FLASH: National Rifle Association files amicus brief in City of Cleveland v. State of Ohio preemption challenge

One week after Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray, via the Solicitor General, filed a strong merit brief in support of Ohio's "preemption" law, R.C. 9.68, the National Rifle Association has followed suit, filing an Amicus, or "friend of the court," brief in support of upholding state law.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation has also filed an Amicus brief arguing that the state law, which preempts local governments from passing gun control laws more stringent than state law, be upheld.

The City of Cleveland v. State of Ohio case is now pending before the Ohio Supreme Court. Cleveland is challenging the constitutionality of a state law which was enacted via HB347, which passed with overwhelming support in December 2006 over Governor Bob Taft's veto.
