    I live about an hour from there and there have been 3 shootings in the last two weekends that I know of I am sure more. I feel bad for the 12 year old girl that got caught in the middle of two jerks fighting it out and never saw day light again. It's the same as always. You can ban them and put whatever restrictions you want but the "bad guy" will always get his hands on them.

    What a moron. "Can't wait for the lawsuit to proceed." C'mon, does this mean a DC citizen should just go get a pistol for thier house, despite the case not having gone through the Supreme Court, because they "can't wait for the lawsuit to proceed"? Wake up, Mayor Moron, and grab a clue - you, too, are NOT above the law!

    I'm so sick of this "sense of security" and "feeling safe" crap.

    Glad I don't live there.

    The way I see it, at age 18, you're an adult. Period.

    Here in VA we can OWN handguns and evil assault weapons at age 18. I did...at age 18 I owned 7 handguns...all from face-to-face sales from relatives and friends :) this wasn't all that long ago either :D

    Wow, I mean really wow...

    Okay so most criminals are under the age of 28 so we ban them for people under the age of 21...

    A person can walk down the street brandishing a weapon and not be arrested... Guess it depends on what your definition of brandishing is....

    I have not read Ohio's constitution. What does it say about home rule?

    Wow...

    Huh, what's he talking about? If you walk around town with an AR, you'll at least be detained, and probably charged with disturbing the peace or something along those lines. And how does the liberalized CCW law affect gang members, who usually have criminal records, and juveniles, who cannot get a CCW until they turn 21 anyway?

    No one under 21 has or can get a Ohio CHL. Read the law before you open your mouth, Mr. Mayor.

    While open carry is indeed legal in Ohio, "brandishing" or inciting panic" is certainly chargeable if warranted. I really doubt that the Cleveland PD doesn't know this and already act accordingly.

    Cleveland, the mistake on the lake.

    Why can't we get a mayor in this town who has a lick of common sense?

    I'll be doing my part writing to these dictators.

    I don't live Ohio but I am in a tricky position when it comes to things like this. I am 19 years old and thus am allowed to posses both long arms and pistols. I can open carry my handgun all day long but cannot apply for a concealed permit until I am 21 next November. I can buy ammo by the case for my long arms, and yet have to let an "adult" buy my pistol ammo. No offense to my elders, but the second amendment is so we could fight an unjust government that infringed upon our civil rights. Almost every war has been fought by mostly 18-25 year old men. If the government decides that my rights do not matter as they already have in terms of handguns, automatic weapons, and even alcohol, I see no reason to support that government with either my money nor my life.

    In Ohio, those under 21 may not legally possess pistols in any case. This proposal would change that to "any firearms" instead of "pistols".

    Why can't Mayors be happy with legislating new garbage routes? Urban centers get ridiculous legislative powers. :barf:

    I don't live in Ohio."The right of every citizen to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person, or property, or in aid of the civil power when thereto legally summoned, shall not be called in question, but the legislature may regulate or forbid carrying concealed weapons."-Mississippi Constitution "Subject to the provisions of Section 45-9-53, no county or municipality may adopt any ordinance that restricts or requires the possession, transportation, sale, transfer or ownership of firearms or ammunition or their components"
    Gotta love this state.

    Well then you should resent the fact that your government won't let me buy you a drink which I would love to do but can't.

    And I do. While I support the overall goal of MADD, I cannot condone their actions. It's the constant battle of Paramedic vs. Libertarian.

    I do see it as a circumvention of the Constitution that the federal government can coerce the states into bending to their will by withholding funds that should have been raised and distributed in the state to begin with.

    But that's a wholly different discussion. I digress.

    The Mayor says the state's recently passed conceal carry law leaves local police powerless to go after some of those young adults toting guns

    The vast majority of gun crimes are committed by those who did not or could not qualify for a CCW as they usually have long criminal rap sheets. These crimes are in most cases committed with stolen weapons to boot.

    What a maroon.

    Every new mayor of Cleveland seems to be more of an absolute blathering idiot than his (her) predecessor. (Anyone remember heronor Mayor Jane Campbell?? The one that laid off all the Police/Fire/EMS folks??)

    Mayor Frankie has tied up a bunch of Cleveland City money in (at best) a frivilous lawsuit challenging the pre-emption clause of the recently amended Ohio CCW law.

    Why is it that those "In Charge" ALWAYS want to disarm those that have obsolutely NOTHING to do with crime?

    I would bet a years salary, that every one of the shooters in those incidents had a prior criminal record which would have made them illegal to possess firearms already.

    Any takers?

    Go figure.

    It's about power, and dissarming law abiding citizens...

    Maybe the thugs give him a cut of their action for creating a slew of fresh victims.

    I posted a comment here after I caught the Fox version of it. http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=301833

    I wrote in regarding the information Jackson was spouting being incorrect. There is no reason for this law and as an Ohioan, I urge my fellow Ohioans to rise up now and write the legislators before this gets any traction at all.
