Supreme Court Quashes Cleveland Guns Law

Featured Audio

The city of Cleveland, which has its own, stiffer gun restrictions, had challenged the state on grounds that the law intruded on the constitutionally guaranteed right to home rule. The city's ban on assault weapons was among those invalidated by the law.

The state's highest court ruled 5-2 that the state law is constitutional and did not infringe on home rule powers.
