Ohio lawmakers react to President Barack Obama's gun violence package

Published:

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown: "It's got to be comprehensive, not just guns. We've got to reinstate the assault weapon ban, we've got to close the loophole on background checks. And there's no reason for guns that shoot 20 shots at a time."

U.S. Tim Ryan, whose 13th District includes part of Portage: "The Supreme Court has repeatedly reaffirmed American's constitutional right to bear arms. I believe the best way to protect that right is for Congress to support reasonable laws and regulations which will make it harder for criminals, terrorists and the mentally ill to obtain guns."

  • Leave my guns alone. Fix the people. More kids are killed by the mother and abortion doctors than guns. Love God, and Love your Neighbor as yourself. Thou Shalt not Kill,(murder). John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do . He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
