Andrew Guest Interview on "Coffee with Rich" Show

Welcome to today’s Law of Self Defense Members-only content! I am, of course, Attorney Andrew Branca, for Law of Self Defense.

Today I’d like to share with you the video--and a transcript!--of my recent interview by Rich Brown of the American Warrior Society, on his weekly show “Coffee with Rich.”

Over the course of that roughly hour-and-a-half interview Rich and I discussed a wide variety of self-defense law related topics and cases including the Kyle Rittenhouse case, the Ahmaud Arbery case, the Jacob Blake case, the Rayshard Brook case, the George Zimmerman case, as well as various political dynamics around many of these high-profile self-defense cases.

Enjoy!

OK, folks, that’s all I have for you on this topic (except for the transcript of that interview below my signature!).

Until next time:

Remember

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

Know the law so you’re hard to convict.

I decided to use today's News/Q&A Show to wrap up my coverage and analysis of that tragic event, and tie up any last questions that folks might still have in their minds.

Very Disappointing: Prof. Jonathan Turley Op-Ed On Ashli Babbitt
1685

Yesterday I published a detailed legal analysis of the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt by Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd, in response to a recent tsunami of requests to do so.  You can find that analysis here: “Sad but True: Jan. 6 Shooting of Ashli Babbitt was Legally Justified.”

Because of the great public interest in this particular case, we are leaving that analysis available on an open-access basis to the general public, rather than restricting it to our Law of Self Defense Members as is our usual practice.  We’ll also be leaving today’s content open-access, for similar reasons. So, if you’d like to share either yesterday’s analysis or today’s content with others, feel free.

One of the events that has triggered these recent requests for this legal analysis of the Ashli Babbitt shooting is the publication on August 28, 2021 of an opinion piece by Professor Jonathan Turley in “The Hill,” entitled “Justified shooting or fair game? Shooter of Ashli Babbitt makes shocking admission,” and apparently written in response to a television interview of Lt. Byrd aired earlier that day (you can view that television interview here:  “Extended Interview: Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd Speaks Out.”)

Professor Turley’s August 28 opinion piece on the Ashli Babbitt shooting falls far short of the stellar quality I’m accustomed to seeing in his work. Indeed, from the perspective of this small-town lawyer claiming some modest expertise in use-of-force law, Professor Turley’s opinion piece seems wildly off the mark, especially coming from a notable legal expert, and can only be described as disappointing.

Sad but True: Jan. 6 Shooting of Ashli Babbitt was Legally Justified
2997

I’ve been receiving a virtual tsunami of requests to do a use of force legal analysis of the shooting death of January 6 protestor Ashli Babbitt by Capital Police Lieutenant Michael Byrd as Babbitt appeared to be attempting to violently breach the barricaded doorway being guarded by Byrd.

In fact, I did a detailed legal analysis of this shooting only days after it occurred—"Capital Hill Shooting of Ashli Babbitt:  Murder or Justified?” (Jan. 12, 2021)—although as with most of our content, access to that analysis was restricted to Law of Self Defense Members, who had the benefit of that analysis almost 8 months ago.

The last few days have seen a resurgence in requests for such a legal analysis of the Babbitt shooting, presumably as a result of two events.  First, the August 28 interview of Lt. Byrd by NBC News Correspondent Lester Holt:  “Extended Interview: Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd Speaks Out.” Second, an opinion piece on that interview published at The Hill by prominent legal expert Jonathan Turley:  “Justified shooting or fair game? Shooter of Ashli Babbitt makes shocking admission.”

So, with those two additional pieces of information and opinion tossed into the legal discussion of the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt it seems an appropriate time to re-visit our legal analysis of that tragic event.  (Fair warning to Law of Self Defense Members—much of this content is re-packaged from our January 12 analysis to which you’ve already had access.)

NEWS

State files two new motions in Rittenhouse case: to get donor names, and use new video (8/18/2021)

Evidence that goes to an unlawful state of mind—e.g., “We don’t call 911!,” or a Punisher back plate on your Glock—certainly CAN be used against you in court, as illustrated in this news story of this motion by the Rittenhouse prosecutor.

Q&A

  • Legal implications of using a binary trigger on personal defensive weapon.
  • Greater clarity of legal doctrine of “curtilage” in context of use-of-force law.
  • Why absence of “self-defense insurance” for law-abiding citizens only 19 years of age?
  • Legal boundary between “use” of force versus mere “threat” of force (e.g., “defensive display”).

LIVE TONIGHT! Attorney Andrew Branca Guests on Tim Pool Show
159

Welcome everyone! I’m Attorney Andrew Branca, for Law of Self Defense, and I have some very exciting news for all of you in the Law of Self Defense community.

Tonight, Tuesday, April 27, I will be guesting on the Tim Pool IRL Show on YouTube.  If you’re not familiar with Tim Pool generally, or this show specifically, you really ought to be.  Tim is an independent journalist who brings a remarkably open-minded perspective to the societally-important stories that he covers.

And that approach to covering such stories has paid off, with Tim’s various YouTube shows having collectively received over a billion views—that’s not a typo, folks, OVER A BILLION—he has well over a million actual subscribers to his shows generally.

Now, it appears that Tim has several distinct shows, and I believe the one I’m on is called “Tim Pool IRL.”  These shows are generally in excess of two hours in length, so that will give us plenty of time to dive into the just-completed Derek Chauvin trial, perhaps other past high-profile use-of-force cases, as well as upcoming cases such as the trial over the Ahmaud Arbery killing, the McCloskey brandishing in St. Louis, and of course the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.

I believe his production practice is to air the show live, in real-time, as it’s being conducted, and then to make that recording of the show available for some short time afterwards, all at the YouTube channel you can access by clicking the link below:

http://lawofselfdefense.com/pool

Also, if you do join us for my guest appearance on Tim’s show, I’ll also be making available a very special opportunity for any and all of you to become genuine masters of self-defense law, so you’ll want to be prepared to take advantage of that, as well.

OK, folks, I hope to see a bunch of you join us for tonight’s show!

Until then:

Remember

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

Know the law so you’re hard to convict.

Stay safe!

Today I’d like to share with you some legal analysis of videos of two recent police shootings of knife-wielding aggressors—the shooting this past Tuesday of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant in Ohio, and the shooting last March 11 of 32-year-old Tyrell Wilson in California.​

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!
