Dayton Mayor Endorses Effort To Put Background Checks For Gun Sales On Ohio Ballot

The group that’s collecting petition signatures to ask voters if the state should require universal background checks on gun sales says it plans to move full steam ahead. And the effort is getting a boost from the leader of Dayton where a mass shooting in August left 10 dead, including the gunman.

Last week, Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley stood with Gov. Mike DeWine as he laid out his gun reform plan. She said she was not happy that universal background checks are not part of it. Now, Whaley is endorsing the petition drive to put those on the ballot next fall.

“The only answer is stronger limitations on access to guns. 21 other states have already closed the background check loophole. It is time for Ohio to do the same. Research shows universal background checks are among the most effective steps we can take to reduce gun violence.”

Whaley says 90% of Ohioans favor background checks for all gun sales and says without the threat of a referendum, the Republican dominated General Assembly will not pass a bill to require them.

1. DeWine promised background checks

After he was booed off the stage in Dayton. He went back to Columbus, held a PC, said people are angry and they have a right to be! Promised, then reneged.

DeWine, Kasich, Husted, Yost, all one of the State House gang. Kasich makes me vomit when he pretends to be Mister Nice Guy Christian. He poured millions of Public Education money into his scandal ridded friends Charter Schools, tried to destroy Public Unions. Ther is nothing nice about him behind closed doors!

Nan Whaley should have run for Governor.

I would never trust Kasich ever again.
