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.

We live in Ohio, and my husband has been following this case through Ohioans for Concealed Carry. It's a good decision.
