Ohio: Self-Defense Enhancement Legislation Scheduled for Committee Hearing

Posted: 11.13.17 02:21 PM

Tomorrow, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be accepting proponent testimony on important self-defense legislation. *Senate Bill 180, sponsored by state Senators Joe Uecker (R-14) and Jay Hottinger (R-31), would expand circumstances under which a person has no duty to retreat before using force in self-defense.* Further, this bill would shift the burden of proof to the state, so the state would have to prove beyond reasonable doubt that a person charged with an offense that involved the use of force against another, did not use that force in self-defense.* Senate Bill 180 would also reduce certain concealed handgun offenses to minor misdemeanors and eliminate the mandatory posting of signs that warn against the conveyance of a deadly weapon onto specified premises.
