    Since I carry into neighboring states, it's important to know the different jurisdictions. It also keeps you from making a bad mistake.

    Reading the law and how it is enforced may be two different worlds. Not only with in a State but with in different counties depending on the local DA.
    In Wisconsin we had DA's that would lock you up no madder what for defending yourself.
    There is the Law and there is how some read it.

    Smitty901 You sorta just reviewed this book. The laws in my state of Oregon seemed to be easy to understand until you start reading actual court interpertations. This book gave me a better understanding of the Oregon laws than my concealad class did. Maybe I should have said I have a better idea how Oregon understands Oregon law

    I have a copy of it and it's a great book. He really makes it easy to understand laws in your state or other states. The book covers different subjects and situations that the common person might encounter and he does cover some case law of cases that he reviewed

    The author is a well known attorney here in his home state, often cited as the authority on firearms law here. I had the occasion to call him once concerning a legal question and he was immensely helpful, and gave a wealth of information over the phone with no expectation of making a cent. His book is quite popular here, and recommended by a plethora of local shops and CC instructors.

    In other words, I would highly encourage anyone with an interest in the topic to purchase this book!

    The book just takes the law and puts into terms that people without a law degree can understand. He is a lawyer and all he does is talking you (the reader) as if you were in his office and had explained it to you. He shows the actual law and then translates into something most of us can understand in red underneath it. He gives some case law on cases he has worked on and where the client went wrong. Good book to have but as any book it is dated because law changes over time but still a very good read

    This book is NOT an easy fireside read. It does have what looks like VERY useful info in template form on every state's laws and is, I think, a valuable reference.
    For the sake of completeness, however, if you live in Florida, for example, Jon Gutmacher's book will serve you better; at least about Florida Law.

    I read thru Vilos' book and learned some very important things. I like the way he uses actual case material and identifies 'Thumbs Down' and 'Thumbs UP' characteristics about the actual events - not just the law. It shows how LEO's, juries, judges and persectors are likely to react to an event.

    By the time you finish reading it you really find yourself yearning for a national standard that would guide you wherever you are in the US. (OK, flame off, dudes; I'm just sayin' a national standard would seriously simplify that aspect of life).
    'Guerir quelquefois, soulager souvent, consoler toujours.'

    "Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires." (John Steinbeck)

    Good health actually just means dying at the slowest possible rate.
