What Are The Real Tactics Of Self Defence?
1. There needs to be a very obvious reason for use of Deadly Force. These reasons may vary from State to State.
2. Some States also require that you have tried to avoid the circumstance and tried to exit.
3. Are you ready to defend your self in court for your actions with all the costs. Including, a possible suit brought about by the bad guys or their families for damages?
4. While I agree that many of the gun laws are not logical. The Castle Doctrine appears to be the most beneficial for someone that uses Deadly Force to protect themselves and/or their loved ones. But, this depends on how it is written with all the buts, ands, its, and wherefores.
And the list goes on.... Now lets talk about being out in the world and self defense tactics.
When a BG makes a decision to attack you and makes his move. The move is not from the front normally, but from behind your back and you may not be able to see if a weapon is present and it is a definite threat. What good does concealed carry do for you then? Frontal attacks are for the store clerk or someone that has something between the attacker and you, unless it is 2 or more BG's confronting you. Even then, if you can bring out your gun you are still way behind should they be armed with a club, knife, gun or other weapon and it is out and ready. The BG still has the advantage and would not back down. And should the BG not have a weapon and you use Deadly Force. It will make one hell of a court case for the BG.
If, the BG('s) could see that you were carrying, it would make them hesitate and in their mind make them want to re-examine their position and most likely they would try to find another victim that was not as strong as you are. Unless, they were very desperate.
The best situation for Concealed Carry is that you are a bystander and can bring your weapon out in time to prevent the BG's from hurting someone else and thus the "surprise" effect should the BG's have a weapon visible.
I do not want to be a victim. But, if I have to defend myself it has to be according to the State and Federal laws. Sometimes, even these laws are not really clear.
