State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) today issued a statement in response to legislative inaction on gun safety measures by the Republican-controlled General Assembly in light of the Dayton-area mass shooting that took place early on Sunday:

“This nation faces a mass-shooting epidemic, but instead of being proactive about gun safety in Ohio, state lawmakers have literally done the opposite – passing legislation that’s made it impossible for cities like Dayton and Columbus to monitor the guns on their streets and protect their citizens,” said Rep. Leland. “Just last week the Republican leadership called us back for a special session to bail out two nuclear power plants – the safety of all Ohioans should prompt an even greater commitment to act.”
