U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, the Ohio Legislature passed legislation that was amended to include No Duty to Retreat, Senate Bill 175.  This important self-defense measure now heads to the desk of Governor Mike DeWine for his signature.  Please contact Governor DeWine and ask him to sign Senate Bill 175 into law.


Senate Bill 175 strengthens Ohio’s self-defense laws by stating that individuals have no duty to retreat from a place that they are lawfully present before using force in defense of themselves or others.  Previously, the law only applied to residences and vehicles, however, this measure expands that to allow for law-abiding gun owners to be able to defend themselves without being required to retreat from any place they are allowed to be.

Again, please contact Governor Mike DeWine and ask that he SIGN No Duty to Retreat legislation, Senate Bill 175.

While I no longer live in Ohio, I hope the law passes. Do I believe the law will reduce crime? No, not anytime soon. Most criminals will not care, they will continue to do what they do. Then we people defend themselves, some Soros backed DA will go ahead and drag them through court and they will need to hope they get an honest jury who follows the law and not their liberal heart strings. Either way, an honest citizen will have spent $50,000+ defending his Natural Right of Life. Yes, I am getting old and more cynical everyday.

Personally, Mike De-swine needs removed from office. He’s been playing at Governor as if he is trying to straddle the fence and get Chummy with the skank in Michigan. Should he sign the Bill? Absolutely, and he better…. Do I trust that swamp pig to do it? Not really The big changes in the law at least how I read it stem from two key changes. First, in court proceedings how and where the court or jury must look to ascertain a verdict, namely away from an automatic affirmed defense that the accused must show evidence to justify their stance.… Read more »
