- * Case studies and lessons learned from rulings involving concealed carry laws through expert commentary from Ayoob, who draws on his experience as expert witness for courts in weapons and shooting cases
Read an Excerpt
“If the gun must be drawn and fired to save your life or the lives of others, there is a responsibility to make certain that your shots fly true. Did you learn to shoot, perhaps even “qualify” with your weapon like a police officer? Or did you just buy it, strap it on, and think it would somehow protect you by itself? Did you become sufficiently skilled with it that, in a state of stress, you could be reasonably and prudently confident of hitting your target and not an innocent bystander? Did you carefully choose ammunition designed to incapacitate a violent attacker, and designed not to shoot through and through him and strike a bystander hidden from your view behind him? Did you become familiar with the laws of your jurisdiction that govern the carrying of firearms and the lawful use of deadly force?”
