Hey folks,

I just wanted to take a moment to drop a note sharing the news that Professor Jacobson has kindly invited me to continue blogging here at Legal Insurrection, and I have gratefully accepted.

Of course, my frequency of posting won’t be at the two-to-three-mega-posts-per-day rate that was sustained during much of the Zimmerman trial.

You should expect at least one substantive post from me here a week, however, and as many smaller posts as news events and other circumstances seem to warrant.


Also, it’s likely that my blogging content will expand beyond the narrow confines of the law of self-defense to include other related areas, such as fundamental gun rights and concealed carry rules and regulations.

Without guns there is no effective self-defense for the normal law-abiding citizen, and without concealed carry there is no effective self-defense when living a normal life out and about in the world.

Meanwhile, on the Law of Self Defense front, things have simply exploded.  We’ve sold enormously more copies of “The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition” than we had any reason to expect, and our LOSD Seminars are being announced and filled up about as fast as we can find local hosts to partner with.  There is no doubt whatever that a large proportion of this explosive success has been due to the incredible exposure provided to me by Legal Insurrection.  Thanks again, Bill!

(Of course, all of you who have come to know me here will be aware I never let pass an opportunity to pitch:  Click here to order “The Law of Self Defense, 2nd Edition,” and use the coupon code LOSD2-LI (for “Legal Insurrection”) at checkout to get $5 off and free shipping; click here to learn more about our Law of Self Defense Seminars; and keep your eyes open for news about our state-specific supplements that dive deep on each state’s self defense statutes and court decisions.)

As always, I’m quite amenable to any suggestions for blog posts on the law of self defense or any related area, so if you have particular areas of interest, don’t hesitate to pass them forward.

That said, I’ll look forward to continuing to engage with all of you on a regular basis, right here at Legal Insurrection.
