Cleveland’s new gun registry starts today
CLEVELAND- The city of Cleveland will begin its new program for registration of people who cannot own guns on Monday.
A city spokesman confirmed the new process will begin, even though a gun rights group has filed lawsuit to try to stop it.
The registry is a key part of a crackdown on gun violence pushed by Mayor Frank Jackson. The idea behind the registry is to keep guns out of the hands of felons.
The city said a new registration office will be set up downtown at the Justice Center. The city will release more details later on Monday.
