OH: Cleveland Mayor seeks gun offender registry, firearms rationing as part of new city ordinances

Mayor Frank Jackson announced Tuesday a plan to combat gun violence in Cleveland that would include a gun offender registry, rationing purchases and other controversial measures.

He stated in a press conference that the multi-tiered approach was designed with consultation from the city’s attorneys in an effort to overhaul existing gun regulations in the Forest City.

“We’re not going to just sit around and be helpless. We’re not going to take on the victim mentality that there’s nothing we can do. There is something we can do,” said Mayor Frank Jackson, Tuesday. Full Article

This guy has got to be a bonified idiot if he thinks a gun registry is going to do anything to curb gun violence. Just look at the sex offender registry and name one person that can say the sex offender registry saved them from a crime. It can’t be done because it doesn’t work, and a gun registry will not work either. I guess the outcome will tell us if the people in Ohio are stupid or not.

I agree with Q. However, it’s not about curbing gun violence. It’s about publicly shaming the convicted individual beyond the terms of their court-issued sentence. If the gun registry has already been deemed unconstitutional, why isn’t the sex offender registry also unconstitutional? They say it’s not a punishment, but rather a tool to inform the public of the presence of an offender and protect the children. If that’s true why aren’t the names of the sex offenders that assault family members on the public registry? Again, to protect the innocent family members. How come the innocent family members don’t get the same consideration when it comes to those who are forced to register? It’s all about the money the prison/probation industry makes.
