It's a report from a Cleveland television station, so I'm assuming this article is filled with a lot of laughter.

Why would anyone who doesn't look like Drew Carey want to be in Ohio voluntarily?

Maybe he was speeding to get out of there and the gun was to incentivize people to get out of his way.

If he goes with that defense, I'd acquit.

I'm a Steelers fan and still had to google this guy.

I am kind curious as to what improper handling of a weapon in a motor vehicle is.

It implies there is a proper way to handle a weapon in a motor vehicle in Ohio.

Also, Who?

Driving in Cleveland while Steelers.  He's lucky to be alive.

It was probably loaded and accessible, which is illegal without a LTCF permit.

If I had to guess, he got pulled over for speeding and had a handgun visible in the passenger compartment, which is illegal without a concealed carry permit he probably doesn't have.

Gotta know the rules, fella. Tough luck.

If it's visible then why does he need a concealed carry permit?

Have you seen Carey lately?  With the beard he's looking more like David Letterman.

By law (in Pennsylvania and I believe Ohio, though not everywhere), if you do not have a concealed carry permit you are obligated to have the firearm and the ammunition in separated parts of the vehicle so they cannot be easily accessed together. If you have the gun in the passenger compartment you have to have the ammunition in the trunk, not just the back seat.

Like I said, if you're carrying a gun in any capacity it's your responsibility to know the rules, and if you don't that's your fault.

Ha! In my parents town no less! Those Willoughby Hills cops catch everyone speeding. About 10-15 years ago they broke up a Russian mob drug ring that was running 90 from NY to Chicago. They'd pull over the runners speeding through.

My first guess is that it was tucked into the front of his pants. 50/50 on whether there was one in the chamber.
