Cleveland’s Mayor Blowing Cleveland’s Bucks

Led by Mayor Frank Jackson (a member of Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns), the City of Cleveland has enacted an ordinance compelling lawful gun owners to register their firearms and report private sales and lost or stolen guns (FTF, 4.22.15).

Reaction from local firearms owners was swift: Ohioans For Concealed Carry immediately filed suit against the city.

Ohio standardizes firearms law across the state and pre-empts stricter measures by local communities. The Ohio Supreme Court affirmed this law twice, in actions brought against the City of Clyde and the City of Cleveland ... both by Ohioans For Concealed Carry.

Apparently, Jackson thinks Cleveland doesn’t have a better use for tax dollars than to blow them defending unlawful actions against lawful gun owners.
