Oldman sez: "All stand the ground laws are just a reason for stupid people to kill people."

No law is reason for stupid people to kill defenseless innocent people.

The Castle doctrine or a stand your ground law is a right to life.

It's time for the public to be protected by laws, not these criminals. I think you should have the right to protect your property as well as your person. If someone comes to your property and starts vandalizing it I think you have every right to do what it takes to stop this, including shooting their sorry butts. Waiting 20 minutes for law enforcement to show up to right a crime scene report is not acceptable. When these criminals d get caught they get a slap on the wrist, or serve time watching cable TV.

The previous wording was: "For purposes of any section of the Revised Code that sets forth a criminal offense, a person has no duty to retreat before using force in self-defense, defense of another, or defense of that person's residence, and a person who lawfully is an occupant of that person's vehicle or who lawfully is an occupant in a vehicle owned by an immediate family member of the person has no duty to retreat before using force in self-defense or defense of another if that person is in a place that the person lawfully has a right to be." The changes now read: "For purposes of any section of the Revised Code that sets forth a criminal offense, a person has no duty to retreat before using force in self-defense, defense of another, or defense of that person's residence, if that person is in a place that the person lawfully has a right to be."

swager, That was my initial reaction too. However it appears that HB203 has even more aggressive wording in it. The Ohio House on Wednesday passed changes to the state's concealed-weapons law, including a "stand your ground" self-defense provision. The bill now goes to the state senate. When I took the concealed carry course we were taught that you had a duty to retreat if at all possible. A very good friend who had worked as a Youngstown police office and as a Sheriffs Deputy down in Texas said that when you have a concealed weapon, you have the ability to win any fight and because of that you should walk away if you are given the chance. I have a concealed carry permit because I refuse to be a victim, not because I feel the need to prove that someone cannot intimidate me.

Should the poll writer read a little about the laws we have? The castle doctrine works quite well here. If you attack me I don't have to run. Looks like somebody needs to take a concealed carry class to understand the world around them.
