Stand Your Ground Law in Ohio?

Stand Your Ground Law in Ohio?

You’re walking out of a convenience store late one night after a brutal day at work.

Hearing footsteps pounding on the pavement behind you as you walk to your care, you rush to try to get in, lock your door and speed off.

But before you can get there, you feel a hand reach for your throat.

The good news is, you’re armed, you’re trained, and you’re ready to do whatever it takes . . .

But the bad news is, under existing Ohio Law — regardless of just how bloodthirsty the thug attacking is — you’d better be ready to go to JAIL if you dare use a gun to defend yourself.

This is a travesty that MUST be stopped.

That’s why I’m counting on you to please click and submit your Stand-Your-Ground petition IMMEDIATELY.

As you’ll see, this petition urges your State Representative and State Senator to cosponsor and vote to pass the Ohio Stand-Your-Ground Bill.

A similar bill passed the Ohio State House in 2013, only to die silently in the Senate without so much as a vote.

But with your help today, I’m hopeful we can finally pass this critical bill into law!

If passed, the Ohio Stand-Your-Ground Bill would simply state that law-abiding Ohio gun owners can defend themselves against criminal attack without fear of being targeted by an anti-gun prosecutor.

The truth is, nearly every state in America requires prosecutors to disprove a self-defense claim in order to convict a law-abiding gun owner for standing up against criminal attack.

But in Ohio, the burden of proof rests on YOU to prove you acted reasonably!

That’s why some experts say Ohio may have the WORST self-defense law in the country.

Every year — from Cleveland, to Columbus, to Youngstown, to Cincinnati — law-abiding gun owners are prosecuted for simply defending themselves!

I’m sure the gun-grabbers think to themselves, “that serves you right!”

After all, whenever some thug commits some horrific crime, don’t the gun-grabbers always rush to place blame — not on the criminals themselves — but on law-abiding gun owners?

So is it really any surprise they’ve written Ohio law to protect criminals first — even when it’s your safety at stake?

I don’t know about you, but I believe the law should put the interests of law-abiding Ohio citizens ahead of common thugs and criminals.

I can tell you the LAST thing you want to be worrying about in a situation where there are lives on the line is the “good will” of some anti-gun prosecutor or judge.

A vast majority of Ohioans feel the same.

Despite this, gun-grabbers have so far succeeded in derailing passage of Stand-Your-Ground.

But with your help today, I believe those days are numbered.

If you and I can turn up the heat once again, I believe we can FORCE every member of the Ohio General Assembly on record for or against Stand-Your-Ground ahead of the 2018 elections.

Just forcing a vote on Stand-Your-Ground legislation puts you and me in a win/win situation.

That’s because there’s no vote the gun-grabbers in BOTH parties fear more.

After all, many state legislators love to campaign as “pro-Second Amendment.”

But once elected, they work behind the scenes to stab law-abiding gun owners in the back and derail pro-gun bills like Stand-Your-Ground.

As a result, Guns and Ammo Magazine reports that there are only 15 states with worse gun laws than Ohio after taking all of our gun laws into account.

The good news is, if you and I force public, roll-call votes in both houses of the General Assembly, ALL the gun-grabbers in BOTH parties will finally be exposed.

Either you and I will get the votes we need to pass Stand-Your-Ground. Or gun-grabbers pay the price in the next election.

Second Amendment supporters will make sure of it.

But this effort cannot wait a moment longer.

Turning up enough heat on the Ohio General Assembly to FORCE them to act is going to take critical resources.

So in addition to submitting your signed petition, won’t you please agree to send your most generous contribution right away?

Your generous contribution today will help Ohio Gun Owners turn up the heat on the General Assembly with a massive grassroots program, including:

>>> Generating 100,000 petitions from all over Ohio insisting the General Assembly pass Stand-Your-Ground;

>>> Using email, social media and Internet ads to mobilize an additional 30,000 Ohioans from all over the state;

>>> Working the blogs and granting media interviews to explain exactly why Stand-Your-Ground would make Ohio freer and safer;

>>> Paying for hard-hitting radio, newspaper and even TV ads to ensure politicians are feeling the most heat right before they’re forced to vote.

This is the type of plan it will take to finally make Stand-Your-Ground a reality in Ohio.

Before you know it, the 2018 election season will be here, and I’m counting on you to help me FORCE the General Assembly on record on Stand-Your-Ground.

So won’t you please click the image below and submit your Stand-Your-Ground petition right away?

Ohio Gun Owners

P.S. Guns and Ammo Magazine reports that there are only 15 states in the U.S. with worse gun laws than Ohio! A big reason is our lack of a Stand-Your-Ground Law.

If passed, Stand-Your-Ground would simply state that law-abiding Ohio gun owners can defend themselves against criminal attack without fear of being targeted by some anti-gun prosecutor.

So please click and submit your Stand-Your-Ground petition along with your most generous contribution of $1000, $500, $250, $100, $50, $25 or whatever you can afford IMMEDIATELY!
