Rights for Self-Defense?

Return to FAQ Videos

Transcript:

Self-defense is pretty easy in one sense, and it’s been around literally for centuries. You have a right to protect yourself. If I come at you with what you perceive to be deadly force, then you’re allowed to use deadly force against me. People think that somehow these stand your ground statute, as they’re called, has significantly changed that. It really didn’t. What the stand your ground statutes do, in sum, is say if you’re allowed to be on the street corner just like you’re allowed to be in your home and you’re legally there, then you don’t have to retreat before you use force. The statute gives you cover, gives you protection if you perceive the event to be so imminent. That’s what self-defense is, and that’s what we sort of specialize in. We try and focus on what you can do to protect yourself when threatened.
