DeWine Introduces Gun Violence Prevention Legislation

The governor laid out a 17-point proposal

This week, Governor Mike DeWine introduced a package of legislative proposals he hopes will reduce gun violence in Ohio. Much of the legislation is focused on treating mental health and tightening existing firearm legislation.

Called the "STRONG Ohio" bill, the package of legislative proposals is designed to walk a tight rope, appealing to both gun-rights advocates and gun-violence prevention advocates.

"Nothing we are doing places new restrictions on a law-abiding citizen from owning a gun," said Lt. Governor Jon Husted. "These proposals are focused on keeping guns out of the hands of people who are prevented from owning a gun by enhancing law enforcement's ability to enforce current law."
