The Ohio House of Representatives approved a bill on Wednesday to eliminate a person’s duty to retreat before using force in self-defense.
READ the Bill HERE:
The bill passed with a vote of 62-35, despite opposition from a range of public interest groups including Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, the Ohio Prosecuting Attorneys Association and the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police.
The Ohio Senate will now have the chance to review and vote on the bill. Even if the Senate approves the bill, Ohio Governor John Kasich has asserted that he will veto any “Stand Your Ground” legislation. Kasich has called the bill “extreme” and instead favors a Red Flag Law that would allow people to petition the court to temporarily remove firearms from family members or close acquaintances who may be a danger to others or themselves.
Kasich’s successor, Mike DeWine, will take office in January 2019 and may view “stand your ground” legislation more favorably.
