Just one little "Yeah!" for today...

COLUMBUS -- The Ohio Supreme Court has upheld a 2006 state law that lifted cities' assault-weapons bans and most other local gun restrictions.

Cleveland had challenged the state on grounds that the law intruded on the constitutionally guaranteed right to home rule. The city's ban on assault weapons was among those invalidated by the law.

The state's highest court ruled 5-2 today that the law is constitutional and did not infringe on home-rule powers.

The law was passed in a dramatic showdown in 2006 between Republican Gov. Bob Taft and the GOP-controlled Legislature, which overrode his veto.

I hope Bloomberg chokes on his meal when reading this later....of course it will be appealed by the law dogs...but for now, victory is ours....
