Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine faced a crowd of frustrated mourners in Dayton Sunday night, yelling at him to “do something.”
What that “something” looks like will be detailed Tuesday morning at a 9 a.m. news conference. Whether DeWine’s solutions have any hope of becoming law depends on Ohio’s GOP-controlled Legislature, which has been wary of restricting gun rights.
DeWine, a Republican who took office in January, is expected to propose a “red flag law.” These types of laws allow police and relatives to ask a judge to remove guns temporarily from individuals whom they fear will cause harm to themselves or others. The judge grants what’s called an “emergency risk protection order.”
