Hagan, Foley: Pro-life gun bill appropriate in wake of anti-abortion proposals

Two Democratic state lawmakers want gun businesses to disclose the potential health risks of firearms ownership before completing sales to consumers.

State Reps. Bob Hagan of Youngstown, D-58th, and Mike Foley of Cleveland, D-14th, say their “pro-life” gun legislation is appropriate, given disclosure requirements added by Republicans to the biennial budget bill this week that will affect women seeking abortions.

“Each year in Ohio, over 1,000 people lose their lives from firearm-related injuries, and thousands more end up in hospital emergency rooms,” Hagan said. “And yet we have no laws to ensure individuals buying guns in our state really understand that capacity for serious injury or even death that a firearm holds.”

He added, “This is a pro-life bill. It’s protecting life as we know it.”
