… the STRONG Ohio plan is a step in the right direction to help get dangerous weapons out of the hands of dangerous people and better protect our communities.

– Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley

The victims of gun violence deserve action, and a society fearful of future violence can be crippling. This bill addresses these concerns and will help make Ohio safer.

– State Senator Matt Dolan (R-Chagrin Falls)

Nothing we are doing places new restrictions on a law-abiding citizen from owning a gun. These proposals are focused on keeping guns out of the hands of people who are prevented from owning a gun by enhancing law enforcement’s ability to enforce current law.

- State Senator Matt Dolan (R-Chagrin Falls)

When I unveiled our overall STRONG Ohio plan … I committed that any legislation must be constitutional, must make a significant impact on the safety of Ohioans, and must be able to pass in the Ohio General Assembly. Over the past two months, we have met with legislators, second-amendment groups, law enforcement, mayors, the behavioral health community, and many others to ensure our bill achieves these goals. We heard their concerns, and I believe that we have come up with better legislation as a result.

- Governor Mike DeWine
