https://www.dispatch.com/story/news/2021/04/20/ohio-republican-lawmaker-plans-reintroduce-part-gun-bill-prompted-dayton-shooting/7299842002/

A Republican bill that would temporarily take firearms from people a judge determines to be at risk of hurting themselves or others is about to be re-introduced in Ohio.

"We have got to make sure that those who show signs of violence get help before they commit acts of violence," Sen. Matt Dolan, R-Chagrin Falls, said. "If medical evaluations are complete, legal due process is complete, who can be against violent people with medical issues not having guns."

His bill, which is in the final stages of drafting, is a paired down version of the STRONG Ohio bill Dolan introduced last General Assembly in the wake of a mass shooting in Dayton that killed nine people. There's no expansion of background checks in this new bill. No increased penalties for mishandling firearms – something gun rights groups called "extreme and unfair." And no requirements for adding warrant information into state databases.

Sure, let a “judge” decide, when all judges are activists.

"If medical evaluations are complete, legal due process is complete, who can be against violent people with medical issues not having guns."

I thought the underlined is the current procedure here in Ohio.

This bill appears to be completely unnecessary.

Yep lets first try to use the current law in ORC 5122.10 and then 'violent people with medical issues' will not have access to any means of violence and will be in immediate contact with health professionals to get them the help they need to return as functioning members of society.

I am. If they're such a danger to themselves or others, they should have the right to have a jury of 12 of their peers hear evidence and make a decision. Innocent until proven guilty means just that. If the state doesn't feel confident in being able to convince 12 people of the "danger" presented by someone, then then "danger" is more likely perceived or "created by Disney Magic" than it is real.
