Yesterday, Mark Walters and I spent an hour talking about the differences between the shoplifter who was shot recently in NY and the one who was killed in Lakeland, FL. Embedded in the discussion was the incredibly important issue of ” Should versus Could ” and our responsibility as armed people to use force only when needed. In the latter case, the shooter was (rightfully) charged with murder. In NY, the bad guy was shot as he was jumping over the counter AT the armed good guy.
We discussed the practical, tactical and political aspects of “should versus could” in regard to armed defense using these events and the public commentary about them as a backdrop. you can listen to the entire show here: 10/23/18 Armed American Radio.
