Ohio's Governor Backs Proposals To Prevent Gun Violence — Is It Enough?

Ohio’s governor said he’s backing a series of proposals that are intended to help reduce gun deaths in the wake of this weekend’s shooting in Dayton.

Among them are background checks for most gun purchases, stronger penalties for felons who have guns and more access to mental health treatment. But Bernard Zapor, a retired special agent in charge with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said that’s only part of the solution.

He spent more than two decades investigating violent crime with that agency. He’s now with ASU’s School of Criminology and Criminal Justice and joined The Show to talk about what can be done.
