HS 306 – When Deadly Force is Justified with General Bruce Lawlor

Bookmark and Share

Jason Hartman talks with retired US Army Major General Bruce Lawlor, author of When Deadly Force is Involved, about his new book.

Most Americans purchase guns for self defense, and have already decided that, if the situation arises, they will use deadly force to protect themselves and others around. Jason and Bruce examine the burden of proof that you need to meet in order to justify self defense, and how you can avoid protecting yourself but being guilty in the eyes of the court.

Key Takeaways:

[1:55] The common elements of law and self defense around the nation

[4:26] Is there a duty to retreat?

[8:48] Self defense and fist fights through the eyes of the law

[14:12] The questions that Bruce’s book answers

[15:46] An example of a person exhibiting “bad behavior” in the eyes of the law
