On tonight's Civil Rights Roundup, NRA Deputy General Counsel Stefan Tahmassebi reports the happy end to a case supported by the NRA Defense Fund. Jeffrey Kinder, Sr. of Tucson, Arizona and his son confronted a hooded prowler whom they saw in their neighbor's yard and shot him after he charged them. In the midst of strange circumstances in which the neighbor appears to have concealed evidence from police, the Kinders were charged for wounding the intruder. Although the prosecutor tried to argue that self-defense did not apply, the judge found the Kinders not guilty and ordered their confiscated firearms to be returned. Following this case, a new law came into effect in Arizona transferring the burden of proof in similar cases to the prosecution rather than forcing the defendants to testify that they acted in self-defense.
