Ohio Supreme Court Strikes Down Local Gun Control Ordinances
Not on right to keep and bear arms grounds, but on the grounds that Ohio's pre-emption statute takes precedence over "home rule" provisions with respect to police powers. I don't claim to be knowledgeable enough to know if the Ohio Supreme Court got this right nor not. I'm pleased with the result. Uniform state gun control laws make a lot of sense--rather like uniform state-wide vehicle codes.
