    I'm glade it was done in the lower courts and overturned - The activist court decision created a dangerous carve-out from self-defense rights by prohibiting use of defensive force by a person even in the unlikely case of a violent, unjustified attack by an officer acting completely outside his lawful duties. No one supports our nation's law enforcement officers more strongly than the NRA.
