Study: Charges filed in Self-Defense Shootings in 2014

I ran across this article on Guns.com pertaining a study of charges filed in self-defense shooting situations.  While the article is a year old, I think it has some decent information and was worth sharing.  Here’s a snippet from the article:

Of the 146 cases which we were able to determine whether charges had been filed, only about 10 percent – 15 cases – ended in legal ramifications. However, three of those 15 were miscellaneous charges, such as discharging a firearm within city limits or possession of a weapon, instead of charges pertaining directly to employing the weapon against another person. The remaining 131 cases did not or were not expected to result in any charges.
