In the legal aftermath of a self defense action, can the contents of my home library be used against me? For instance, after a shooting, would it be a problem if it turns out I have a few books or magazines on shooting, a dozen books, a hundred? At some point can a lawyer say I had more than an interest in shooting, but instead "was clearly learning to be a killer shot"? Does a complete Field and Stream collection show a healthy interest in sport, while all the issues of Soldier of Fortune should stay in the closet? On the other hand, can I use what's in my books to my legal advantage to justify why I acted as I did? For instance, I did what I did because I have this book on Self Defense by Ayoob that said I should? Thanks, Mas.
