OHIO’S STAND YOUR GROUND LAW MUST BE STOPPED
Ohio lawmakers are advancing Stand Your Ground — a dangerous and racist policy known for helping white shooters avoid prosecution and putting Black Americans at further risk of gun violence.
Stand Your Ground laws encourage the escalation of gun violence in avoidable situations and do not deter crime. HB 381 would allow a person to shoot to kill another person in public, even if there is a safe and clear way to walk away from the danger. This racist policy is associated with increases in gun homicides and disproportionately impacts communities of color.
