URGENT: Ohio’s “Castle Doctrine” Vote Delayed Until Next Week!

Friday, May 23, 2008

Please Contact the Committee Members Today!

The House Criminal Justice Committee has delayed the vote on Senate Bill 184, Ohio’s “Castle Doctrine” legislation until Tuesday, May 27, 2008.  SB 184, sponsored by State Senator Steve Buehrer (R-1), would help restore the fundamental right of self-defense.  This legislation would restore the right of individuals to respond with force in defense of their lives and family, and immunize the victim from civil lawsuits by criminals or the criminal’s family.  Also up for a possible vote will be an amendment to SB 184.  This amendment contains language, which would not only prohibit firearm confiscation during a state of emergency, but would also make critical changes to Ohio’s concealed carry statute. Attempts are now being made by opponents to remove important provisions of this amendment.  Please continue to contact the members of the House Criminal Justice Committee TODAY and respectfully urge him or her to support this pro-gun package.
