Ohioans For Concealed Carry files lawsuit against City of Campbell Ohio

Today Ohioans For Concealed Carry filed a civil lawsuit against the City of Campbell, Ohio in the Mahoning County Court of Common Pleas (Case #50 2010 CV 01487) after months of attempting to convince the City Council that their gun ban ordinance violates Ohio Law. OFCC has learned that an effort to repeal the gun ban ordinance was tabled or “sent back to committee,” supposedly at the request of the Police Chief. Ohioans For Concealed Carry has expressed to the City of Campbell on many occasions that the precedent in this matter comes from a case we already took to the Ohio Supreme Court with another obstinate municipality: Ohioans for Concealed Carry, Inc. v. Clyde

Immediately after the lawsuit was filed this letter was delivered to the law director of the City of Campbell requesting an agreement by the city that they publicly announce their intent to not enforce the law in light of this litigation.

Ohioans For Concealed Carry was invited, by the Young American Liberty group out of Youngstown State University, to attend a rally protesting the City’s adoption of this legislation on Saturday, April 17th at 2:00pm. When OFCC began to advertise the rally the city demanded the YAL group pay $2,000 in law enforcement wages for their peaceful protest. There was talk of the rally becoming a protest, which caught the attention of the Youngstown Vindicator newspaper yesterday.

The Young American Liberty organizers have negotiated that down to a much more reasonable rate, and donations raised in this discussion thread allowed Ohioans For Concealed Carry to contribute $400 to the cause since it was our presence that nearly cancelled the YAL rally they so graciously invited us to speak at. Today we advised the Police Chief on the lawful act of possessing a firearm in public in this letter faxed to his attention.-[source]
