Governor Kasich Says Security In Cleveland Is Top Concern

Statehouse News Bureau
Governor John Kasich

Gov. John Kasich says the mass shooting in Orlando shows the importance to make sure there are safety measures in place at places where large crowds gather.

Kasich says safety will be a concern for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July. He says will be talking to the Highway Patrol about how to increase security.

“Part of it has to do with an ability to have better exits planned in all of these buildings. This is kind of a reality of where we are and we are obviously going to have to step up our game around this.”

Kasich says he doesn’t want to have a knee jerk reaction where gun control is concerned. But Kasich says while gun laws are more of a federal issue, this is a problem that requires a comprehensive approach.
