Self Defense And The Law & Non-Lethal Weapons

 

                                  Self Defense And The Law

Self-defense is defined as the right to prevent suffering force or violence through the use of a sufficient level of counteracting force or violence.Individuals have a right to defend themselves whenever it is necessary, with as much force as is necessary to ensure their safety when assaulted or detained against their will. It is a universally accepted principle that a person may protect themselves from harm under appropriate circumstances, even when that behavior would normally constitute a crime. However, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. The defensive actions must be required in order to extract oneself from the situation.
  2. The defensive actions and subsequent force being used must be reasonable under the circumstances. This means reasonable force/ matching force; it must match the level of the threat in question. You cannot stab or shoot someone simply because they insulted you. You must also know that the defensive action which you determined must be used to get away, not stay and fight!
  3. An individual must be protecting themselves from imminent harm of injury, sexual assault and/or unlawful detention or abduction.
  4. The force used in defense must be responding to an ongoing or presently imminent threat.

The exact rules differ between states, but the considerations are largely the same. As a general rule, self-defense only justifies the use of force when it is used in response to an immediate threat. The threat can be verbal, as long as it puts the intended victim in an immediate fear of physical harm. Offensive words without an accompanying threat of immediate physical harm do not justify the use of force in self-defense.

The use of force in self-defense generally loses justification once the threat has ended. Once the threat of danger has ended, any use of force by the victim against the assailant at that point would be considered retaliatory and not self-defense.

When faced with the decision of defending another, or assisting another in a self-defense situation, one would have the right to do so with some limitations. The general rule here is, if one has a right to defend themselves under 1-4 above, then anyone would in turn have the right to defend another or assist in their defense. See the situation from the other person’s eyes:  If you could defend yourself in that situation, then you can assist them.

Often your safest means of assisting another would be to call for police assistance and obtain a good physical description of individuals, vehicles, direction of travel, etc…. Also, be aware that not knowing all of the circumstances, or the entire situation before interacting in confrontational matters could be a serious mistake. Arriving Safe Inc., nor any of their affiliates, associates, nor anyone linked in any way to Arriving Safe, Inc., is in no way recommending you do anything. YOU must make your own decisions about the situations you are faced with at the time of the occurrence.

Non-Lethal Weapons

Each state has its own laws governing the legal use of non-lethal weapons. You should check with a lawyer, your police department, or your state’s attorney general. You should probably check with more than one of these sources, or do your own investigation and read the laws yourself.

The following is a list of a variety of available non-lethal weapons you may use for self-defense purposes. It is not all inclusive. It must be stressed that many facilities, i.e. schools, campuses, workplace, courthouses, airports, airlines, any modality of travel, and many public places have strict rules regarding weapons of any kind. Do your research!!  It must also be noted that some weapons – including non-lethal weapons such as mace – are not to be shipped to certain states. An example of this would be Mace, which cannot be shipped into Massachusetts unless it is to an authorized firearms dealer. You are allowed to carry mace in Massachusetts, it just cannot be shipped to you.
