  • The Law of Self Defense, 3rd Edition provides an in-depth and informative understanding of the five fundamental principles of self defense: Reasonableness, Innocence, Imminence, Avoidance, and Proportionality, as well as many non-core but important facets of self defense law, such as defense of others, defense of property, and imperfect self defense.In addition, the book provides a deep insight into how the judicial system really works, the motivations that drive prosecutions of self defense cases against otherwise law-abiding people, and presents legally-sound self defense strategies to help you both stay alive and not be perceived as easy prey by an overly aggressive or politically-motivated prosecutor.That's a lot of value for the price of a box of ammo--and let's face it, it's not all that easy these days to even find a box of ammo! Get yourself some "legal body armor" today, with The Law of Self Defense, 3rd Edition.(If you already own The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition and want to know how the two books differ, click here.)Order it now![Product: 32652]

  • On April 30, 2016 I gave a Law of Self Defense presentation at the USCCA Expo 2016 in Atlanta, GA. A number of people have asked me for a copy of those presentation slides, and so I've made them available for order here.The presentation addressed the apparent paradox that while self-defense law is actually relatively simple, at the same time not easy.Simple, because there are only five elements to any self-defense claim: innocence, imminence, proportionality, avoidance and reasonableness.Not easy, because the hidden traps that can emerge from the interplay of these five elements, if not avoided, can result in spending the rest of your life in jail. And the only way to confidently avoid these traps is to understand self-defense law at a sufficiently high level that the traps that once were hidden or hard to see are now obvious to you.Learning self-defense law at a sufficiently high level is within the capabilities of just about anybody, but it does take some disciplined effort and resources.Through the course of the presentation we discuss the five elements of the law of self-defense, we cover some of the nuts-and-bolts of the criminal justice process, and then proceed to step through various scenarios to illustrate how easily a merely superficial understanding of self-defense law can result in the complete loss of self-defense.Subjects discussed include: self-defense as a legal defense, the trial process, the elements of the criminal charge of murder, self-defense as a "confession", how avoidance remains a relevant element even in Stand-Your-Ground states, regaining your innocence, distinguishing between an aggressor and a provoker, how to pick a qualified attorney, and more.The presentation was 45 minutes long, and the slide deck consists of 62 slides. The document you can order here are those slides, printed 6-to-a-page in black-and-white, and stapled.  This was not a full-day LOSD Seminar! Shipping is included in the price.
