Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley says his city is joining Columbus in taking the state to court over a recently-passed gun law.  

Cranley says the bill that blocks local gun control legislation limits the city's ability to govern itself, in violation of the Ohio  Constitution's home rule provision.  The two cities are suing over the law that was backed by the National Rifle Association and the Buckeye Firearms Association.
