"Taking Andrew's Law of Self Defense Class is not only a good idea, but an EXCELLENT idea. You are also wise to buy his book. Read it, internalize it, and keep it to the forefront whenever you even think of reaching for a gun."

Director, Lethal Force Institute

"Andrew Branca is a lawyer who has a knack of explaining the law so that it is readily accessible to everyone. Having a gun when the police aren’t there to protect you can keep you alive, but understanding the material in this book can keep you out of jail to continue enjoying that life.”

President, Crime Prevention Research Center

“I wish all my clients had learned from Andrew before they found themselves in a potential self-defense situation. What you learn can mean the difference between going to jail or going home.”

RORY MILLER

"Andrew Branca’s Law of Self Defense is the best treatment of the subject I’ve seen. The counselor doesn’t shy away from the complexities of the subject — for several concepts there are tables covering the nuanced differences in the law in all fifty states. Yet he has somehow made it accessible, clear, and understandable. Even easy to read. Almost fun. The information in this book is invaluable for anyone who teaches or studies self-defense.”

Author, Meditations on Violence
