Gov. Mike DeWine continues to defend his "STRONG Ohio" gun legislation proposal, details of which he released Monday.

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley is reacting to Gov. Mike DeWine’s proposed changes to state gun laws. The governor unveiled details of his so-called STRONG Ohio bill Monday afternoon in Columbus.
