On April 20, 2015, the Cleveland City Council passed a bucket-full of gun control measures that were supported by the Democrat mayor. A big problem with them is there is much concern about whether the measures are effective or even enforceable!
Kevin Kelley (D) the City Council President made it very clear that the gun control should pass because it is a “reflection of [the] council’s values and is good public policy.” not the effectiveness of the measures. Kelley even admitted “the legislation was not designed to stop gun violence”. Listed are some of the myriad new gun control measures that were passed on April 20 to reflect the council’s “values”:
· Prohibits carrying a concealed deadly weapon or handgun, unless the person is a police officer or a person who holds a license to carry a concealed weapon.
· Requires a person who sells or transfers a gun, and who is not a licensed gun dealer, to report such transactions to police
· Creates a gun offender registry, requiring people convicted of gun crimes to register their names with Cleveland’s Safety Director..
· Prohibits the negligent transfer of a firearm to a felon or intoxicated person. more
