Governor Mike Dewine proposed a 17-point plan to reduce gun violence in the wake of mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso, Texas.
The plan includes expanded background checks, “Red Flag Laws” and other priorities.
The governor’s version of the “Red Flag Laws” would allow judges to confiscate guns from people who present a threat to themselves or others.
This shift from the usual position of Ohio GOP leadership comes after his address was drowned out by chants of “Do Something” at the Dayton shooting vigil.
