This will do what?
The headline says it: Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson is proposing an “emergency” ordinance to limit gun purchases to one every 90 days and report all person-to-person transfers or sales of firearms to the police. Criminals rejoice!
As for everyone else, the proposed law brings city leaders one step closer to attaining the legal prerogative to regard people who are law-abiding citizens today as criminals tomorrow. If the ordinance – which Jackson describes as a “complete rewrite” of the current law – succeeds, you could be held accountable for:
Selling or owning gun replicas
Selling or owning slingshots
Selling or owning long-bladed pocket knives
Selling or buying weapons associated with the martial arts
Allowing anyone under 18 years old to use a gun
Not reporting to the police a person-to-person sale or transfer of a firearm
Not reporting to the police a stolen firearm
Loaning a gun to anyone who isn’t eligible – under these requirements, as well as State and Federal laws – to possess one.
