Defense Use of Firearms


Marc Berris is one of a very small number of Minnesota lawyers with substantial experience representing firearms owners, and his phone number has been programmed into the speed-dial of thousands of law-abiding citizens who have either obtained a Permit to Carry a Pistol, or who simply own firearms for recreational or self-defense purposes.  This is because in addition to being a lawyer, Marc is also an NRA-certified firearms instructor and a board member of the  Minnesota Association of Defensive Firearms Instructors, a nonprofit organization created to train, certify and support firearms instructors who wish to conduct training for citizens seeking a Minnesota Permit to Carry a Pistol under the Minnesota Citizens’ Personal Protection Act.  Because of the combination of these two interests, Marc understands better than most how rapidly a defensive firearms incident can evolve.  Whether a person has actually discharged their firearm or simply displayed it to deter an attack, Marc has the training and experience needed to properly assert the various defenses that are available.
