A libertarian gun rights activist named Jeff Jordan, also known as "Hunter," fell afoul of Ohio's gun laws last week and was arrested. He was driving through the state with some weapons (that, his supporters claim, would have been legal for him to have in most states) when cops searched him during a speeding stop. The story, and a call for help in his defense, here. While the relevant statute does allow you to have a gun in your car, it has to be in a closed container, on a rack, or "in plain sight with the action open or the weapon stripped." More on the latest developments in some possible loosening of Ohio's concealed-carry statutes here.
