, not storing it in like the glovebox or anything. Also say if said convicted felon would have to live with him, would that conflict with his probation?
I wasnt really sure what to answer on this to my friend cuz I think as long as the gun is on his person and the felon is not in possesion of the firearm he should be fine? Cuz in Ohio gun law it states that a felon cannot apply for a CCW or buy/own a firearm. But I wanted to ask here since there are a lot of people who are more knowledgeable about the laws and regulations and I wanna give a solid informed answer instead of spending hours trying to find something on Google.
Thank for your time!
