    Postak Self-defense law proposed in Ohio

    With the present law, Ohioans have the right to defend themselves against an intruder in their homes, but some lawmakers are working on broadening that law.It is known as "stand your ground," and we have been hearing a lot about it since a national case in Florida. Ohio has the Castle Doctrine, which allows for a person who feels threatened in their home or vehicle to use deadly force without a duty to retreat. The proposed law, House Bill 203 gives people the right to use deadly force without first trying to escape or retreat anywhere they are legally allowed to be. 22 states already have a stand your ground style law on the books, now Ohio could be the 23rd.

    i'v thought since the government/administration has turned the country into a low security prison by letting all these cons/gang bangers out and all the illegal alien/cons IN , that every able bodied citizen of good standing should be required by law to open carry at all times in public.

    and i mean open carry whatever you want. SBR, full-auto ect--

    each citizen would have to qualify every year --and go through a urban combat course--LOL --have to make head shots @ 10m, 25M and 50M !!!!

    if you opt out of the program you have to pay a nice little tax! if your in the program and of good standing you get free ammo!
