So I know there is a Kentucky version of this but I was curious if anyone here is knowledgeable on the law here in Ohio.
Say if a felon has to live with me, which I am a registered gun owner and have a CCW. I do keep my guns locked up in a lock box and only I have the key.
I know Constructive Possession mean if the felon can get dominion or access to said firearm without physically possessing it, it can count as a violation.
But if I keep my guns under lock and key, and have either the key on me at all times or hidden without said felon knowing where it is or even knowing that said firearms are in the residence?
And lets say this felon is convicted of a non violent offense. Is it ok that they live with me as long as my guns are hidden, locked, and kept away from them? And if I decide to carry my gun, as long as its on my person in my IWB holster at all times and not in the glovebox and concealed, will that be violation for said felon?
I know I asked something simular to this on another post about my friend, but it sparked a huge curiosity after also reading the KY post. And was curious on Ohio. I’d love to be more knowledgeable on this. Cuz if someone I know is a felon and they have no place to live and I say hey live with me, I’d like to know what my options are. I know we have to speak with his Probation Officer to ask these things, but thought this would be an interesting post so that other fellow Ohio residents can have some knowledge.
Thing is, I took Attorney law in highschool years ago (Laws have changed since 2007) cuz my career choice was gunna be in Law Enforcement. And I did go to a vocational school and take a class on LEO training. But I have a bad back which kept me from going fully through to applying to my local PD.
Thank you to anyone who can give me some insight on this! <3 Much love and be blessed!
