A hearing about a possible permanent injunction will take place Oct. 22. If Ruehlman grants the permanent injunction, the ban will effectively be overturned.

A similar ban passed in Columbus was struck down in the courts earlier this month.

SNIP

In a 15-page motion with more than 100 pages of supporting material, the City of Cincinnati argued that a bump stock is a firearm accessory, not a component. The city also said Ohio's home rule laws for cities would be violated by overturning the ordinance.

The motion called gun violence an "infuriating crisis plaguing our country.

“The City of Cincinnati has had enough,” the motion states. “Rejecting chronic federal and state governmental inaction, the citizens of the [city], through their elected officials, have taken action.”
“A free people claim their rights, as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.”
-Thomas Jefferson, 1774

Another victory for state preemption. I'd like to read the decision but the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts doesn't allow the general public to view court documents.

A Hamilton County judge has struck down an ordinance passed last year banning bump stocks within Cincinnati city limits.

Ok now that's it has been determined they acted inappropriately, what's the penalty to the bad actors?
Acquisitions thus far:

Slingshot
Butter knife
Soda straw and peas
Sharpened pencil
Newspaper roll
water balloon (diversionary)

Yeah, I'm that good

There isn't one, really. Yes, the city will have to pay reasonable attorney fees, but the people responsible won't be held accountable.

So if a county resident :idea: were to file ORC 124.34 that wouldn't be in effect?

I may have the subset off a notch or two.

I really couldn't say, that's not an area of Ohio law I'm familiar with.

Are attorney fees ever reasonable?
