Ohio Governor DeWine (R) said he would ask the Ohio Legislature to at least pass a ‘red flag’ law and look into background checks in the wake of the Dayton mass shooting. He was interrupted by a several people who shouted, “Do Something!” Shockingly, he agreed.
“We must do something, and that is exactly what we’re going to do.”
“We have an obligation to each other. If someone is showing signs of trouble or problems, we must help and we must not turn away.”
After Sunday’s massacre, DeWine tried to address a crowd at a vigil held for the victims of the shooting; he was interrupted by the same chants.

The NRA endorsed Governor DeWine in 2018 and may not necessarily agree with his new suggestion to pass a ‘red flag’ law and background checks.
In a in Carroll, Iowa, a nine year old girl held up a sign that read, “Do Something.” A passerby in a truck yelled, “Fuck you,” to her.
