It is all about him, not about liberty or the Constitution, or American ideals like self-defense, and, apparently due process.
With his governorship ending Jan. 13, Kasich also signaled he would veto a gun bill headed to his desk, even after majority Republican lawmakers stripped out the controversial stand-your-ground provision that would have removed the duty to retreat unless there was no alternative to using lethal force in self-defense. Instead, he is getting a bill that primarily only changes the burden of proof from the defendant to the prosecution if force is used.
“That somehow makes the bill OK? I didn’t get that,” Kasich said. “Just with stand-your-ground being gone, how about the rest of the bill?
“When you start shifting the burden (of proof) away from somebody who does the shooting to now a prosecutor, that’s a change. I don’t know, why did they want to change that? What’s the purpose of it?”
It is called due process there Governor Gun Control.
