ACTION ALERT: Tell State Senators and Representatives to Eliminate Ohio's Duty to Retreat
Identical legislation has been introduced in both the Ohio Senate and House that would repeal Ohio’s unjust law that requires victims of violent crime to retreat from attackers prior to using lethal force to defend themselves.
Senate Bill 383, sponsored by Senator Terry Johnson, and House Bill 796, sponsored by Representative Kyle Koehler, are clean, clear-cut bills that protect the right of self-defense without changing the universal and well-understood standard for use of lethal force.
With just days left in session, it is critical that Senators and Representatives hear from gun owners. Contact your State Senator and State Representative and urge them to support these bills and move them quickly.
