    I guess they would be with sleeve guns . Wild Dog thinks he's a Ferrari but he's nothing more than a Ford Pinto with a busted muffler. I think he's off his meds.

    We aren lawyers, asking the Internet this question is unwise.

    As mentioned by others, depends on your states laws.

    In my state, the use of lethal force is justified to prevent death, serious injury, or sexual assault. Given that a single kick to the head can kill, it would be justified in my state.

    When you are a little fellow like JJaggar, that is your tool of last resort. Remember, he said he couldn't fight well so he would be foolish to let someone pound him into the ground. I remember an old saw, "Don't start a fight with an old man who can't fight. He will kill you!" Could apply to a little man also.

    What's the adage: Better to be judged by 12, than carried by 6?

    Know and abide by your state's laws! I am NOT a lawyer, however, so I don't give 2A or other legal advice.

    P.S. I am shorter at 5'5" and probably older (63), but I also live in a very RED/2A-friendly state. I'll take my chances here, TY.

    Very good advise OG! I remember a old post that you did about how you aren't the young spry person you once were. I am in the same condition. Which is one reason why I carry. Years ago I may have been able to at least make the BG limp away. But today most likely the BG will have a club, knife or a gun and will not just be satisfied with taking only my wallet or money.

    It seems the BG's today want to take your life along with your money!!

    The only people who can honestly answer this question are the jurers at your trial.

    The county Sheriff and the DA have been holding community meetings on the rights of citizens to use lethal force for self defense.

    The question was specifically asked, can a person with limited physical ability draw on a younger, stronger, or multiple bad guys threat even if a weapon is not seen. The answer was yes, if you see younger, stronger bad guys as a threat that could cause you serious injury or death. Just being knocked to the ground could do that in the elderly, broken hips, etc.

    State law states that the use of lethal force is justified to prevent serious injury, sexual assault or death.
