OH: Cincinnati mayor files lawsuit, saying NRA-backed law violates city's right of self-governance
Submitted">Mark A. Taff

It's a legal maneuver fully supported by Ethan Nichols, with Ohio Students for Gun Legislation.

"We are pro-Second Amendment," Nichols said. "We are just pro-gun safety. We do support background checks, red flag laws, banning certain assault weapons; really, the things that actually endanger people."

Ed.: Sorry Ethan, those two things are mutually exclusive.

Mr. Cranely needs to take a remedial American civics course.

The 10th Amendment reserves civil police powers to the several states. Their political subdivisions exercise certain of those powers at the pleasure of the state. Unless the state constitution includes designated home rule, the state legislature can impose whatever laws it deems appropriate.

The 14th Amendment binds the states and their political subdivisions to the Bill of Rights, now, since 2010, including the 2A, and that supersedes all state constitutions and state, county and local laws.

Localities are at the bottom of that food chain, whether they like it or not.

Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
