Campbell advances measure to ban gun stores in residential areas

Published: Sun, September 5, 2010 @ 7:33 p.m.


City council passed to a third reading a proposed ordinance that bans gun stores in residential areas.

The council advanced the legislation at a recent meeting.

After one more reading and council approval, the ordinance will be adopted.

The ordinance bans the commercial sale of guns and ammunition and other weapons. It will be a new section of the city’s planning and zoning code.

The city was sued by Ohioans for Concealed Carry after it passed an ordinance banning the sale of guns citywide last year.

The ordinance went against Ohio laws, and the city’s law director recommended it be repealed. The council did so shortly before the suit was filed.

Law director Mark Kolmacic told council that Ohio law allows a gun ban in residential areas.

You better be carrying when you live or visit Campbell. Having gun stores in the residential areas makes sense. Instead of working on the financial troubles in Campbell, council wastes their time on this?

What dumb donkey proposed this stupid ordnance? Is someone afraid of a approved BATFE licensed firearms dealer selling from his/her home? Does some bozo think this is a source of illegal firearms sales? People/politicians who think this is good need to get a grip on reality...

What next, ban on balloon salespeople because of the potential of getting high on helium? What about vitamin salespeople because of the natural stimulants? Did anyone forget about home based lawn care businesses? (ammonium nitrate, a common fertilizer, is explosive when mixed with another ingredient. Don't forget about computer programmers/developers who can build porno sights from their home.

What a bunch of rejects in Campbell...

And the 3 ring circus continues. It doesn't matter what the mayor wants or what the residents want, it only matters what council wants. Our city doesn't need a mayor--------we have an almighty council. They know what is best for us.

LOL, I agree with you about asking Juanita Rich if she approves of this. After all, she thought it was appropriate to hold a gun rally in a park where children were playing and cleaning up their baseball field!! Lots of people carrying lots of guns, 20 feet away from children.

steelermom, get your facts straight, It was Mayor Krinos that moved the rally to the park. And unless I missed something the fact that guns were present really was a non issue, in fact that park was probably one of the safest places in Cambell that day.

steelermom, are you serious. Do you honestly believe those children were in danger because law abiding citizens who have had a background check and safe gun handling training were exercising their right to arm themselves? You need to wake up and realize that criminals will be armed no matter what stupid laws your council decides to pass, just like those businesses that post "no guns" do you think criminals see that sign and turn the other way? no, it tells them "come rob me, because i cant protect myself!"
