    "Self Defense Laws Of All 50 States" (BOOK)

    This is a book I saw recently recommended by Mas Ayoob. Written by a gun-friendly lawyer in Utah, Mitch Vilos covers the important points in, yes, ALL 50 STATES! And puts it along with examples and case cites in non-legalese form. You can buy it in book form or e-Book form for $10 at Amazon. 600 pages (!!!) of common-man info for $10 - a steal and a great supplement to handgunlaw. I got mine from Barnes & Noble for their NOOK e-Book reader for $10, also. GET. THIS. BOOK.

    I went to Amazon and only found a 2013 edition (maybe my search terms missed the mark).

    Hmmm, don't know. Just went and checked mine. Info is correct. I just read about it this week in AMERICAN HANDGUNNER magazine in an article by Mas Ayoob.

    I can sum up NY for you. You have to run like a coward until you can no longer run then you can defend yourself. I actually says you have a duty to retreat in the law. The only time you don't is if your on your own property.

    The problem with any such publication is that gun laws in the various states are changing quickly. It would have incomplete/incorrect info the day it hit the street. A website, such as handgunlaw.us, that can be updated easily/quickly, is probably a better resource.

    That's what I was thinking too .... geez, about when we get everyone educated, it changes and improves ... so, we are not complaining. But, in a book form, it would be out of date real quick.

    If it lists Texas OC as of 1/1/16 and campus carry going into effect 8/1/16, then it's maybe current.

    But the laws change constantly. There are great web sites with current, up to date info.
    Handgunlaw.us is one.

    Well I read alot of books from amazon kindle and it does has a e-book version on kindle then if the author keeps the e-book version currently up dated and has it set with amazon it should auto update your e-book on your kindle when it syncs and detects the updates.

    I live in central NY also. I thought if someone breaks into your home and if you can retreat out another door you must do this. Am I correct? Also do not ever shoot a Criminal in the Back.

    In your home you don't have a duty to retreat.

    In the early 1980's at least one state did require you to retreat if you were able to do so, even when in your own home. Massachusetts was that state. There were five others at the time.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
