It seems self-defense is legal in Ohio. (But then I thought it was.) Woman shot West Portsmouth man in apparent self-defense, Scioto County sheriff says.
The restraining order expired in September. He should have considered it to be permanent.
The woman caller told a Scioto County Sheriff’s 911 dispatcher Thursday afternoon that she shot a man who had been trying to break into her Blue Creek area home.
He had been convicted of “domestic threat” – a misdemeanor – in March. The restraining order was for July through September. She was wise to arm herself.
Self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
