I thought it would be wise to post this after
reading another thread about magazine capacity.

Anyone want to comment / clarify?

-------------------------------------------
In the Ohio code, the term "dangerous ordnance" includes: automatic firearms; short barreled rifles and shotguns; firearms of "crude or extemporized manufacture"; and devices that are not designed as firearms but can be adapted for use as firearms, or are capable of being used as firearms.

"Automatic firearm" is any firearm designed or specially adapted to fire a succession of cartridges with a single function of the trigger. "Automatic firearm" also means any semi-automatic firearm designed or specially adapted to fire more than thirty-one cartridges without reloading, other than a firearm chambering only .22 caliber short, long, or long-rifle cartridges.

It is unlawful to knowingly acquire, have, carry, or use any dangerous ordnance. Exceptions are:

Owners of dangerous ordnance registered under the National Firearms Act;
Authorized state and federal officers, agents, and employees, members of the armed forces or organized militia, and law enforcement officers when acting within the scope of their duties;
Licensed importers, manufacturers, and dealers.
It is unlawful to negligently fail to take proper precautions to secure a dangerous ordnance against theft, acquisition or use by an unauthorized or incompetent person, and to negligently fail to take precautions to insure the safety of persons and property.

You are correct nothing over thirty's legaly aloud to be used in OH. They sell them here but you can't legally use them. Since I would think there would be someone from law enforecement there in an official capacity though probably not in a uniform. Best to try and keep the good name of the law abiding gun community and not get busted on some little BS law.

Yep. Good ol' Ohio laws................

Be sure and be ready to pull your FCG too, just to make sure the parts count is correct

I'll be the guy with the 5 round rifles, look for me, I'll have a hat that says "Compliant".

I promise my pistol will be locked in a locked box locked within a locked box that says "Loadable pistol locked within this locked box that might potentially be loaded by children if they break into the other locked box within a locked box that has the magazine. Don't even ask about how many locked boxes the ammunition is in....."

edit: Please excuse my CCW based sarcasm, just a bitter pill to swallow yet...

Good ol' Ohio. Put an extra round in that thing, and the sear instantly goes automatic.

Indiana is looking better all the time.

Please note that our 31 round limit was a concession and a gift to AK shooters. When I went through the Police Academy in 1986 the limit was 20 +1 limit. Now, as to never having been caught or prosecuted well, thats probably true, but please know that there will be alot of Ohio cops at BF. Its sorta like inviting a cop to a party and then breaking out the bongs and joints. It is not really a serious crime, but it certainly makes the cop feel uncomfortable, and unwelcome. Its not nice to force someone to choose between your friendship and their oath.

Virginia looks better every day that I live here.

Arizona kicks ass pretty hard, also.

Let's see . . . a 31 round belt in a GE minigun would last -
6000r/min / 60sec = 100rd / sec
31/100 = .31 seconds of fun.

The rounds would be out before the barrels even got up to correct rotational speed.

Sounds like its time for you guys to get yo' asses out of those Socialist states.

Er um, as noted above, the mag limit law does not apply to registered Machine guns. It is used as a defining term for a machine gun, thus under state law any semi auto with an installed capacity in excess of 31 rounds must be registered as a machine gun. The GE minigun does not need to worry.

Ok, I'll just go register my AR as...oh, wait. I love not being legally permitted to comply with the law.
