With Ohio's gun laws having remained the same since, DeWine opened his press briefing by calling on the Ohio general assembly to advance the Strong Ohio bill that was introduced last October. According to DeWine, the Strong Ohio bill is designed to protect citizens from gun violence while also protecting the rights of Ohio’s law-abiding citizens.

"We must not let the deaths of these nine Ohioans be forgotten," DeWine said.
