Summary

As lawmakers across the country spar over how to prevent mass shootings, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R) on Tuesday announced proposals to combat gun violence two days after the attack that killed nine people in Dayton, Ohio, and shocked a country grieving another massacre in El Paso.The Republican leader called on the state legislature to increase gun background checks and pass a law on “safety protection orders” allowing the court-ordered removal of guns from people deemed a danger to themselves or others.DeWine also urged improvements to the state’s mental health resources and stricter penalties for the illegal purchase and possession of firearms, saying that many of his recommendations were already in the works but have taken on new urgency in the wake of the tragedy that struck Dayton’s historic Oregon District early Sunday morning.“Do something!” a woman shouted as DeWine prepared to speak from the podium, echoing the frustrated chants that drowned out the governor’s remarks at a Sunday vigil.The chanters were “absolutely right,” DeWine said Tuesday.
