    When is the right time to use Force

    • Riley Bowman July 25, 2018 at 2:51 am #

      I am sorry to respond with such a vague answer, but “it depends.” Learning when the right time to use force, specifically deadly force, is made easier by studying Andrew Branca’s “Law of Self Defense” book or even taking a class from him. He explains it better than anyone else I know. To learn more you can go here:

      We also share Mr. Branca’s “Case of the Week” segments on the podcast each week. These cases contain many great “lessons learned” about when to use or not use deadly force.

      We also review on a weekly basis a minimum of three (and usually more) “JUSTIFIED SAVE” stories on the podcast. I think you would find many good pointers in those stories as well.

      In a simplistic sense, however, deadly force may be used outside of a residence when a person reasonably believes that they or another person are in imminent danger of being killed or receiving great bodily injury. The person must also not be the initial aggressor in the situation. Also in many states, many “forcible felonies” (sexual assault, kidnapping, robbery, burglary, etc.) also justify the use of deadly force. Of course, you must check your local/state laws and consult with an attorney that specializes in this area of the law for the state in question.

      For deadly force within a residence, the requirements can often vary somewhat, but in a general sense for states with “Castle Doctrine,” the resident is pretty well protected from prosecution for using deadly force against intruders that unlawfully enter the residence. Often there is a requirement that the resident must have some reasonable belief that the intruder might use some degree of force towards or against them.

      I hope this is helpful!
