Legal Defense

Has anyone joined the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network? It seems like a great idea. What do you think?

Yes, I think it is an idea with a lot of promise to it although I have to caveat that by saying I haven't followed my own advice and done it yet. I'm an attorney myself and the kind of help they say they provide in a self-defense legal related matter would be extremely helpful even to me.

I've also "internet-known" several of the people involved for 10 years now and they've always been good, solid people to deal with in the past. If nothing else, Marty Hayes is doing a huge service with some of his legitimate self-defense legal related articles. Some of the articles that they publish are just tremendous in clearing up some common myths about the aftermath of a self-defense shooting.

I'd pay them just to get more articles like their discussion of the Larry Hickey shooting incident.

It does seem that most people wait to its to late and try to join after they have had a SD shooting.Don't wait it could ruin your life and your family's too.

I haven't joined, but it does seem to be a good idea. The realities of defending an SD shooting are fairly harsh, regardless of whether you win or lose. If I were still in private practice, I'd have called them to see if I could pick up some of their cases in my state. .

I've been a member for a few years. I hope I never have to call on Marty and the gang, but I think belonging is prudent for someone who owns a gun and may use it in self defense.

I've never met Marty, but I've been impressed by what he's written. I have met Massad Ayoob, and I'm impressed that he's involved with the organization.

I worked on a few firearms cases but I am no expert.
