Ohio Democrats argue their gun legislation bottled up by GOP in legislature

Ohio’s Democratic legislators say they have repeatedly attempted to address gun violence, only to be shut out by the dominant pro-gun Republican majority in both the House and Senate.

Senate Minority Leader Kenny Yuko, D-Richmond Heights, and House Minority Leader Emilia Strong Sykes, D-Akron, pointed out Monday — following the killing of 10 people in a mass shooting in Dayton on Sunday — that Democrats have introduced six bills to improve gun safety.

Only Senate Bill 43, which would prohibit gun purchases by those convicted of domestic violence, has received a hearing, after it was introduced with bipartisan co-sponsors, Sens. Nickie Antonio, D-Lakewood, and Stephanie Kunze, R-Hilliard. And it got only that hearing, the leaders said.

A Senate spokesman said two other Democratic bills were offered hearings, but the sponsor wanted to wait until after passage of the state budget.
