COLUMBUS – Today, Rep. Jessica E. Miranda (D-Forest Park) observes the third anniversary of the Dayton, OH shooting that killed 9 and injured 17 Ohioans. 

“I mourn with our state in our loss of our fellow Ohioans,” said Rep. Miranda. “As the co-founder of the Gun Prevention Caucus, tragedies like this is why we must work every day to pass commonsense gun safety legislation. We owe it to Ohioans to take action to reduce gun violence and keep our kids and communities safe, our thoughts and prayers are no longer enough.”
