Proposals to reduce gun violence

reduce gun violence

The Ohio governor’s office has proposed a series of legislative reforms to address gun violence and increase mental health prevention and treatment to better protect Ohioans. More than 20 reforms are on the docket, backed by Gov. Mike DeWine.

The reforms include more stringent background checks before purchasing firearms, increased penalties for illegal possession of firearms, school safety and intervention programs, more access to behavioral health services and increased social media monitoring.

Schools are now using the Know the Signs safety program to help identify potential threats of violent action and take steps to intervene. Training dates are being scheduled.
