Supreme Court Quashes Cleveland Guns Law

The Ohio Supreme Court Wednesday morning upheld a 2006 state law that lifted cities' assault-weapons bans and most other local gun restrictions.
Statehouse Correspondent Bill Cohen reports.

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.
