On July 13, the Ohio Supreme Court unanimously, and without comment, dismissed a lawsuit that challenged the state`s new Right-to-Carry law.
The suit, filed by the Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence, was based on the implausible claim that county sheriffs do not have the resources to conduct thorough background checks of permit applicants.
Representative Bill Seitz (R-30), a member of the House Criminal Justice Committee, was pleased with the court`s dismissal. "I am satisfied that Ohio took the constitutional and lawful first steps toward joining 44 other states [that have some type of carry laws]."
