Applicants will need to bring photo identification, specifically a government issued drivers license, passport, Ohio identification card, or military identification.

All applicants should bring all handguns unloaded and securely wrapped to the police district of their choice.

A police officer will verify the applicant's identification, verify the make, model, caliber, and serial number of the weapon and do a record check on the gun.

The Plain Dealer stands by their story, and they should. In a memo posted on the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association website, CPPA President Stephen Loomis wrote:
