These are the cities which have medical schools that i have applied to in ohio

not that this can be the deciding factor but if by luck i get in anywhere (or a few schools) this would possibly influence my decision.

what i want. to be able to keep my 2005 SEBR (no ban) in my apartment with 30 rnd mags (i'll settle for 20rounders) and a pistol for the CCW i have yet to get.

1. Toledo
2. Columbus
3. Dayton
4. Cleveland
5. Athens
6. Cincinnati


i know packing.org has some of the gun laws for these cities, but if anyone knows of a site (or ar15 topic) that summarizes these into a coherent paragraph, let me know.


edit: basically i'm looking for info from people living in these cities on what they can/ can not do. thanks

It most cases just get an apartment in outlaying townships and you can avoid the laws. That is what I'm doing when I move to Cinci for UC.

you seem to have them listed from worst to best. but I would favor athens over cincinati.

Is Athens a city? LOL

Yeah, your order is pretty much worst to least.

As somebody already pointed out, just make sure wherever you live it's outside the city limits.

Toledo sucks but Maumee or Perrysburg are pretty close to MUO. Just live in one of the surrounding suburbs. MUO is a couple minutes down the road from Maumee. T-town is small enough that living in Perrysburg, Maumee, Monclova twp, Holland, Sylvania, etc. would only be a 10-20 minute drive to campus.

You could easily find something reasonably close (20min. or less) to The Big Farm in the Columbus suburbs.

Depending on where school is in Cleveland (Case Western?), I'd think that city would be the hardest to find affordable/suitable living conditions near campus and still be allowed to keep your guns legally.

If you are you to CWRU/CCF for med school, there are plenty of places to live within a 10-15 minute commute of campus that are firearms friendly. Most of my friends that are in med/dental/grad school don't live inside Cleveland city.

I would agree with that list.

I sent you a PM.

Engineer, what areas are you talking about? I may be moving to the west side of Cleveland and I'm checking out decent places to live, preferably not terribly expensive.

How far west?

Elyria and Lorain are pretty cheap, as is North Ridgeville.

Can't speak for the others, but Athens has no gun control laws that I can find. I just searched the Athens City revised code (see www.athenscitylawdirector.com and found nothing other than discharging a firearm within city limits.

You're SEBR would be GTG here. Heck, I'm having mine delivered to the local shop here in town and I bought my first AR15 there as well (with all the evil features, including 30rd magazines).

Bob is probably your west side guru since he lives out there, but the question is the same - are you looking to commute to Cleveland for work? I have a friend that works at Case and commutes from as far out west as Avon.

I think he might have meant Akron?

Whats wrong with NEOUCOM www.neoucom.edu located in the sleepy village of Rootstown, Ohio in Portage County. No liberal gun control laws there.
Link Posted: 12/29/2005 8:53:44 PM EDT
I'm looking at working at Metro. I need to be fairly close.


NEOCOM may be a good choice. I'm assuming you already have a degree in which case you would be a "non-traditional" student by their system. I've worked with many of their grads, they were all sharp.

This is a simple rank:

1) Athens

2) The rest....

All the other cities have Assault WEAPONS STYLE BANS of some sort or another...with Columbus at the bottom...
