My husband has a felony for drug possession 9 years ago in Canton, Ohio. I don't have a record and I want a gun in the home for protection. Will this be a problem b/c of his record? God forbid if we ever had to use the weapon would he go to jail even if it was self defense b/c he is a felon? Also, is it true that you don't have to register guns in Ohio and that you can buy a gun from anyone without any formal documentation needing to be submitted to the police station? I was told that in Ohio that was law but want to be sure. It doesn't sound right to me that the police don't want to know who is in possession of weapons.
