On this edition of Civil Rights Roundup, NRA Deputy General Counsel Stefan Tahmassebi speaks with Cam Edwards about a case from Colorado where a mother of a 1-year-old was home with her elderly mother and aunt when a drunken neighbor started trying to kick down her door. After a long ordeal of him threatening her physically, her warning him to leave and him trying to break the front door down, the woman shot him before police could arrive. She was charged with second-degree murder, but fortunately, as Tahmassebi points out, the NRA had sponsored the Homeowner Protection Bill in the 1990s, which exonerated her for defending herself.
