U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On Wednesday, the Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee will consider No Duty to Retreat legislation, Senate Bill 383.  Please contact committee members and ask that they SUPPORT Senate Bill 383.


Senate Bill 383 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, SB 383 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 members of the Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee and ask that they SUPPORT Senate Bill 383.

It has long been a truth in Ohio, that the citizens and the constitution,
are taking a beating from both parties. It is always hoped that the NRA,
(in an effort to move away from its corporate greed type problems) might
do honor to the membership, by laying down its crusade of modulation,
in favor of an actual fight to win.

Good luck with this one. Federal courts are iffy on these matters anyway.

You should be able to protect yourself where ever you are. Drawing lines is just another form of suppression of freedom of rights as well as requiring a permit to use those rights.
