OH:Open Carry Walk in Lima Ohio

LIMA — A group hosting a walk through downtown Lima on Sunday to promote the right to carry guns in the open insisted the event was much more than a display of gun rights.

“There is a lot of attention on the rights to conceal carry and people do not even realize you also have a right to open carry,” said Ryan Anderson, public relations director for Northwest Ohio Carry, a group that promotes the safe, open carrying of firearms. “Some locals requested us to come here. We wanted to help them get the word out.”

A group of 28 residents from Lima and surrounding communities turned out for the event and walked from the Allen County Jobs and Family Services through downtown Lima, carrying a variety of weapons ranging from AR-15s to Smith and Wessons, from Glocks to Springfield XDs, to simple home defense shotguns. Most of the people attending all agreed that the public’s right to bear arms is being infringed upon, and through walks such as this they hope to get information out to the public.
