Prosecutorial Discretion And You (Podcast – Season 5, Ballistic Radio Episode 205, April 23rd, 2017)

“One of the most important things people can do for themselves in self-defense is take a class on things like pre-attack indicators so they can identify what’s scaring them, they can articulate what’s scaring them and that builds a very robust narrative that supports their decisions to use force.” — Andrew Branca


One of the most often overlooked aspects of self-defense is the law. When people don’t understand the law they make poor decisions that land otherwise good people into jail. Andrew Branca, lawyer and author of The Law Of Self Defense, joins Ballistic Radio to talk about the most common ways that he sees lawful citizens misuse firearms in ways that they thought were legal, but weren’t. Branca discusses where these erroneous opinions on the law come from and how people can prepare themselves against legal snares. John and Andrew also talk about the jobs of prosecutors, how they choose their cases, and ways that people mistake prosecutorial discretion for the written law.
