    “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,” DeWine said in a statement.

    It is sad that we even need a law that allows us to defend ourselves.
    Thank you for keeping me safe.

    I read something about this a week or two ago. The usual suspects were lamenting this as ''a license to kill black people!''.

    Its the authoritarianism of the left. "Who the fuck do you peons think you are to deal with your own problems?" That's the government's job.
