USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- In what appears to be an attempt to violate the rights of its citizens and turn thousands of people into criminals, the city of Columbus, Ohio is pushing new gun restrictions.

The series of Constitution-violating ordinances include new firearm storage rules that would make gun owners guilty of misdemeanors in the fourth degree and magazine capacity restrictions that would bring a minimum of 180 days in jail if violated.

The magazine capacity restriction includes standard AR15 magazines that hold 30 rounds. The city knows it lacks the authority to regulate the capacity of magazines. Still, in true anti-gun fashion, city officials are doing everything they can to override the rights of the citizens they represent without even providing a provision for the safe surrender of the so-called “large capacity” magazines.

Without court intervention, the ordinances proposed will instantly criminalize thousands of law-abiding City of Columbus Residents for exercising their fundamental right to bear arms. The State of Ohio is seeking a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction.

The application for TRO by Ohio Attorney General, Dave Yost against City of Columbus Attorney, Zack Klein, lays out what appears to be a clean-cut argument for the 2nd Amendment and explains how the City of Columbus is far overreaching its authority.

To prevent a patchwork system of conflicting local ordinances, the General Assembly passed The Firearms Uniformity Act (R.C. 9.68) in 2006.

It created firearm standards throughout the State of Ohio and prohibited local legislation from restricting or narrowing the State’s uniform firearms laws. After amendments to R.C. 9.68 in 2018 and again in 2022, the City of Columbus continued to pursue the complaint that the State’s law violated the home-rule provisions of the Ohio Constitution. A series of motions and appeals were made, ultimately resulting in the State being granted a stay on a preliminary injunction pending the outcome of an appeal.

It would appear that in defiance of the stay, the city of Columbus recently rushed to pass a set of firearms ordinances in violation of R.C. 9.68 and the Ohio constitution that would turn lawful gun owners into criminals overnight. The push to implement these new gun restrictions by the city was based on (as you would expect) an emotional ploy to move legislation.

In their argument, the city used all the typical anti-gun rhetoric and terminology you would expect, such as “armed gunman,” “mass shooting,” “gun violence,” “common sense gun control,” etc. The city claimed that “gun violence has ripped through our communities” and “gun control simply cannot wait.” But their rhetorical fear campaign may be losing its effectiveness.

The new case against the City of Columbus seeking a temporary restraining order and a motion for preliminary injunction asks the court to recognize the Supreme Court’s recently noting in the Bruen decision that “the government must affirmatively prove that its firearms regulation is part of the historical tradition that delimits the outer bounds of the right to keep and bear arms.”

Thanks to Judge Clarence Thomas, it would appear gun owners have a brand new and seemingly very effective tool called “historical tradition” that will be used to unwind many, if not most, of this nation’s unconstitutional gun restrictions. All the gun grabbers have is a tired old game of irrational fear and propaganda.

The 2nd Amendment is not a privilege. It’s your right.

Politicians need to be held personally fiscally responsible for these unlawful decisions. As long as they are using our money to defend these over reaches they will not stop.

Joe R.

And the only currency is pelts.

Every time the 3Cs of Ohio (Cleveland, Columbus & Cincinnati) pull this crap, the local taxpayers bear their legal costs and the State has to pay its legal costs to defend preemption. We’re paying both ends of the legal fight. The locals always lose and there are no repercussions. The Democrats of the 3Cs reelect the same buffoons and the cycle repeats.

When are the Marxist Leftards going to get it,post Bruen gun control as it has come to be known is over,”Shall Not Be Infringed”.

All U.S. States are subject to the The Declaration of Independence. That document states that our rights are unalienable and from our Creator. One of the enumerated Rights found therein [the 4th] is also THE ONLY ENUMERATED RIGHT TO BE REPEATED 2X IN ANY FOUNDING DOCUMENT. [it is further implied a 3rd x in the opening paragraph] That Right is the right of any bona fide U.S. Citizen to chuck their government “whenever” they deem necessary. IT IS ALSO THE ONLY ENUMERATED RIGHT THAT CARRIES AN ASSIGNED “DUTY” TO EXERCISE THE RIGHT. NO WAY our Founders wrote that, yet still… Read more »

That would all be a good thing, but the Declaration of Independence is not a law. No one is “subject to” the D of I. It was our justification for splitting off from England, and a very good one, but it isn’t a law.

Joe R.

That’s where [among potentially many many other things] you’d be wrong.

If you visit the home of all U.S. Law [particularly the “front matter” of the U.S. Code]: https://uscode.house.gov/browse/frontmatter/organiclaws%26edition=prelim, you will find it listed FIRST among the “Organic Laws” of this Great Nation.

There is NO OTHER U.S. Founding document that states that our Rights are unalienable or that they come from our Creator.

Many U.S. States have, in their Charters [adopted to become a State] some form of recital that they and their laws have to comport to the Declaration of Independence.

I think your definition of “Defense”is different than mine. I see these tyrants still passing unconstitutional gun control laws and making #2A Sue to stop them and we arecstill playing defense to stop them. Our defense may be stronger because of Bruen, but it’s still defense.
