Ohio @momsdemand and #studentsdemandaction volunteers are gearing up again to fight Stand Your Ground in Ohio. The new bill would allow citizens to shoot to kill in public, giving them more leeway to shoot than our military gives soldiers in war zones. statenews.org/post/lawmaker-…
The @urbaninstitute found that when white shooters kill Black victims, homicides are 11 times more likely to be deemed justifiable. Justifiable homicide rates among people shot to death among the Black population doubled between 2005 to 2011 in Stand Your Ground states. #ohleg

When Ohioans asked @GovMikeDeWine to “do something,” they meant something meaningful. DeWine walked away from the central parts of his own plan, like a call for comprehensive background checks. With or without the him, @MomsDemand volunteers will keep fighting for good gun laws.
@GovMikeDeWine @MomsDemand .@GovMikeDeWine's bill does not require background checks on all gun sales, as he called for during his press conference in August after the mass shooting in Dayton. It creates an optional background check. #ohleg
@GovMikeDeWine @MomsDemand And the "Safety Protection Order" in @GovMikeDeWine's proposal is NOT a Red Flag law. A court could only issue a protection order when a person is already prohibited by Ohio's mental health prohibitor, formally adjudicated mentally ill, drug dependent, or an alcoholic. #ohleg

If Candice Keller blaming trans-folks for the shooting wasn't bad enough, here's State Rep (and also candidate for Ohio Senate) John Becker posting a meme branded with a 3-percenter militia logo that blames shootings on a lack of school prayer & spanking, we think.

John Becker, who thinks lack of school prayer leads to mass shootings, recently suggested he needed a gun because women were mad about a bill he introduced to ban birth control #OHGOP

Stand by! We’ll be live-tweeting coverage of the #OHLeg House Health Committee, and the first hearing of HB 68, a bill that would ban all abortions (without exception) after a fetal heartbeat is detected - commonly known as the #HeartbeatBill
Rep. Ron Hood opens up the hearing with sponsor testimony, noting that the Ohio House GOP has repeatedly tried and failed to pass the #HeartbeatBill into law.
Ranking member @Boyd4OH_D9 asks the #HeartbeatBill sponsors why they have prioritized this abortion ban over other family-focused policies - like paid family leave, mental health and postpartum care, domestic violence protections, and early childhood education.
