Weapons Law And Self-Defense In Missouri
When I say I “wrote the book on weapons and self-defense in Missouri,” I mean that literally. Anyone interested in this topic in a general sense is invited to acquire my book entitled Missouri Weapons and Self-Defense Law: Common Law Experience and Missouri Practice, published in 2003 or our DVD Missouri Concealed Carry and Self-Defense Law, both updated on this website.
On the other hand, if you are looking for personalized legal counsel relevant to your particular concerns and circumstances, contact me and schedule a consultation.
I Offer Proactive Consultations On Weapons And Self-Defense
Many clients take advantage of my offer of a fairly priced initial consultation to review their concerns about self-defense. Quite a few have done so proactively, before any incident or brush with the law occurred. This is a wise path of preparation. Personalized knowledge of the law can go a long way in preventing the need for damage control after a legal problem has unfolded.
In my former life in the Army’s Fifth Special Forces Group (Green Berets), weapons were a daily concern. Today in Gladstone, Missouri, questions about the best strategies for self-protection with firearms are frequent topics of discussion. My knowledge of the use of weapons for self-defense has historical and practical aspects. My research on these topics to date has been extensive. Many people call me “the gunshow lawyer,” but I am also knowledgeable on weapons other than guns. I am available to be your defense attorney as needed.

I Handle Tough Cases, Including Charges Of ‘Felon In Possession’
In an individual criminal defense case involving weapons and self-defense, I am always ready to evaluate the facts and take a stand in support of my client’s constitutional rights. I often obtain very favorable outcomes, including acquittals, on behalf of people who had been told by other lawyers their cases were “hopeless.” No attorney can promise a particular outcome in a criminal case. However, my clients have full assurance of my preparedness to advocate on their behalf.
Bring your questions about the use of weapons for self-defense in Missouri to my attention before any incident has taken place — or after an arrest. I welcome the opportunity to explain to you, or to a judge and/or to a jury, what the law really has to say about your case.
