    The Ohio Supreme Court voted 5-2 against hearing the appeal of Bruce Beatty, who was convicted of carrying a concealed handgun into Toledo's Ottawa Park in protest of a city ordinance.

    I believe Ohio's new law, passed over the governor's override and which goes into effect in March, will void all those local ordinances. Beatty just protested a bit too early.

    He is filing a motion for reconsideration.


    It appears the case on which the court of appeals relied to rule against Beatty has been overruled.
