State Laws to be aware of:
It is the responsibility of attendees to know and comply with all and Federal Firearms Laws.
Check State Laws. Ohio law has an unusual understanding of a "loaded" firearm in a vehicle. If you have a loaded magazine or speed loader (stripper clips are exempt), in the same vehicle as an otherwise unloaded firearm, Ohio considers that firearm to be "loaded". Therefore, make sure all mags are unloaded during transport.
