Welcome to this episode of our ONLY open-access content, our weekly News/Q&A Show. A transcript of the show is available at the Law of Self Defense Blog (http://lawofselfdefense.com/blog), with links to all relevant content mentioned.
In today’s News/Q&A Show for August 19, 2021 we touched on a broad range of questions submitted for the show, as well as questions submitted live, including:
Evidence that goes to an unlawful state of mind—e.g., “We don’t call 911!,” or a Punisher back plate on your Glock—certainly CAN be used against you in court, as illustrated in this news story of this motion by the Rittenhouse prosecutor.
- Legal implications of using a binary trigger on personal defensive weapon.
- Greater clarity of legal doctrine of “curtilage” in context of use-of-force law.
- Why absence of “self-defense insurance” for law-abiding citizens only 19 years of age?
- Legal boundary between “use” of force versus mere “threat” of force (e.g., “defensive display”).
