Self-defense immunity, and how it applies in the context of an accidental shooting

ANDREW BRANCA CASES OF THE WEEK. 

Here at CCW Safe we are excited to start a new weekly series sharing the content of  Attorney Andrew Branca from lawofselfdefense.com

Each week Andrew recaps the interesting cases he has looked at for his members and visitors. Here is a brief summary of what this weeks cases are about:

  • Self-defense immunity, and how it applies in the context of an accidental shooting
  • The sharp distinction between the legal defenses of self-defense and accident
  • The legal consequences of NOT providing aid to the attacker you’ve shot
  • Importance of keeping each of the elements of self-defense distinct, and not conflating multiple elements into a single characteristic
  • Being aware of the “time dilation” effect of appellate court decisions and the statutory law they apply.
  • Be alert that most lawyers and judges—even panels of appellate court judges—often don’t know self-defense law all that well
  • How any item can be a deadly weapon, depending on the manner of its use
  • Importance of focusing on  and understanding the actual underlying legal doctrine that’s relevant, and not over relying on the label someone may assign to that legal doctrine
