That’s paid for by the state from a $40 million fund approved by the legislature.
Per the #JustPowers clause of The Declaration of Independence, people can't grant powers they don't have to Gov, including legislators.
Since I can't justly extort my neighbors to fund things I want, like training for local police, the legislature cannot justly do this either.
The alternative would be to fund police training voluntarily through donations to a "training fund". Then the police funding would depend on what the local community is willing to support - not the whims of politicians.
"Law enforcers" are mercenaries hired to impose political edicts on the masses, and they are funded with money extorted unjustly from the populace.
They are predators on the people, not protectors as they are portrayed in media propaganda. Their only job is to keep the political racketeers tax slaves in-line.

DeWine said he has talked directly with the director and several members of the six-member Ohio Casino Control Commission, to which the legislature gave the job of regulating the fledgling industry.
Since neither you nor I nor anyone else may dictate whether or not people bet on sports in Ohio, we couldn't have justly granted that authority to the legislature to hand off to the made-up "Ohio Casino Control Commission". We also couldn't have justly granted any authority to "Governor" Mike DeWine.
This is simply corrupt racketeering by the most powerful gang in the state, and their "legions of enforcer" mercenaries to claim a right to impose their opinions on Ohioans when no one else can.
For those confused, it's right there in the Just Powers clause of The Declaration of Independence.
All just Gov power must be granted to it by individuals. They can't just wish power for themselves out of thin air, no matter how many legislators or voters "vote" for the wish to come true.

the belief that citizens should have the right to come together to decide what’s best for their community
What Klein overlooks is the Just Powers Clause in The Declaration of Independence.
It explains that people may only justly delegate powers to Gov that they actually have.
So one cannot, as in this case, "come together and decide" to infringe on the individual right to keep and bear arms because none of the individuals in Columbus have that power as an individual.
They can't justly delegate this power to Gov because they don't have the power themselves.

We know better than to use the force of government here.
We know it is appropriate to use Government force to prevent murder, because the Just Powers Clause of The Declaration of Independence explains that individuals can justly delegate powers to the Government that they have.
You and I may all justly defend ourselves and others against murder, so this is a power we all have. This is how we know that it is one of the rare powers that can justly be granted to Government.

Ohio Senate Democrats hope the state’s General Assembly follows the lead from Congress and enacts gun legislation that would deal with background checks, age requirements and enact a red flag law in the state
This hope runs afoul of the #JustPowers clause of The Declaraton of Independence.
Simply put, all just powers of Government must be derived from individuals, and since no individual may do these things (if they did, they would likely be charged criminally for their violent actions to do so) no one can justly grant these powers to Government.
Since it fails this test, the proposal is clearly unjust based on the test laid out in our founding documents. No party that consistently proposes imposing violent or unjust policies should be allowed to exist.
