Thursday, February 15th, 2018
COLUMBUS – Ohioans For Gun Safety, the grass roots coalition working to bring common sense background checks for gun safety to our state, released the following in response to the tragic shooting at a Florida school yesterday.
“We join the nation and the world in sending our thoughts and prayers to the families and their loved ones in the aftermath of this tragic shooting in Florida. At the same time, those put in a position of trust and power to lead must act now. In the absence of leadership, Ohioans For Gun Safety is committed to building a true grass roots movement in our state to go directly to voters to adopt common sense background checks for gun safety,” said Dennis Willard, spokesperson for Ohioans For Gun Safety.
Ohioans for Gun Safety is a grassroots organization exploring common sense background checks for gun safety in Ohio. As Ohioans and Americans, we understand that we must balance our rights and our responsibilities in order to stop gun violence and gun tragedies. By listening to and having conversations with Ohioans about their experiences and ideas, our goal is to build a broad-based, inclusive coalition that will make our state a safer place for our children and grandchildren through common sense background checks for gun safety.
