On Politics: Trump to Visit Dayton and El Paso

After the Dayton shooting, Gov. Mike DeWine of Ohio wants to pass a law making it easier for the police to seize guns from people deemed dangerous. He is also investing in psychological services for schoolchildren and ways for students and teachers to report potential threats.

As nationwide anxieties increase in the wake of the shootings, congressional Republicans are coming together to propose gun control legislation called red flag laws. If signed into law, they would be the most significant gun safety legislation enacted in 20 years.

While several 2020 presidential candidates have already rolled out plans to address gun violence, others endorsed new policies this week. Here’s what the Democratic candidates have proposed.

International reactions to previous mass shootings focused on the pervasiveness of guns in the U.S. But in the days since the Dayton and El paso attacks, attention has shifted to the toxic mixture of racism, nationalism and terrorism.

The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee filed a lawsuit against California officials, challenging a new law requiring presidential candidates to release five years of tax returns in order to be placed on the state primary ballot in 2020.
