The majority Republican Missouri legislature handed yet another victory to pro-children activists yesterday, and a stunning defeat to those who would leave school children vulnerable to murderous psychopaths, when it overwhelmingly overrode the Democrat Governor’s veto of legislation allowing teachers to be armed in schools, as reported by the NRA and...

Ray Rice punch 2

Well, this weekend I learned there’s a guy named Ray Rice who’s got a pretty mean left hook, at least when he’s punching his wife in the face on an elevator.

It seems he also plays something called “football,” or at least he used to do so until surveillance video of the punch was...

Fast on the heels of the gang attack upon the white couple described in yesterday’s post, “Caught on Video: Vicious Group Attack by Thugs on Young Couple,” comes another video capture of a gang of black teenagers beating unconscious what appears to be a randomly selected white man intent on nothing...

Missouri gang attack

What timing.  Just last Sunday I put up a post exploring the question of “When can you legally use a gun against an unarmed person?”  In that post I explained that deadly force, such as a gun, can be used in lawful self-defense even against an “unarmed” attacker, where the “unarmed” attack...

It’s become so commonplace for “journalists” to be blind to obvious cause-and-effect relationships that fall outside the acceptable Progressive narrative that James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal has long used the tag-line “Fox Butterfield, Is That You?” as he notes these occurrences in his daily (and excellent) “Best of the Web”...

Bad Lawyer Cap

One of the most common questions I get at Law of Self Defense Seminars is, “How do I pick a good self-defense lawyer if I’ve had to use force in defense of myself (or my family, my home, business, etc.)?”

That’s too lengthy a topic for a forum post, but it does...

Sometimes “seeing the sausage get made” is just no fun at all.

This past week the Florida Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case that hinges on whether sentences under 10-20-Life must be served consecutively, or whether sentencing judges have the discretion to order these served concurrently.

With a backdrop of often...

Well, three hours of a pre-trial hearing on whether Marissa Alexander should be permitted yet another pre-trial self-defense immunity hearing wrapped up this morning. Rather than bury the lede, here’s the bottom line.

No decision.

Instead, Judge James Daniel elected to schedule still another pre-trial hearing on whether Marissa Alexander should be permitted...
