Last week, the Ohio Supreme Court made a ruling upholding Ohio's preemption law and siding with both the state's and NRA's position, as outlined in an amicus brief the organization filed with the Court. The case, The City of Cleveland v. the State of Ohio, stems from the City of Cleveland's scheme to establish a series of restrictive gun laws despite Ohio law, which clearly prohibits such municipal gun ordinances.

NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox said the ruling "…is a victory for law-abiding Ohioans. This ruling makes clear that preemption is the law in the Buckeye State and a patchwork of gun laws is not acceptable. If Cleveland, or any other city, wants to crack down on violence, city leaders there should focus on prosecuting criminals, not enacting new gun laws that only serve to restrict law-abiding citizens."

The City of Cleveland filed suit against the State of Ohio in March of 2007, challenging changes to Ohio state gun laws that effectively preempted all municipal ordinances as to possession and concealed carry of handguns. Cleveland's city council passed a never-ending stream of useless and burdensome ordinances-including forced registrations and bans on both open carry and semi-automatic firearms-that only impacted the law-abiding. The city filed suit to try to preserve its ability to impose these restrictions. The Court found that the state law in no way violates Cleveland's home rule powers under the Ohio Constitution, as those powers are still subordinate to matters of general concern within the state.

NRA immediately moved to intervene but was rebuffed by the trial court and again at the mid-appellate level. The trial court ruled for the state, but the court of appeals reversed and ruled for Cleveland. NRA, along with Ohioans for Concealed Carry, filed an amicus brief with the Ohio State Supreme Court in support of the state's ability to make firearm laws of general concern, and thus effectively preempt municipalities from creating a patchwork of gun laws throughout the state.

There was a well known national gun writer who was a Sergeant in Shaker Heights Ohio, a close suburb of Cleveland. Someone will remember his name - he wrote for Guns and Ammo and I think he retired to Arizona. Gary something I think.

I met him at the OGCA show one time, and he told me that it was ILLEGAL for him to enter the City of Cleveland carrying his hi cap magazine even ON DUTY.

They just got too carried away with their BS laws.
