Be advised that 18 U.S.C. § 922(n) https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/922 (Federal Law) prohibits the shipment or transportation in interstate or foreign commerce of any firearm or ammunition and prohibits the receipt of any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce by any person who is under indictment for a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one (1) year. Accordingly, you cannot ship transport any firearm of ammunition in interstate or foreign commerce and you cannot acquire any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce while under indictment.
Further, any individual under indictment for a felony offense of violence or a felony offense involving the illegal possession of drugs may not possess a firearm. See R.C. 2923.13 http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2923.13v1 .
