Ohio Governor Dewine Signs ‘Stand Your Ground’ Law After Suggesting He’d Veto It

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed a “Stand Your Ground” bill into law on Monday, backing off his threat to veto the measure after Ohio lawmakers declined to pass his recommended gun control proposals.

The Republican-backed bill, SB175, removes the “duty to retreat” requirement before a gun owner can use lethal force in self-defense. Legislators attached the controversial measure to a bill that grants civil immunity for deaths or injuries from handguns, before passing it during the lame-duck session.
