But if he is still a threat, by all means shoot again!
I completely agree with you on this one buddy. Thats why I have a .44 Magnum ready to protect my family and home. Usuallt after making contact with a perp with one of those rounds, a followup shot isnt necessaey but if so, that will do the trick.
Whar most people dont understand is that its your obligation to seek medical help for the perp. Even though they would have taken your life, it shouldnt be your intention to take theirs.. even though they deserve it. In todays day and age, using a firearm is a big deal and society will definitely judge you and you must defend yourself. First against the perp and additionally against the legal system designed to punish the good citizen, You!
I agree with calling 911 and letting them know to send ambulance and police and youll wait for them, goodbye. Then call attprney and get advice, or better yet.. call your attorney before it even happens so you already have the advice you need for if and when it does occur. Then if you get taken in, the only call they get is to assist you with the bs.
