To take another route to your question- at what age are you permitted to hunt in Ohio WITHOUT having an adult present? If you can hunt with a firearm at 16, 17, etc..........

And no, I don't know the answer in Ohio. But if you can possess a shotgun while hunting, then it would follow you can possess one at home- with the consent of parents.

Here's a link to a page that will help answer the question on age.

FWIW, I would say if you trust him with the shotgun in his room, go for it. just make sure he has a good cabinet or safe to keep it in when he is not using it, or in direct control of it. That's how my parents did it with me, and my wife and I did it with our daughter. Once he is 18, private party transfer it to him.

Yes and don't sweat the issue of what will happen if he blasts a big freakin hole in a bad guy. Legal entanglements are stressful and a pain in the ass and will undoubtedly follow any SD shooting...but you're still alive.

And if that actually happened, your son would probably be hailed as a hero.

there are alot of situations in the us were minors have defended their home from intruders, etc.. it depends on the state you live in, if you live in CA,Ny, IL or some other states like these your probally screwed, most friendly gun states have a castle Doctrine, thats what you need to check....

I have done some internet searches and things but I haven't gotten a clear answer but in the rare event someone breaks into the homestead, would he be able to draw that firearm and possibly fire it in defense [even rarer] (bad guy was coming at him in aggressive manor). What legal actions would be taken as he is a minor and he had possession of the firearm in his room, not in mine etc. Thanks all for the help in advance. And to all the safety sallies out there, please hold your breath and go play some more call of duty. Thanks guys.
one suggestion might be to ask the local police on a hypothetical what if basis. Since they are the likely ones you/your son would have to fave in the event of a shooting.

My how things have changed. In 1973, my 12th Christmas, Santa put a Remington 1100 12 ga under the tree for me. Santa never left that bill of sale. In 1979 I turned 18, but I don't recall going to the courthouse to transfer ownership of my shotgun to me.

Mind you for the first few years of being a shotgunner, it was only with parental approval and/or other responsible adult supervision (big brother, granddaddy, great-aunt).

My great-aunt drove a school bus and would transport my single shot .410 on the floor next to her seat when I visited her on weekends. Try that now.

I hope we have not gotten to a point a parent cannot purchase their children a shotgun if they wish to do so.

One more reason I find to feel fortunate not to have children. If I did for/to my kids what my parents did I would be in jail, spankings, shotguns for Christmas, chores on the farm, oh the abuse I suffered.

My 15yr old son keeps a 20ga shotgun in his room for self defense purposes. He has been around guns all his life so I trust him completely. Hopefully he will never have to use it in the house.

This sparks interest to me as well. Would OP have to get a transfer paper even though there was no papers or proof of ownership in the first place. (As private sales are, you basically walk off with the gun and just that.) Oh in Ohio anyone under 18 can posses a long gun. 18-21 can posses a handgun (read on these yourself but I checked few sources that said the above).

And as a side not, you can conceal carry when you are 16 in Vermont (again fact checked but not in depth).

Seems to me there have cases reported in the news where the firearm is owned by the adult but a child had access to it and shot the bad guy when the adult wasn't home. No charges filed against the child. Google may offer some cases.

Presuming it was clearly a BG, then it's self-defense. Is a lawyer going to question why a gun was in his room? I would probably say the answer is there is no law saying firearms can only be kept in one spot, so I would think you're good.
