OH: Lawmaker Reintroduces "Stand Your Ground" Self-Defense Bill
Submitted by:">Mark A. Taff

A similar bill was introduced last year, after a veto fight with former Gov. John Kasich resulted in a stripped down version that eventually passed.

Rep. Candice Keller (R-Middletown) said her bill would allow a person to use deadly force without retreating if they’re protecting themselves or others against real or perceived threats, even in public, and would protect them from having to defend themselves in court. Keller says 36 states have some form of a “stand your ground” law.

"[T]here’s no evidence that these laws deter crime."

Now, get this straight: Crime deterrence is a desirable side-effect, but the purpose is to stop violent crime against oneself, personally, in real time.

And that trumps everything else.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
