Arnold v. Cleveland - http://www.constitution.org/2ll/bard..._cleveland.txtThe individual right to keep and bear arms, being a fundamental individual right that predates the United States Constitution and Ohio Constitution, and being a constitutionally protected right in every part of Ohio, the general assembly finds the need to provide uniform laws throughout the state regulating the ownership, possession, purchase, other acquisition, transport, storage, carrying, sale, or other transfer of firearms, their components, and their ammunition.
So the ORC spells it out and the Ohio Supreme Court backs it up. However, some cities enact legislation anyway. It is being challenged though.The right of defense of self, property and family is a
fundamental part of our concept of ordered liberty. To deprive our
citizens of the right to possess any firearm would thwart the right
that was so thoughtfully granted by our forefathers and the
drafters of our Constitution.
As for figuring out if such a law exists in your area, do some googling. Search for
"*your city* municipal code"
PRO TIP: searching for "firearm", "handgun", and "weapon" within the municipal code generally gives you all of the relevant provisions.
