Living in Toledo this was a big relief as Toledo was one of the more restrictive cities in Ohio.
We used to have to apply for a hand gun owners card to be considered legal to own a hand gun in city limits.
My question is has this recent Ohio supreme court ruling been found to be unconstitutional or over ruled?
I would hate to have to go back to the old ways here in Toledo. So can individual municipalities had there own set of gun laws in Ohio ?
2. I'm not sure the Supreme Court ruled the way you think. I don't remember any such ruling. I remember the legislature passing preemption, and there being a number of unsuccessful challenges. This is, I believe, the first successful challenge and hasn't made it to the Supreme Court yet.
3. The lower court ruling has in fact been stayed.
