Ohio Senator Matt Dolan introduces new gun bill

Senator Matt Dolan whose district spans several Cleveland suburbs introduced Senate Bill 357. He claims Ohio's approach to gun laws doesn't have to be all or nothing. He says his bill is intended to grant protections for Second Amendment rights while providing a means for taking guns away from an individual deemed by a judge to be mentally ill, and a danger to themselves or others. Dolan's bill would also require a co-signer for anyone 18 to 21 to purchase firearms, and make a buyer in a private gun sale get written clearance from a county sheriff, to confirm they're eligible to buy a gun.
