Today the Ohio Supreme Court granted the motion for a stay of the court ruling overturning the ban on concealed carry in Hamilton county.

Do you have a source/cite so I can read and distribute it? I'd LOVE to hear their reasoning--it couldnt be an emergency stay "for the public safety" since they took a week and a half to grant it.

Don't the courts commonly do this kind of stuff? Like temporarily stay the results of a decision while they make the real decision? Didn't the last court do just this - grant a temporary stay and then rule the ban unconstitutional a few weeks later? I wonder if it's possiple to appeal this to SCOTUS?

As I understand it, the whole reason for this is the guaranteed right to bear arms in the Ohio state constitution. I am by no means a lawyer, but I don't think SCOTUS has any jurisdiction over issues with a state constitution.
