It appears that Summit County Metroparks still post "weapons prohibited" signs. A friend of mine was down by Peninsula this afternoon and he let me know this evening that the park still posts. I looked on the SCMP website, and sure enough, on their website it states..
8. The following actions/items are prohibited: littering; hunting, trapping and feeding wildlife; removing flowers, shrubs and other property; disorderly conduct; public indecency and nudity; alcoholic beverages; firearms and fireworks; camping; commercial enterprises; posting and distributing signs or advertisements.
So I downloaded the full rules and regs and under section 6.1 it states
6.1 Weapons and Firearms: No person except Park
Rangers or other certified peace officers of Metro Parks,
Serving Summit County shall possess, carry, control,
discharge, use, brandish, convey, or attempt to convey
firearms of any description, deadly weapons, dangerous
ordinances, explosive substances, or replica weapons in the
Park without first obtaining a written permit from the
Director-Secretary, unless otherwise authorized by law.The
term “weapons” shall include, but is not limited to: firearms;
compressed gas or spring-powered pistols or rifles; air
rifles; bows and arrows; crossbows; paintball markers;
blowguns; spearguns; spears; edged weapons; swords; darts;
sling-shots; irritant gas devices; explosive devices; any other
implement designed to discharge missiles; and any other
weapon, the possession of which is prohibited under the
laws of the State of Ohio.The term “replica weapons” shall
include any device which might reasonably be perceived to
be a real weapon.
Does the "unless authorized by law" section clear CHL holders from this? I didn't think it did, but I could be wrong.
