What really happens after you have to pull the trigger? How does the judicial system work if you have to defend yourself with a firearm or other legal weapon? Who do you call if you’re wrongfully arrested? These questions and more are answered in our informative workshop. Learn from a licensed and barred attorney that specializes in firearms law when you can and can’t use deadly force, how a jury would likely find you in certain cases, and why it’s important to always have a legal plan as a firearm owner, along with a Q&A session to get free legal advice on subjects surrounding gun ownership. A local law enforcement officer then speaks on what to do as an LTC holder during traffic stops, how to deal with police if you ever have to use your firearm or any other legal weapon in self-defense and more. If you own a firearm, this class is a must-have.
