Self Defense Laws

Self defense is defined as the counter-steps taken to ensure the well being of oneself and / or defending oneself from from any other harm. Legally, self defense is defined as the right to defend the life of oneself and / or others, or against certain violence or force by using a reasonable amount of force or violence, and in some specific situations, using a deadly force. This might sound very simple, but actually it is a little bit complicated? For instance, what can be defined as the reasonable amount of force? Theoretically, if the justification of the force is right, it is not considered illegal.States have certain rules to determine whether the self defense was actually required or not and the amount of force used for self defense. The exact rules might differ for each state, but the conclusion is mostly the same.
