Senate Bill 383 /House Bill 796 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, these measures expand 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 your State Senator and Representative and ask that they SUPPORT No Duty to Retreat legislation, Senate Bill 383 /House Bill 796.

Duty to retreat? What a load of Bovine Scatology! Just the kind of thing you would expect from the Buckeye state!

This is only 2020, so based on past performance, the legislature can
slow-walk this to the 22nd. century. Even then it will contain the
prerequisite watering down amendments.
