Be Hard to Kill AND Hard to Convict: Save $200 on YOUR State’s ACTUAL Self-Defense Law
1239

Hey folks,

I’m Attorney Andrew Branca for Law of Self Defense, probably most familiar to many of thousands of you through my daily coverage of the murder trial of Derek Chauvin, over the in-custody death of George Floyd. 

(You can find the video version of this podcast by clicking here.)

I trust you’ve found that coverage to be informative and enjoyable, and perhaps a little bit different than the mainstream media coverage of the same trial.  Presumably that’s the case, or you wouldn’t still be watching these videos, reading my blog posts, or listening to our podcast!

Covering trials at this level of intensity, however, while it’s something we do for many high-profile cases such as the Chauvin trial, isn’t our normal day-to-day work.  

Rather, the core of our business is to provide normal, law-abiding folks just like you with the information you need to make better informed, more confident, more legally-sound, and more decisive decisions in defending yourself, your family, and your property against criminal predation.

In fact, considering the many thousands of you who just recently became aware of us through our coverage of the Chauvin trial, we’ve put together a very special offer for all of you watching or listening to or reading this.  You can get the DVD or online streamed Law of Self Defense Advanced State-Specific Course for your state at up to 60% off the usual price—that’s a savings of almost $200!

If you’re wondering if there’s a catch, the answer is yes—we’re going to leave this offer up only until we have a verdict, or a mistrial, in the Chauvin trial.  Once either a verdict is rendered or a mistrial announced, this opportunity will be gone, gone, gone.  

Bottom line, if you’re at all interested, I urge you to take a look at this fantastic offer for the Law of Self Defense Advanced State-specific Course for your state, right NOW, by pointing your browser to lawofselfdefense.com/state.

OK, folks, that’s all I have for now. Be sure to join me again on Monday morning for our live coverage of the Chauvin trial, a morning that will include closing arguments by both the state and the defense (and surely a follow-on rebuttal closing by the state), and the reading of the final jury instructions to the jury.

And don’t forget, I urge you to take a look at this fantastic offer for the Law of Self Defense Advanced State-specific Course for your state, right NOW, by pointing your browser to lawofselfdefense.com/state, and saving almost $200 on this invaluable knowledge and expertise. Once we have a verdict in the Chauvin trial, this offer will be gone. 

Remember

You carry a gun so you’re hard to kill.

Know the law so you’re hard to convict.

Stay safe!

In order to better understanding US use-of-force law in general and our content in particular, I strongly urge you to download our 100% FREE infographic "The Five Elements of Self-Defense Law" here:  http://lawofselfdefense.com/elements If you don't understand these legal elements of any self-defense claim, you can't possibly understand how these laws are applied to real use-of-force cases.
