Governor DeWine Proposes "Red Flag" Law For Gun Sale Background Checks

He also wants more access to mental health treatment

A crowd of frustrated mourners yelled at Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine on Sunday night to "do something" about gun violence. DeWine said he heard them.

“Some chanted ‘do something,’ and they were absolutely right," DeWine said at Tuesday morning news conference. "We must do something, and that is exactly what we are going to do.”

DeWine unveiled several proposals Tuesday morning aimed at curbing gun deaths. Among them: a "red flag" law, background checks for most firearm purchases, more access to mental health treatment and harsher penalties for felons with guns and straw purchases.
