Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signs 'stand your ground' bill [View all]

COLUMBUS, Ohio—Gov. Mike DeWine on Monday signed a controversial “stand your ground” bill that would eliminate Ohio’s “duty to retreat” before using force in self-defense.

Senate Bill 175, fast-tracked through the Ohio General Assembly last month by DeWine’s fellow Republicans, will make Ohio the 36th state to no longer require people to retreat before they can justifiably hurt or kill someone in self-defense.

Senate Minority Leader Kenny Yuko, a Richmond Heights Democrat, said in a statement that he’s “extremely disappointed” in DeWine’s decision to sign the “stand your ground” measure.

“This is a dangerous bill that will put Ohioans’ lives at risk,” Yuko stated. “This is not what people meant when they asked us to ‘do something’ last year after the deadly mass shooting in Dayton.”
