Self-Defense in Ohio The so-called stand your ground law in Florida has been debated in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting. In Ohio, no such law exists. Retreat, if possible, is required if a person is outside his or her home or car and perceives a threat to his or her life. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about the rights of Ohio citizens in cases of self defense. Should you be required to flee trouble if it's possible or allowed to stand your ground even if it calls for deadly force? Wednesday at 9:00 a.m.
