Will an un-expunged juvenile record prevent me from being able to obtain a concealed carry permit? Non- gun relatedI am in Ohio by the way, also would this hinder me in Arizona?
It's possible. It depends on the charge and the local sheriff's discretion in issuing the permits. You should seek to have the record expunged. Many drug/alcohol crimes can cause trouble getting a permit until they are expunged.

Each state sets its own requirements for concealed carry permits, and drug offenses or offenses of violence, even if misdemeanors, will frequently prevent the issuance of a concealed carry permit. Consulting with the office issuing the CC permit or a local attorney will most quickly answer your questions.
