Brown co-sponsored the Students, Teachers and Officers Preventing School Violence Act with numerous senators from both sides of the aisle, including republican senators Orrin Hatch and Mitch McConnell. The bill will provide grant to train school personnel, students, and law enforcement in proven practices to identify signs of violence.  Plus also provides funding to improve school security. 

Brown says this legislation is just one part of the solution, the other is more extensive background checks during gun sales.

“So the people who are predisposed  to violence that maybe had various kinds of domestic violence charges against them or mental illness that might have resulted in violence" says Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown.   "Those were the kind of things that you would find with an extensive background check to deny someone the purchase of a gun for that.”

Brown says there are people on the terrorist watch list that can not fly on a plane, but  can get a gun, and extensive background checks is a common since idea that could prevent those kind of sales from happening.
