An Open Letter to GOP Legislators on HB 585 from a fellow Republican

(OH) sheriff's office proved last week that existing law is well up to the task. From NationalReview.com: Another school shooting was prevented on Thursday when four Ohio students warned...

In November 2017, President Donald Trump, who had a record of support for gun control before his latest run for president, directed his Attorney General Jeff Sessions to have the Department of Justice to "review" whether or not bump stocks could be banned through means other the legislation.
