Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has said his major priority for 2020 is to push for his anti-gun violence package in the legislature, and DeWine took that message to hundreds of people gathered from all of Ohio's counties.

2019 was a year that saw a lot of talk about bills that would lift restrictions on guns until the deadly mass shooting in Dayton turned the tables.

Lawmakers are preparing to hold more hearings on a bill that makes it easier to use lethal force as self-defense in a threatening situation.

Two months and a day after Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced he was working on a plan to address gun violence in the wake of a mass shooting in Dayton, he unveiled a bill Monday he says lawmakers will approve.
