Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Many millions of law-abiding citizens carry concealed firearms for self-defense and tens of millions more have guns in their home for the same purpose.

Too often, however, these armed citizens have only a superficial understanding of the laws that govern the use of force in self-defense—and much of what they do know is simply wrong.

The Law of Self-Defense, 2nd Edition,” ( http://tiny.cc/0ob18w ) authored by attorney Andrew F. Branca and published in 2013, provides the lawfully armed citizen with a comprehensive yet easy to understand guide to the self-defense laws of all 50 states.

Importantly, it also enables the reader to develop a personalized and legally-sound self-defense strategy.

While rich in detail—the book’s tables contain controlling statutes, court cases, and jury instructions from all 50 states—the book avoids over-complexity by structuring itself around the five fundamental principles of the law of self-defense: Innocence, Imminence, Proportionality, Avoidance, and Reasonableness.

These five fundamental principles provide a straightforward conceptual framework that demystifies the otherwise overwhelming complexity of the law of self-defense. The book also instructs on mental tools—such as the AOJ Triad and OODA Loop—that enable the simultaneous tactical and legal analysis of potential threats in real time.

Also covered in detail are defense of property (both highly defensible and personal property) and defense of others (both family and strangers), and the considerable legal risks associated with both.

The final chapter of the “The Law of Self Defense” ties together all of these legal and cognitive concepts to enable the reader to develop a legally-sound self-defense strategy customized to their abilities, circumstances, and priorities.

The author, Andrew F. Branca, is an attorney in his third decade of practicing law, He is a long-time expert in the law of self-defense having published his first book on the subject in 1997. Andrew has been a competitive shooter since his youth, and today is a Master-class competitor in IDPA.

Andrew is a guest instructor at the SigArms Academy, a contributing author to Combat Handguns magazine, and conducts Law of Self Defense Seminars in every state. He frequently blogs on self-defense law issues at his Law of Self Defense blog (www.lawofselfdefense.com) and elsewhere.

“The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition” is available directly from the Law of Self Defense blog (www.lawofselfdefense.com), Amazon.com (print & Kindle), Barnes & Noble (print & Nook), and other book sellers.
