Thread: Right to defend

    Not having read about it, it sounds like the pharmacist went way too far here. The "Straight and narrow" can be pretty narrow sometimes.

    The difference between the BGs and the GGs are often only in the adherence to the "Rules of enguagement". That these "rules" are not always fair or equitable to the would be victim goes without saying. (Ask the US military vets of the last 50 plus years how it goes!)

    BGs typically break all the rules. That is why they are BGs. The GGs, to remain in that category, must obey the rules. Simple as that.

    Which part of "... shall NOT be infringed..." confuses you?

    Agree. I mean, c'mon. He reloaded and came back?

    Kelcarry have you noticed that as of late we have a lot of "first posters" making chest thumping and CCW Badge brandishing posts on these forums?

    As it should be. My intent is to stop the threat as a self-defense shooter, not to "kill" another human. I have one major rule with this too, make the attempt to disengage and verbally communicate your intent to do so whenever possible before taking self-defense measures. If you do and the threat continues you'll have yet another tool to give LEOs to illustrate you were justified. Years ago I would have thought that I would even give first aid to someone I've downed, that is no longer an option...that's the 1st Responder's job, my responsibility lies in getting those folks on-scene as quickly as possible at that point.

    By the way folks, don't ever use the K word. It will get you in a huge mess during an investigation and in court. Look at it this way and imagine it being an evidenciary statement... If you are willing to "kill" another human then you're obviously a violent person; a violent person with guns. Just imagine the line of questioning that opens up for a prosecutor and how it would influence a jury, a jury NOT made up of your peers and very dissimilar to you.

    So I guess you refer to the previous poster as #elcarry.
