By signing SB 175, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is saying that there are no rules for protecting yourself as long as you feel threatened.
“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. I am very disappointed, however, that the legislature did not include in this bill the essential provisions that I proposed to make it harder for dangerous criminals to illegally possess and use guns.” Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine
In reality what the Governor of Ohio has done by signing SB175 is not only make it ok for the police to shoot and murder black men, but now any citizen is allowed to. All that is necessary is to say, “I felt my life was threatened.”
Bearing arms to secure your home is a right and a privilege. But one must also consider how many people are walking around today with a chip on their shoulder. Everyone feels they have their own set of personal rights. Most want to be able to do whatever pleases them because that is what the leadership in this country is doing. Leadership on every level. Government, Institutions, Corporations… so why not individuals.
That is what individuals see in mainstream media. Are we headed towards a society with no rules, where everybody has the right to do whatever they want?
Imagine a football, basketball or baseball game with no rules. Of course, the game would turn out to be a complete disaster. Players would take full advantage of no out-of-bounds lines, score points any way they felt like, with no Referees to determine the win.
That’s where we are headed. Unless “WE” care enough to start to read everything.
The old saying that “knowledge is power” holds true. “WE” need to care enough to hold our leadership accountable. How? Follow the money. If you can’t follow the money, make them show it to you!
Budgeting used to involve a ledger showing when money went out and came in; expenses and money received. The ledger had to be balanced daily, monthly and yearly. At the end of the day, month, or year it was mandated to be reconciled.
Not anymore. Look up “DARK” money on the internet. Until we ask the right questions to the right people we are heading down the path of no rules.
