“Despite pleas from Republican Gov. John Kasich and recent, high-profile shootings, Ohio’s GOP lawmakers would rather pass a “stand your ground” proposal than the governor’s ideas on gun control,” the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Tuesday. “The bill would eliminate a legal requirement to try to retreat before shooting in a public place.”
Naturally prosecutors are against it because it would complicate their jobs and make it harder to bring charges against defensive gun uses. And even though votes exist in the legislature to override it, Kasich says he plans to veto the bill.
