Mike DeWine

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed into law a "Stand your ground" bill on Monday after initially indicating he might veto it. The bill expands the use of deadly force in self defense situations by no longer requiring people to first try and retreat before employing such force in defense of themselves or another person when they are outside their home or vehicle.

Ohio now becomes the 36th state to enact such legislation. DeWine had previously indicated he might veto the bill if it did not include provisions that he said would make it more difficult for criminals to possess firearms. Though he did ultimately sign the legislation, DeWine expressed his disappointment by the lack of progress on gun law reform.

If you do, you may want to find an MMA gym near you.
