    Book recommendation for all non LEO who carry

    This book, in its second edition, is a darn near must read for any and all citizens who wonder if carrying a firearm for protection is a good idea. This is a collection of post-shooting interviews of Citizens only who had to use a gun to “win the day”, often times to protect LEOS who had been ambushed.

    The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell

    Well, see, I never "wondered" such things. I was convinced at a young age that it was the thing to do and I started carrying way before I could actually get a legal CCW permit. Soon as Texas passed the CCW law, I became legal. Better judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    Ohio can be a scary place for CCW. In 49 states, a prosecutor needs the evidence to point to 95% or greater that you were in the wrong. In Ohio, if 85% of the evidence shows justifiable self defense, they can bring charges against you if 15% points to you being wrong.

    In short, in Ohio the burden is on you that you were in the right. Even if you win against a wrongful prosecution, your still bankrupt afterward. It can cost you $50,000 or more to defend yourself in court.

    I typically re-read Branca's "The Law Self Defense" once a year or so. Indispensable info and also provides websites for updates and changes in firearm laws. Excellent read. Good call, maloy.

    I really need to find a state with the Castle Doctrine when I decide to move.

    I was going to mention two books (The Law of Self Defense and Deadly Force), but Maloy beat me to it.
    I can also recommend www.lawofselfdefense.com website, which is Andrew Branca's blog.

    So, you'd rather be dead? I get it.

    Now days, if I had much, if any worry about getting into a shooting, I'd get this for a couple hundred a year, legal insurance. However, the likelihood of getting into a shooting is REALLY low for me, part of the reason I moved here. I was going to sign up for this when we decided to move from Corpus. Things are getting better for the good guy now days. In 1981, when I had to draw on a bum with a knife (thank the Lord I didn't have to shoot) things were much different, even home defense was risky, especially considering the then lack of a castle doctrine.
