CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland City Council has scheduled a vote for Monday on gun legislation that goes beyond current state law, a move that will likely face another round of court challenges.

Some of the elements of the legislation being pushed by the city administration include requiring private sellers to report sales to police, prohibiting the concealed carry of handguns, which state law allows and requiring a gun owner to report a lost or stolen firearm to police.

The Ohio Supreme Court voted 5-2 in December 2010 that state gun laws trump any legislation passed by municipalities in the state. That ruling was made in a challenge to Cleveland gun laws passed by council in 2006.

A mayoral spokesman declined to comment and the council president didn’t return messages seeking comment Friday.
