Monday, June 25th, 2018: Today The Honorable Judge Cain issued a Temporary Restraining Order sought by the plaintiffs in the on-going litigation against the City of Columbus:

Upon Motion of Plaintiffs and for good cause shown, it appearing that Plaintiffs will suffer irreparable harm in the absence of this Order, it is hereby ORDERED as follows: Defendants shall suspend all enforcement activity associated with Columbus Codified Ordinance §2323.171 and 2323.13, including but not limited to, charging suspects, conducting investigations, spending money and entering into contracts with third parties.

This Temporary Restraining Order prohibits the City of Columbus from enforcing their newly enacted firearms ban ordinance for at least the next fourteen days, where the court may extend the order or modify it upon further briefs and/or motions filed by either party.

Judges don’t issue restraining orders unless the plaintiffs are likely to win at trial. The temporary order will stand until the trial. Then when gun owners win, the city will have to pay court costs and repay the plaintiffs.


These jerks don’t have the authority to enact laws of this nature ,just seeing how far they can push the people before they push back

The city attorney in Columbus is an idiot and always will be.
