When this is so, the use of that force is deemed not a crime, and even if the state can prove beyond a reasonable doubt each and every element of,

NEWS: Law of Self Defense Seminar, Atlanta, GA: November 16

Hey folks, We’re now just 10 days or so away from the Law of Self Defense Seminar being held by Adventure Outdoors in Atlanta GA on November 16, and I’m shocked–SHOCKED!–that not all 100 million+ American gun owners have registered.  🙂 In all seriousness, the Adventure Outdoors meeting hall is ridiculously oversized for one of

FL Lawmakers Seek to Repeal Stand-Your-Ground AND Ease Home Invasions, Kidnappings & Carjackings

Hey folks, We’ve all heard recent rumblings about some legislators in Florida seeking to make political hay by “changing” or “improving” the state’s Stand-Your-Ground law. We can now observe the text of their proposed bills for this purpose, and see that what they are actually doing is revoking Stand-Your-Ground completely–and not JUST Stand-Your-Ground, but the

VIDEO: Importance of Having Non-Deadly Tools In Your Self-Defense Tool Kit

Hey folks, Below is another of the video clips resulting from Glen Bland’s interview of yours truly–it’s a short one, less than 3 minutes.

VIDEO: US Senate Stand-Your Ground Hearings, Sen. Graham (R-SC) Shows Up (10/29/13)

Hey folks, Here’s “Republican” Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) showing up at the Stand-Your-Ground hearing in the Senate. He kinds of meanders around for 10 minutes. His only accomplishment, which I presume was inadvertent, is to set up Dr. John Lott’s knock-out punch on the childish nonsense spouted by Prof. Sullivan of Harvard and Attorney LaBahn.

VIDEO: US Senate Stand-Your Ground Hearings, Rep. Gutierrez (D-IL) (10/29/13)

Hey folks, Here’s my first video post of yesterday’s Senate hearing from one of the anti-self-defense contingent (other than, of course, Sen. Durbin, who called the meeting), US Representative Gutierrez. It’s pretty much all Progressive nonsense. The only really notable part is where Gutierrez says he is pushing legislation to ban inexpensive guns–presumably the only
