MCSO Offering Training for Veterans on CCW Law

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Marion County Veteran Services and Stephen Chaney VFW Post 7201 will be hosting an informational meeting discussing the new parts of Ohio’s concealed handgun license law pertaining to veterans.

On November 5th, 2018 Ohio’s concealed carry law changed and now waives the concealed carry permit fee for active duty military, retired, and honorably discharged veterans. The law also allows a veteran applying for a concealed handgun license, who has retired from or has been honorably discharged from military service in the active or reserve armed forces of the U.S., to be exempt from the additional firearms training requirements of the concealed carry law, regardless of the date of their retirement or honorable discharge. Under the new law, no additional training is required for persons who are retired from military service or honorably discharged so long as the applicant provides the applicant's firearms competency certification.

Veterans applying for their concealed handgun license under the new law are still required to understand and follow all of the other parts of the existing concealed carry law. This training is to inform veterans about the application process and to go over other topics that would have been covered in a competency class.  Topics that will be covered at the training will include: criminal backgrounds, the application process, law enforcement contact while carrying concealed, forbidden carry zones, use of force, self-defense and the Castle Doctrine.

The training will take place on Saturday November 17th, 2018 from 8am to 10am at the Stephen Chaney VFW Post 7201 at 1614 Marion Marysville Road (State Route 4 south).  The training is free and open to all veterans. Questions about the training can be directed to Major Jeff Cline at (740)382-8244 ext. 5123.

LEVEL 1 SNOW ADVISORY CANCELED

     

At 12:10pm on 2/5/2018 the Marion County Sheriff's Office canceled the Level 1 snow advisory.

 

At 8:45pm on 2/4/2018 the Marion County Sheriff’s Office issued a level one snow advisory for Marion County. Due to precipitation falling most of the day, along with dropping temperatures roadways have become hazardous.  Roadways are icy and snow is expected to fall until tomorrow morning.  Road crews are out treating and plowing the roads.  Motorists should be mindful of snow and ice covered roads, especially on bridges and overpasses. Be alert for vehicles going into ditches and medians and vehicles traveling slowly. Keep a safe distance from other vehicles and drive with caution. 

LEVEL 1 SNOW ADVISORY CANCELLED

At 8:00PM on January 13, 2018, the Marion County Sheriff's Office cancelled the Level 1 Snow Advisory.  Most roadways are clear but there are still some snow covered and icy spots so use caution when driving.

 

At 9:30AM on January 13, 2018, the Marion County Sheriff's Office canceled the level 2 snow advisory and downgraded it to a level 1 snow advisory.

 

At 10:30PM on January 12, 2018, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office issued a level two snow advisory for Marion County. Primary and secondary roadways are extremely hazardous due to still falling snow and high winds.  With the snow still falling and the wind picking up many roads are down to one lane and are drifting quickly. Road crews will continue working throughout the night to clear the roads.  Motorists should be mindful of temporary white out conditions and being able to see where the road ends and the ditch begins, especially after in the dark.  Be alert for cars going into ditches and medians.  If you must drive, use extreme caution and allow yourself extra time.  Only travel that is essential, or of an emergency nature, should be attempted.
