Legal Consequences of Self-Defense

A recent self-defense course prompted a question about whether a victim could face legal action as a result of fighting off an attacker.

The course was for women, but self-defense laws are gender-neutral. Whether a victim could face legal consequences depends on what the attacker did and how the victim defended himself or herself.

While the FBI continued to analyze the emails Hillary Clinton thought she deleted and her advisers pressed her to hire a Republican criminal defense attorney in Washington, a madman used a lawfully purchased handgun to kill a professor and eight students at a community college in Roseburg, Ore.

The U.S. Supreme Court could announce as early as Tuesday whether it will hear a challenge to a suburban Chicago law banning firearms commonly known as assault weapons.

If the court agrees to hear the case, it would cast a shadow over similar bans in seven states. But declining to take it up would boost efforts to impose such bans elsewhere, at a time of renewed interest in gun regulation after recent mass shootings.

Liberal Politicians Blinded by Feel-Good Policy on Guns

There is a difference between the political left and the political right. Boiled down to its simplest terms, those who want to conserve liberty feel a duty to do good. In contrast, those on the left want to feel good. That small difference leads to profoundly different policy proposals. Few topics highlight the difference as clearly as self-defense. We’ve seen a few mass murders in recent months, though more and more of them are copy cat events encouraged by the media. The political left says they have to do something, pass some law, to show their concern. The political right asks what would actually save lives.

I think saving lives would make you feel better.

Can we agree on that?

In August, The New York Times' Nicholas Kristof noted that gun violence claims one life every 16 minutes in the United States. Think about it. Every day, more than 90 American families are broken by gun violence. If you're like most people, you have come to feel that achieving any significant reduction in this disturbing statistic is hopeless. Because there are more than 300 million guns in private hands in the United States.

There’s the cycle of poverty. There’s the cycle of violence. And then there’s the cycle of gun talk. It starts with a mass shooting. Gun-control advocates blame the deaths on gun-control opponents, who argue, in turn, that none of the proposed restrictions would have had any effect on the incident in question. The debate goes nowhere. The media move on.
