Press Conference on Rise in Gun Violence Across the Country - Speaker view
Treyvon Waddy
Open Questions:How do you all plan on urging the Biden administration to go forward with further gun control restrictions?What is your opinion on the current gun restrictions set by the Biden administration in April?What revisions, if any, would you like to see made to that order?For Nan Whaley: If you’re elected as governor for Ohio, how will you go about gun control restrictions in your state?Why do you think that homicide via gun violence in particular is increasing, while all other forms of violence are decreasing? Do you think that fact is reflective of the current political climate?How can we better delegate the police department around these problems and prevent these crimes before they happen?
