LANSING, Mich. — It's been more than two months since the mass shooting in Ohio left nine people dead and more than two dozen hurt.

Ohio's Governor is set to introduce legislation to address gun violence on Monday.

After the shooting, Governor Mike DeWine threw his support behind expanding background checks.

The Red Flag law would increase penalties for gun crimes and improve access to mental health treatment.
