Hey folks, As mentioned last week, I've been invited by Fredy Riehl to do a weekly, "Law of Self Defense: Question of the Week" feature for Ammoland.com, where Fredy is the editor of shooting sport news.

Really good questions rolled in all week via Twitter, Facebook, and email, as well as some in-person suggestions. As they say, however, there can be only one winner, and this week that winner is Jeannie L., who asked about the legal issues around weapons retention.

The result is a 1,000+ word analysis of the interface between the intertwined tactical and legal issues around weapons retention, to appear live over at Ammoland.com as soon as Fredy can free up a moment from the SHOT show in Las Vegas. Check over there periodically to see if it's up yet.

As the winner of this week's Law of Self Defense QOTW, Jeannie wins a free autographed copy of "The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition."

Because Jeanie L’.s tweet was selected as this week’s “Law of Self Defense: QOTW,” she is being sent a free autographed copy of “The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition”.

If you’d like to submit your own question for consideration as a “Law of Self Defense QOTW,” simply tweet or DM it to me @LawSelfDefense (no “of”), contact me in a comment to this blog post, or via Facebook or whatever works best.  If your question is selected, you too will receive a free autographed copy of “The Law of Self Defense”.

For the rest of you whose questions were not selected, you can also obtain a copy of “The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition,” using any of the order methods described below.  Maybe even two copies. :-)
