Residents Challenge Lebanon, Ohio Ordinance Permitting Hidden, Loaded Handguns in City Council Meetings
Everytown Law, along with Lebanon-based firm Gray & Duning, represents residents of Lebanon, Ohio in their challenge to a municipal ordinance that permits the concealed carry of handguns within the Lebanon city building.
Residents of Lebanon, Ohio, represented by Everytown Law and Gray & Duning, filed a lawsuit challenging a Lebanon municipal ordinance that authorizes concealed carry during certain periods within the Lebanon city building. The Lebanon city building contains the Lebanon municipal courtroom, which also serves as the city council’s chambers. As the complaint alleges, however, Ohio law prohibits concealed carry within courthouses and buildings containing courtrooms. The plaintiff residents are asking the court for a declaration that the ordinance conflicts with state law and an injunction restraining its enforcement.
