City of Cleveland files to challenge HB347

City of Cleveland files to challenge HB347

Today the City of Cleveland filed a declaratory judgment against the State of Ohio to fight the enactment of
Ohio Revised Code (RC) section 9.68.


ORC Section 9.68: "(A) The individual right to keep and bear arms, being a
fundamental individual right that predates the United States Constitution and
Ohio Constitution, and being a constitutionally protected right in every part of
Ohio, the general assembly finds the need to provide uniform laws throughout the state
regulating the ownership, possession, purchase, other acquisition, transport, storage,
carrying, sale, or other transfer of firearms, their components, and their ammunition."


This preemption provision enacted in HB347 allows law abiding gun owners to travel throughout Ohio without concern
of violating the previous patchwork of ordinances enacted by various cities. HB347 effectively put the battle back where
it belongs, between the city attorneys and the state legislature.

How does this effect people who live in Cleveland and other people in the state?

So the poorest city in the US has money to try to further regulate what people who have already passed local, state and federal background checks do? Amazing.

No, they'll do the usual...

Threaten to lay-off police and fire then raise taxes.

I hate my tax money being spent to sue myself, basically. Cleveland gets State and Fed. aid, we're basically paying for ourselves to sue ourselves.

Stupid, stupid, stupid...

Did anyone else hear the article on NPR regarding the city of Cleveland. They devoted a major part of the segment to the major of Cleveland saying (seemed to be a very inarticulate speaker) his rant about safety, and how he wanted to keep children from firing guns. Our hero from the Buckeye Firearms Assoc was allowed to refute the arguement, but the whole segment tried to cast us in a bad light.
