    Castle Doctrine In Ohio (Merged)

    It appears that a castle doctrine legislation is moving forward in Ohio. I do not understand the process but on 4/16 the senate approved a castle doctrine document, HURRAAAAHHh.
    What and how this moves toward law I don't know, but maybe someone here can fill us all in?

    still needs to go through the other side of the state congress, and then it'll take a while (usually like 90 days) to take effect, but tis still a step in the right direction.

    Texas castle doctrine rocks,not only does it take away the geez if i shoot an intruder in my house can i be prosecuted hesitation,but if you are justified no civil lawsuit from family members.I recall reading about burglars suing homeowners for shooting them and winning the lawsuits in some states in past years,but not in Texas

    If Ohio does it like other states, the bill must now go to the House. If they pass it without changes it goes to the Govenor for signing into law. If the House made changes it goes to a joint committee to iron out the differences in the 2 versions. Once that is done both House and Senate must pass again. Then it goes to the Govenor for signing.

    Archer51 is correct. There WILL be changes in the House. So we've got a ways to go on this one.

    Thumbs up Castle Doctrine in Ohio.....!

    Got this from my dad who got an emal from the NRA:

    OHIO: Ohio's "Castle Doctrine" Legislation Passes Out of Senate! On Wednesday, April 16, Senate Bill 184, Ohio's "Castle Doctrine" bill passed out of the State Senate unanimously. SB 184 now heads to the Ohio House for consideration. SB 184 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. Please contact your State Senator TODAY and thank them for voting for this important piece of legislation.

    SO... that's great! anyone familiar with passing legislation, what are the next steps that this bill would go through before becoming law? Apparently it needs to be approved by Ohio's House Representative, but what then? How long might it take before we know whether it will have made it or been refused? Thanks...

    I was at 3 different committee hearings to testify for the S.B. 184. Now I plan on going to EVERY hearing on the House side. You can't believe the kooks that testify against self defense. It's amazing. Every person needs to check out what actually goes on so they can be better informed as to the process. Without someone watching our rights, not just second ammendment, can erode quickly. Case in Point. When the Senate bill pass NO mention was made of it in the Dayton Daily News. It was carried in a very short blurb in the Cleveland paper, so you see folks we have to keep an eye on the fourth estate as they are out for their own agenda.
