Ohio Lawmaker Behind Gun Control Bill Finds Threatening Messages In Mailbox

(ONN) – An Ohio state representative who has proposed gun restrictions says he found several threatening memes printed out and placed in his mailbox.

Rep. Casey Weinstein is a Democrat from Hudson.

He says he has received many angry messages since sponsoring a bill that would prohibit people from possessing a large capacity magazine for a firearm.

Weinstein says his proposal was in response to the Dayton shooting in August that killed nine people.

He says that the memes he found in his mailbox were mostly anti-Democrat and that some were threatening.
