Gun Control In Ohio (Opinion Letter)
As an advocate for domestic violence awareness and prevention, I want to acknowledge all of the dedicated, bipartisan legislative accomplishments that our Ohio Congressman and Senators have done and continue to do to help prevent gun violence in our communities. In 2016, Ohio enacted a law prohibiting violent career criminals from buying, possessing, or carrying a gun. Ohio also requires a firearm owner to report the loss or theft of any firearm in the person’s possession or under the person’s control.
Unfortunately, we still need an increase of bipartisan, legislative support on requiring background checks on private sales and the prohibiting of transfer or possession of assault weapons, 50 caliber rifles, or large capacity ammunition magazines. Please consider examining these other issues to help prevent gun violence in Ohio. We must never forget of the tragic event that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012.
