Amazing. Go to the Ohio Attorney General's web site and look up the law. I'm not a lawyer, just a knowledgeable gun owner and all this information is easily attained. It is not illegal to carry into all bars. I don't think the bar mentioned above is a Class D, if so, it is illegal. However, the way the article was written is very misleading. The law regarding carrying in bars was updated in September of 2011 and here is the change. This is directly from the Ohio Attorney General's web site.

Licensed Class D liquor permit premises if you are consuming beer or intoxicating liquor or are under the influence. If you are not consuming, you may carry unless there is a conspicuous sign prohibiting carry. Possession of a concealed firearm is allowed in a retail store with a D-6 or D-8 permit as long as the concealed carry license holder is not consuming liquor. Class D permits are generally issued to an establishment that sells alcohol for consumption on the premises.

This is flat out unacceptable. Our own judge clearly doesn't know what the law states in his own jurisdiction. I'm not saying the people mentioned in the article weren't breaking the law, but it isn't absolutely against the law to carry into a bar. If he doesn't know that then he shouldn't hold his position, period.

Frost wonders if signs are posted at bars? Where do these people come from?
