COLUMBUS — Ohio’s Republican Attorney General candidate Dave Yost followed the lead of President Donald Trump Monday with the release of a safety plan for Buckeye State schools that includes putting more firearms in the hands of teachers and staff.
“Dave Yost’s plan shows he doesn’t have what it takes to keep Ohio safe,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “Ohio needs leaders willing to do the hard work it will take to reduce gun violence in our communities. But instead of committing to the job, Yost’s plan puts more guns in our schools and shifts responsibility for safety to education employees. We can do better.”
