Cleveland mayor introduces gun offender proposal

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland’s mayor has formally introduced legislation to create a city gun offender
registry to combat violence in the city.
The proposal by Frank Jackson is meant to give police and prosecutors the weapons they need to stop
convicted felons from using guns to commit more crimes.
Jackson unveiled the legislation Wednesday along with other proposals such as prohibitions against
transferring a firearm to a known felon or improperly discharging a firearm in a park or playground.
Additional measures would require people to report lost or stolen firearms and to tell police when they
transfer firearms.
A pro-gun group calls the proposals redundant, unnecessary and possibly illegal.CLEVELAND (AP) —
