Skip to comments.License to kill: Proposed ‘stand your ground’ law in Ohio an invitation to violence and vigilantism
Posted on 10/10/2013 9:31:10 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Some Ohio lawmakers want to modify the states concealed-weapons law by vastly expanding the circumstances in which a person has no duty to retreat before using lethal force in self-defense. Such a stand your ground law is unnecessary. Worse, it would increase the danger of gun violence something this state and its cities hardly need.
City councils in several Ohio communities, including Toledo, Akron, Dayton, and Cincinnati, formally oppose the proposed bill. Members of the Ohio Student Association also have protested it.
Current Ohio law states that people need not retreat in their residence, their vehicle, or the vehicle of an immediate family member. Thats more than adequate, covering areas of personal domain to which American legal tradition and the castle doctrine traditionally have extended special protections and immunities.
The proposed House bill would, among other changes, extend those immunities to anywhere a person has a legal right to be a virtual invitation to violence and vigilantism. The fact that a person feels threatened, even by an unarmed person, should not become a license to kill, or a legal justification for shooting another person, anytime and anyplace.
Stand-your-ground laws sometimes disparagingly called shoot first, kill at will, or make my day have been hotly debated across the country, especially since the fatal shooing of an unarmed teenager, Trayvon Martin....

Not Joseph Goebbels just simply ignorant, uninformed or purposely deceitful leftist. Joseph Goebbels had a plan (Hideous and evil) and a goal. These people just like to ride their imaginary moral high-horse and the facts be damned
In Barry’s America, it’s starting to come down to kill or be killed. Normal Americans need all of these kinds of laws we can get if we are going to survive living in a country full of feral Obamanoids.
The liberals “protect your local thug” attitude.
Hold out baits to entice your enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.

No. "Stand your Ground" laws provide incentives for sub-humans to behave more like humans, even if they don't aspire to become such.
I got news for you.
Stand your ground has been going on there all mylife.
They just give punks the rule of law as of late.
Stand your ground laws only increase the likelihood of someone getting shot if a criminal is attacking someone. Removing those kinds of people from society is performing a service.
What does one think the outcome will be when a “president” instructs people to “get in your neighbor's face” and “bring a gun”.
Spot on description. Very accurate, alarmingly so.
You have it right.
Trayvon Martins physical attack on George Zimmerman was needless and senseless.
Funny, a license to kill, killing a subhuman who attacks you or your family is all of a sudden WRONG and we should not be given the opportunity to protect ourself. Ask the editors on the toledo blade if they have protection or does anyone in thier family circle have? Hypocrite scumedia bowing to the left agenda!
The other day, Beck said that between 1950 and today, all but 2 of the "mass shootings" occurred in "gun free" zones.
Which two? All that comes to mind were the bases.
He didn’t say - I seem to recall some sniper in a tower or something some years ago.
I just love the morally superior, but I can be just as morally superior to these pricks.
The Toledo Blade to potential rape victims “Lay back and enjoy it”
Don’t go thuggin’
and there won’t be any shootin’.
After all, “it was only a whoop-ass”.
The Toledo Blade has been the home of extremist Leftists for decades. Of course they oppose allowing deadly force to be used to deal with the results of their social and urban policies.
More “blood in the streets” BS in the face of the overwhelming evidence from every other State that has rolled out the Stand Your Ground laws.
Doesn’t Ohio want lower murder rates? Rape rates? Do they want more criminals surviving their attempts to victimize others?
People used to think that the collusion between Leftist propaganda and the MSM’s Leftward tilt was the stuff of tinfoil-hattery. I think those folks are missing the bigger picture right in front of them. Almost pure agitprop coming from the MSM these days.
What's wrong with violence and vigilantism? Some people need to be on the receiving end of violence and vigilantism.
Stand your ground? More like Bring It On.
No challenge No problem!
And I am sure the Toledo Blade also thinks that women should pee on their rapists. Or maybe that is too violent for them. These people disgust me.
They want others to simply lay down their lives while they would never advise their own families to do the same.
