As­sem­bly takes up ‘red flag’ pro­posal

The Columbus Dispatch - - Front Page - By Rick Rouan

The de­bate about “red­flag” leg­is­la­tion has be­gun in the Ohio Gen­eral As­sem­bly.

Just over a month af­ter a gun­man in Day­ton killed nine peo­ple and left 27 in­jured, touch­ing off pro­pos­als from both Repub­li­cans and Democrats to curb gun vi­o­lence, the first gun bill on the docket for state law­mak­ers to con­sider fol­low­ing their sum­mer re­cess had its first com­mit­tee hear­ing Tues­day.

The bill, spon­sored by Sen. San­dra Wil­liams, D-cleve­land, would give com­mon pleas courts the power to is­sue “ex­treme risk pro­tec­tion or­ders” against in­di­vid­u­als found to be a dan­ger to them­selves or oth­ers.
