What “Castle Doctrine” Is & Isn’t, And Much More, Live Broadcast

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Good morning, MONDAY! This is just a quick personal note to share the Law of Self Defense agenda for this week

First, a little anecdote from this weekend—I was doing some research for the upcoming release of our Indiana-specific Supplement DVD, launching this week, and came across a recent Indiana Supreme Court decision—a SUPREME COURT decision—in which the court repeatedly apply the phrase “Castle Doctrine” INCORRECTLY to describe two completely different legal doctrines.

The fact that even a state Supreme Court makes this kind of confusion-inducing mistake goes a long way to explaining why so much of the general public perceives self-defense law as being some amorphous, ambiguous blog of legalese, and why so many people throw up their hands and fall back on the “better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6” nonsense.

It doesn’t have to be that way, folks. Self-defense law is NOT rocket science. For Pete’s sake, there are only 5 elements of a self-defense claim. It’s just a shame that so much self-defense law is taught in such a confusing way.

In any case, I plan to make that case the Case of the Week on this week’s “Law of Self Defense LIVE Show.” So if understanding what “Castle Doctrine” REALLY means, and what it DOESN’T mean is of interest, be sure to join us.

Remember, the “LIVE Show” is every Wednesday, 2PM Eastern time, and participation is totally FREE, but YOU MUST REGISTER. If you can’t make the “LIVE Show” as it airs, we also make a FREE recording available for 24 hours. You can register for FREE access to either the “LIVE Show” or the recording here: www.lawofselfdefense.com/show

As an aside, the last few weeks we’ve really been pushing our webinar limits on the show, which maxes out at 100 participants, but LAST WEEK we simply BLEW THROUGH THEM with over 180 people registered for the show.

Which means more than 80 people who registered couldn’t actually sign into the show. My apologies to all of you who had that experience, we just had no idea the show would become that popular.

The good news is that we’ve made the decision to bump up our webinar platform to allow for a new limit of up to 500 participants.

Considering we’re offering the “LIVE Show” for FREE, I don’t even want to talk about what our increased cost is for the new webinar plan, but it will be worth it if we can continue to grow the Law of Self Defense Community—and so I’ll repeat my humble request to all of you, if you like the show, share the link http://www.lawofselfdefense.com/show on social media, on internet gun forums, with friends and family, to let the world know about the FREE “LIVE Show”—especially now that there’s room enough on the show for everybody!

OK, folks, that’s all I have for the moment.Remember:

You carry a gun so you’re hard to kill. Know the law so you’re hard to convict.

Stay safe,
