Except as specifically provided by the United States Constitution, Ohio Constitution, state law, or federal law, a person, without further license, permission, restriction, delay, or process, may own, possess, purchase, sell, transfer, transport, store, or keep any firearm, part of a firearm, its components, and its ammunition.
In regards to Columbus Codified Ordinance §2323.13(A)(3), the Court must side with Columbus. R.C. 2923.13(A)(2) only prohibits people convicted of a felony crime of violence from owning a firearm. It does not address misdemeanor crimes of violence. Since this is so, Columbus Codified Ordinance §2323.13(A)(3) does not forbid something that R.C. 2923.13(A)(2) allows or allow something that R.C. 2923.13(A)(2) forbids. Since this is so, Columbus Codified Ordinance §2323.13(A)(3) does not conflict with R.C. 2923.13(A)(2). Furthermore, the Court finds that Columbus Codified Ordinance §2323.13, as a whole, does not conflict with either R.C. 2923.13 nor R.C. 9.68.
