This week we talk with Andrew Branca, the author of The Law of Self Defense: The Indispensable Guide to the Armed Citizen
(that we reviewed back in episode 51). We talk about the basics of what Stand Your Ground laws ACTUALLY are, and not what the media tells us they are. We’ve also had a lot of listener questions about self defense “insurance” so I picked Andrew’s brain about that as well, and he thinks the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network has the best model for this sort of thing.

Michigan is changing a law to allow qualified instructors to teach minors how to shoot handguns. Currently the law states that the only person that can allow a minor to shoot a handgun is a parent or legal guardian. More on this here.
The Misguided Moms are being called out by many news outlets like The Blaze, and even more surprisingly CNN (the same place that employed Piers Morgan…) about their claim that there has been 74 school shootings since Newtown. When we look into the actual “school shootings” we find that a bunch of these happened off campus, took place after hours, were suicides, or were the result of a crime spree that took place elsewhere, and just happened to end in a shootout in a school parking lot.
Plug of the Week:
Ben plugs a recent episode the the Ben Stoeger “Practical Pistol Show” podcast where Ben Stoeger talks about what you need for dry fire. It’s just your pistol.
Tip of the Week:
When drawing your pistol while seated, make sure you don’t sweep your legs with the muzzle while drawing it. We like our femoral arteries without bullet holes in them, and you should too.
