Today, Governor Mike DeWine signed Senate Bill 175 despite hubbub he may veto the act.
“I have always believed that it is vital that law-abiding citizens have the right to legally protect themselves when confronted with a life-threatening situation. While campaigning for Governor, I expressed my support for removing the ambiguity in Ohio’s self-defense law, and Senate Bill 175 accomplishes this goal. That is why I have signed this bill today.”

Noticeably absent are comments about red flag laws, refugees and primary endorsements that the two have drawn heat on lately.

Governor Mike DeWine announced his promised gun-control package Monday called “Strong Ohio.” The move caused confusion and upset among supporters of Mike Gibbon’s similarly-named political action committee, “Ohio Strong Action.” The two are not connected.
