“The absolute, without exception, must have for all firearms owners!”

This listing is for the event being held on January 13th. Visit the Events page for more details on times, location, and content by clicking here!

Part 1 of the course is presented in a 2.5-hour session with a short break in the middle. Instead of speaking in legalese, we explain in everyday terms Virginia’s boundaries between the lawful and unlawful use of firearms. The presentation is highlighted and illustrated with useful, practical examples involving real-life situations. We cover street confrontations, home invasions and the Castle Doctrine, Virginia’s stand your ground principle, and defending others. We will also cover Virginia’s legal rules relating to threat duration and proportionality of response, and Virginia’s peculiar law regarding brandishing. The latter two subjects are perhaps the most troublesome areas of Virginia self-defense law, and you need to understand them well if you rely on firearms for self-defense. We will also address whether you can still rely on prevention of an atrocious felony in Virginia to justify the use of deadly force.

Part 1 can be taken by itself, or together with Part 2, “How to Win the Legal Battle That Follows the Defensive Use of Firearms.” In Part 2, Mr. Sulzer describes the legal battle that follows on the heels of almost every self-defense use of firearms. He explains each step in the post-incident legal process and gives you a real understanding of how the system works. He teaches you how to deal with the critical time just after a self-defense use of a firearm, including 911 calls, pre-arrest interaction with the police, when and how to assert your Fifth Amendment rights, and what follows after an arrest. What you do in these circumstances will have a huge effect on how the legal system will treat you. Mr. Sulzer not only provides you with practical steps you should take, but also gives you tools you will need to (i) protect your legal rights and (ii) help you (and your counsel) extricate you from the legal system with the least amount of difficulty. Mr. Sulzer also makes clear the real magnitude of your exposure in defending against criminal and civil suits, and describes vital and surprisingly affordable ways for you to financially survive the legal process.

  7. Laurence

    Steve, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the class. You really opened my eyes to many things when it comes to using a firearm for self protection. This course should be adopted into obtaining a concealed carry permit at the least. Once again thanks for the class , I hope many others will take advantage of it.

  15. John

    This was easily the best, most comprehensive presentation on VA gun laws I’ve ever encountered. It was interesting to me when I saw the program covering 5 hours, I thought to myself – what can he possibly do to fill the time? But it wasn’t a problem!
