On Sunday, June 10, 2018 from 10:15AM until 11:15AM in the St. Malachi Church Hall, Dave Eggert of Ohioans for Gun Safety will speak about his organization and its effort to reduce gun violence in Ohio by closing background check loopholes. This forum, which is part talking and part listening, is open to the public and is a critical step toward developing a broadly supported, common sense background check ballot initiative to take to Ohio voters for approval. Consider:
- Ohio’s rate of gun deaths increased 25% in two years.
- Ohio’s gun death rate is now above the national average and getting worse.
- 20 States have enacted common sense background checks on gun sales – which make a difference.
- Ohio could join them by using the ballot initiative process to bring bring common sense background checks to Ohio.
