NEW LOSD Seminar host: Toledo, OH, Sept. 14

Hey folks,
Well for having the quirkiest self-defense laws in the US, there sure are a lot of people in OH who want to attend a Law of Self Defense Seminar. First we booked Cleveland, then CincinnatiDayton . . . and now we have a third host, in Toledo, the morning of Saturday, September 14.

Before I can commit to a third OH seminar, though, I really need a solid sense of whether we can get at least 10 attendees to come to this Toledo event (and I don’t want to cannibalize off the other two OH sites).

So, any of you folks in northern OH or southern MI (c’mon, whoever is left in Detroit, you know you need this self-defense info), use the form at the bottom of page here to let me know.  If we get 10 positive responses, I’ll launch the full-bore marketing thing.  We can fit up to 35 people in this spot, so it’s a good chance for folks to jump in once we formally commit.

Let me know, ASAP, dates are closing in.

“The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition,” covers the current state of self-defense law in all 50 states. We’ve heard from many of you, however, that you’d like to dive even deeper into the self-defense law of your particular state–to have on hand the full-text of every self-defense statute, jury instruction, and even the full-text of the most important and controlling self-defense court decisions. Fitting 50-states worth of level of comprehensive detail would result in a book that weighs 500 lbs, which is why we didn’t take that approach in “The Law of Self Defense.” Due to the great demand for this further detail, however, we have begun rolling out a series of State-Specific Supplements that do provide exactly such  comprehensive coverage of each particular state’s self-defense law. Right now these are available on a pre-publication basis at a 38% discount, with delivery of each to occur over the next 2-3 months–pre-publication customers will, as always, receive their books first, with shipment to the general public not beginning until all pre-publication customers have first been sent their books.  To see the five states we are starting with, vote for other states to be covered, or to place your pre-publication order, click here:  State-Specific Supplements.


Andrew is currently in the process of planning his Fall 2013 Seminar Tours. This time he’ll be traveling from Boston, down the East coast, and then west to East Texas., (the “Southern” Tour) as well as from Boston to Ohio. (the “Northern” Tour)  We are also launching a series of webinars, essentially identical to the seminars, but accessible over the internet. Anyone interested in hosting or attending a seminar anywhere along that route, or participating in a webinar, please see Law of Self Defense Seminars/Webinars to get more information.

Andrew F. Branca is an MA lawyer and author of the seminal book “The Law of Self Defense,, 2nd Edition” now available at and also at as either a hardcopy or in Kindle version.
