Columbus city officials have announced that they intend to pass laws that will reform the process in which guns are sold to consumers, including banning bump stocks, and banning the sale of guns in residential areas. “Today we are taking local action to reduce gun violence in Columbus,” says Mayor Ginther. The plan outlines multiple steps the city intends to take to reduce gun violence, including the prohibition of dangerous weapons accessories, reenacting city weapons codes, and even reducing, or even outright eliminating, the amount of imitation/toy guns available for sale to everyone. In addition to the steps officials intend to take to reduce gun violence, the plan also details homicide and assault, domestic violence, and arson and other similar offenses.
