OBERLIN, Ohio — A local law banning guns in parks is no more, but the fight is not over yet.

Monday night, the Oberlin City Council voted in favor of rescinding a city ordinance that bans weapons in city parks.

The law conflicted with the state’s conceal carry law that allows citizens who are licensed to carry a weapon in public places.

But the issue isn’t over yet.

Council also voted unanimously in favor of taking the issue to the state and asking for the right to supersede the state law and ban the guns again.

Council will meet again in October.
