Ohio: Self-Defense Legislation Heads to Gov. Kasich’s Desk After House Concurrence

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On December 6th, the Ohio state House of Representatives passed Substitute House Bill 228 by a vote of 59 – 21. It now heads to Governor John Kasich’s desk for his signature. While the legislation was amended, Sub. HB 228 still contains important self-defense protections for the Second Amendment and Ohio’s gun owners. It is important that you please contact Gov. Kasich and urge him to sign HB 228 into law.

Among the many changes included in Sub. House Bill 228 are:

  • Placing the burden of disproving a self-defense claim on the prosecution, similar to how it is in every other state in the country
  • Critical expansion of preemption to ensure that localities do not create a patch work of gun laws throughout Ohio
  • Language updates to mirror federal law that affects certain types of firearms, such as the Mossberg Shockwave
  • Clarifies Ohio’s signage law in regards to concealed carry. These important changes simplify what has become a complicated portion of Ohio law

Again, please contact Gov. Kasich and strongly urge him to sign Substitute House Bill 228 into law.

Kasich was one of the deciding votes for the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban!
If he voted against your 2nd Amendment once, he’ll do it again!


Kasich thinks he should be president right now. After all, he was a part of the D.C. swamp before he migrated to Ohio.Everyone would be better off if he would just get out of politics and go to chasing ambulances.


Presently there are enough votes in the Ohio General Assembly to override a veto.


Kasich and Clinton should be on the same ticket in 2020. Both losers.

I don’t live in Ohio, but I don’t think Kabash is interested in anygun law except gun bans like all Demoncraps.


If he veto’s the bill, make sure we all VOTE NO on him being president in 2020.


don’t be surprised by a d-sucker veto
