House Democratic Leader Emilia Strong Sykes (D-Akron) today issued a statement following the governor’s press conference Monday afternoon outlining his gun safety plan:
“When the people told the governor to do something, they didn’t mean to do just anything. Ohioans want common sense gun safety. STRONG Ohio is weak. It is not what Ohioans want. More than 90 percent of Ohioans want more commonsense gun safety, not watered down proposals to appease the gun lobby.
While I applaud the Governor for making an effort, this plan falls desperately short of the comprehensive reforms necessary to keep our kids and communities safe.”
