Ohio passed Senate Bill 184 in June. It is now ok to kill an intruder in your home or car. No questions asked. (well im sure a couple questions)

Good or bad? What do you guys think?
I think its a good thing.

I didn't read the whole thing. But I love to hear when our rights are being upheld. We need to be allowed to protect ourselves. But I did not know that there wasn't a self defense law throughout the states. I think it is common sense that someone is not a threat to society when they injure or even kill someone in the duty to protect themselves or others.

That was a common misconception in Ohio. Technically you were supposed to try to flee before using lethal force. Some people arent built that way though. For many, it is instinctual to immediately defend with any force necessary. You ever scare some and they immediately take a swing? Same thing with an intruder.

yeah, that must-flee nonsense has sent more than a few innocent people to jail,
my father-in-law , one day, returned home
and found his stepdaughter's boyfriend, accused of child molestation,
sitting in his front room with a loaded 12 ga.
so he went in the other room, grabbed his own gun and walked back in,
the BF fired first, missing,
then my father-in-law fired a handgun striking the BF in the leg [a mistake by hindsight]
whereupon the BF fired again
striking my father-in-law in the face and neck,
ending the fight. he then fled.
when the legal dust settled
my father-in-law got 2 years in prison
because he didn't flee his own home
when confronted by armed man,
the law dogs considered his going into the other room
and returning with his handgun to be
'premeditation'.
the BF was not charged at all, self defense,
even though he had brought a loaded gun
into their home uninvited and unwelcome.

Even if it is somehow, if you have to pull a gun on someone, always best to use lethal force, dont just try & wing em'. Soooo many cases where people have used enough force to disable their assailant only to end up having to pay all their medical expenses, God forbid that entails long-term life support, or they become severely crippled.

If they're a threat to you or yours and it's on your soil kill the *&%kers dead or they'll end up garnishing your wages till your 95.

it is a good thing.
everyone should have the right to protect their family and property.
Lets just say if i had waited for the police to come protect me and my wife when an armed robber broke in than im sure we'd be dead:dead::dead:


God bless that second amendment.

-watch out baby!

Damn, that's is a screwed up situation.

I wonder how the outcome would have been if he had his pistol on his person when he went in his own home?
the BF was not charged at all, self defense,
even though he had brought a loaded gun
