We should be incredibly disappointed by Governor Mike DeWine’s about-turn and Congressman Mike Turner's inaction on ending gun violence. 

I was in the Oregon District when many friends and neighbors came together to once again demand that our leaders Do Something to address gun violence. It is unfortunate, but not surprising that our leaders caved to the gun lobby once again.

Congressman Mike Turner claims to support red flag laws, but his utter inaction on the issue since the August mass shooting in Dayton shows his true colors and his allegiances. The NRA gave Mike Turner an “A” rating and gifted him tens of thousands of dollars, which still sits in his pocket at this very moment. The blood money that stains our country and its leaders keeps them from standing with us. 

DeWine's watered-down agenda not only fails to address ending gun violence through universal background checks and red flag laws, but it wreaks of coded language from the 1994 Crime Control Act. The judicial discretion and request that police officers suddenly become mental health experts is not a solution to ending mass shootings and gun violence. We must take real action that holds sellers accountable, enacts red flag laws, and makes background checks mandatory. The voluntary print-out certificate proposal does nothing.

The STRONG Ohio plan as proposed by Governor DeWine falls short of the promises he made to Ohioans and it strengthens only our susceptibility to more gun violence. But we won’t be silent, and we won’t stop until we get real common-sense gun reforms.

We need new leaders in Columbus and in Congress who will prioritize the safety of our communities and pass universal background checks, red-flag laws, an assault weapons ban, and a voluntary buy-back program - reforms supported by the vast majority of Americans, but blocked by politicians like Mike DeWine and Mike Turner.

If we want real change, then we must make our voices heard.

Join me in telling Governor Mike DeWine and Congressman Mike Turner that this is not NEARLY enough. We must Do Something!
