The laws went into effect at 12 a.m. Saturday after a Fairfield County judge denied Ohio Attorney General David Yost’s request for a preliminary injunction.
The three laws within Columbus city limits ban magazines with 30 or more rounds, criminalize straw gun sales, and penalize people who fail to properly store a firearm around minors.
Ralph Carter, founder and CEO of the non-profit organization We Are Linden, is in favor of the restrictions, saying it shows city leaders mean business when it comes to crime.
