Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson has introduced his gun control legislation; read it here

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson has introduced legislation that would create a city gun offender registry as part of a sweeping city gun law overhaul he announced last month.

The proposal (click here to read the legislation) would require gun offenders to register with the city's safety department within five days of either being released from prison, or within five days of moving to Cleveland.

The offender would have to re-register every four years.

The gun registry legislation would replace a city assault weapons ban. The Ohio Supreme Court in 2010 affirmed state lawmakers' right to pass a uniform statewide gun law that blocked Cleveland and other cities from passing tougher laws such as assault weapons bans and handgun registration requirements.

4. Sounds like some lawyers are going to get a tax payer funded payday

 

Read the rest of the proposed legislation at the link and if the legislation is passed I expect the lawsuits will follow shortly after the legislation is passed.

Since state law preempts local law, the court cases are probably going to be overturned in short order.

More money wasted by an anti-gun extremist politician that could have been better spent on improving the city.

5. What an I missing here?

 

"The Ohio Supreme Court in 2010 affirmed state lawmakers' right to pass a uniform statewide gun law that blocked Cleveland and other cities from passing tougher laws such as assault weapons bans and handgun registration requirements."

So the Supreme Court blocked these types of end runs by Mayors like Jackson, desperate for PR, but this guy passes new rules anyway? Or did the preemption law and Ohio Supreme Court decision say; "Except for Frank Jackson in Cleveland because he's so "F'ing special"?

Can they personally fine him for all the court costs for Cleveland when he gets his ass handed to him again?

7. The mayor should have run that proposal by Legal first.

Before posting it to the internet. It would save so much embarrassment later....
