‘The Law of Self-Defense’:
The most important seminar you might ever take…

After reading Andrew Branca's book and hearing him speak at a luncheon, we knew that anyone who keeps a firearm for self-defense absolutely must hear what he has to say about avoiding pitfalls that could land you in prison, so we asked him to teach a seminar at GRNC's "Celebrating Twenty Years of Victory" annual meeting.

As a lawyer, IDPA Master-class competitor, firearms instructor and internationally recognized self-defense expert published in “The Wall Street Journal” and elsewhere, Branca dispels myths surrounding how you may or may not legally defend yourself and your family using deadly force, and shows how you could inadvertently end up in prison. (And if you think you know the law, you are probably wrong. Much of the advice you’ve heard – even from cops and concealed handgun instructors – is bad advice.)

What the NRA's "First Freedom" magazine says about Branca's book:

"Since most gun owners are so law-abiding that they have no personal experience with the criminal justice process, Branca gives an overview of the crimes that may be charged in a self-defense case [including] what to expect from an investigative and judicial process in which 'none of the people who will have been put in control of your fate will understand what it was like at that desperate moment.'"

Engaging students with scenario-driven applications of the legal principles governing the law of self-defense, Branca's seminar illustrates how the law of self-defense is applied in real court cases involving real people.

What you will learn from "The Law of Self-Defense":

•    Criminal Justice Pipeline — What to Expect
•    Five Principles of the Law of Self-Defense
•    Defense of Others
•    Defense of Property
•    After the Fact/Interacting with Law Enforcement

Founded in 1994 and marking two decades of defending your rights, GRNC's annual dinner on June 21st in Charlotte is themed: "Celebrating Twenty Years of Victory" (details at: http://grnc.org/annualdinner) and will feature nationally renowned speakers, including:

  • John R. Lott, the man whose research fueled the explosion of concealed handgun laws and author of "More Guns, Less Crime." Lott will discuss his exciting new "Crime Prevention Research Center" and its efforts to blunt Bloomberg-funded propaganda disguised as "research" from Johns Hopkins University and elsewhere. You've seen Lott on Fox News, CNN and elsewhere. His writings appear regularly in The Wall Street Journal, National Review and elsewhere. Now meet him in person!

Andrew Branca, the foremost expert on U.S. Self-Defense law across all 50 states and author of "The Law of Self-Defense," recently reviewed in the NRA's America's First Freedom magazine. Branca will not only address the dinner, earlier in the day he will teach a four hour seminar on what to expect (and how not to go to prison) if faced with the need to use a gun in self-defense.
