Ohio Republican Governor, Mike DeWine issued his proposals to address Ohio gun violence in the wake of the Dayton mass shooting. However the Governor's proposal does not include background-check requirements for gun sales, or a so-called "red flag" laws to restrict firearms for people perceived as threats, despite his earlier support of those ideas.
Instead, Dewine's administration detailed legislative proposals on Monday that intend to increase and improve background checks and ensure people do not have firearms if a court has deemed them to be a danger. Among other changes, the "STRONG Ohio" plan also would increase penalties for anyone who provides a gun to someone who is legally prohibited from having one, and require that certain types of protection orders and arrest warrants be reflected in state and federal law enforcement databases to ensure more accurate background checks.
DeWine said his team consulted with city leaders, lawmakers and many others and worked to produce proposals that he believes will get results, protect people's rights and be able to pass the Republican-led Legislature. So-called "red flag" laws allow a court to temporarily seize guns from people believed to be a danger to themselves or others.
