Review: "If you own a gun for self defense, you need to know the law. To do that, you should get this book."
Hey folks, I got another very kind review of "The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition," this time from Grant Cunningham at the Personal Security Institute in Oregon. (Grant's also been very helpful in getting folks signed up for the Tualatin, OR Law of Self Defense Seminar--only 9 seats left for that one. Thanks, Grant!)
I'll link over to the whole review, but here's his take-home message:
If you own a gun for home or personal protection, I highly recommend that you get a copy of LOSD. It will explain the legal system thoroughly yet understandably, and will give you the information you need to deal with the laws where you live.
If you're a defensive shooting instructor (or even an instructor of non-lethal defense, as Branca covers that as well) this is a must-have for your library. You need to know more than your students, and it is incumbent upon you to be able to answer their questions factually. This book will not make you an instant expert, but it will keep you from sticking your foot in your mouth when someone asks a question about the legal side of self defense.
I encourage you to head over to the Personal Defense Institute site to read the whole piece:
Andrew F. Branca is an MA lawyer and the author of the seminal book “The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition,” available at the Law of Self Defense blog, Amazon.com (paperback and Kindle), Barnes & Noble (paperback and Nook), and elsewhere.
