Two Gun Groups Take Legal Action Against Restrictions In Columbus And Cincinnati

WCBE files

Two pro gun groups are making good on their threats to take legal action against the cities of Columbus and Cincinnati over recently passed weapons laws. 

Ohioans for Concealed Carry and the Buckeye Firearms Foundation  are asking for a preliminary injunction against the new laws, as well as a temporary restraining order, citing violations of state law. Columbus' new laws among other things ban bump stocks and firearms accessories, prohibit the sale of imitation guns to minors, and ban gun sales in neighborhoods. Cincinnati recently enacted similar bump stock laws.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
