Little Falls, Minnesota Man on Trial in Self-Defense Shooting

This is no laughing matter and gives all of us a chance to learn vicariously from this case. Just because the two teens were inside his house doesn’t necessarily mean that Minnesota law indemnifies the man from shooting them. Pay attention to this case and follow it. You will learn some important lessons from it – include the first one that we teach in all of our Minnesota Permit to Carry classes: do not talk to the police without your lawyer present. After the shooting, you’ll want to talk – but don’t do it. Be sure to call your legal team immediately.

If you don’t know who you would call, NOW is the time to get that relationship lined up and ready to go. None of us ever want to shoot anyone, but all of us who carry under the Minnesota Permit to Carry laws should prepare for the worst.
