BIG NEWS in Ohio this morning.
Ohio Supreme Court strikes down gun ban in city parks. This is a great victory.
This case originated about 40 miles from my home. The village of Clyde Ohio had passed an ordinance banning dangerous weapons in city parks after Ohio’s state legislature adopted our concealed carry law. The concealed carry law in Ohio included an explicit list of where weapons could be banned in Ohio. Public parks were not on that list, but cities like Clyde, Toledo and others went ahead and banned them.
The Supreme Court of Ohio said Ohioans For Concealed Carry are correct in their assertions – government may not ban guns in parks.
