Weapons Notice

Regardless of the recent change in Ohio’s concealed carry law, deadly weapons are still prohibited in buildings within which a courthouse is located, such as the County Office Building and Courthouse.  Ohio law section 2923.123 still makes it a felony crime to bring in or have a deadly weapon or dangerous ordnance in a courthouse or into another building in which a courtroom is located, except for law enforcement officers in their official duties.

Ohio law prohibits people from bringing weapons into courthouses.  2923.123 states that: 

(A) No person shall knowingly convey or attempt to convey a deadly weapon or dangerous ordnance into a courthouse or into another building or structure in which a courtroom is located.  

(B) No person shall knowingly possess or have under the person's control a deadly weapon or dangerous ordnance in a courthouse or in another building or structure in which a courtroom is located.

This section of Ohio law goes on to exempt law enforcement officers who are carrying a weapon as part of their official duties.
