The 99-member Ohio House of Representatives in November 2013 passed a bill aimed at strengthening the Second Amendment rights of its 11 million residents, but Black legislators and activists say a provision that is akin to the controversial Stand Your Ground laws in 23 other states has to go. They are fighting to kill the measure before it moves out of the state Senate.

Ms. Reeves heads the stateâ€™s Legislative Black Caucus and is the president of the Cincinnati National Action Network chapter. She has dubbed the provision â€śkill at will.â€ť â€śWe only have 17 Blacks in the 132-member State General Assembly so we are going to have to put boots on the ground,â€ť she said.
I like to think of it as “The War On Crime.”
