They won't do anything but at least you won't get assaulted by said oxygen thief and catch a murder rap cause you went all Paul Kersey.

    As for the CT guy, he would probably not be billed here in TX if it even went that far.

    You know, it would do everyone who carries to sit down with someone who actually testifies, prosecutes, or teaches use of force law, in other words a credentialed expert, and discuss the pros and cons of avoiding the use of force when it is possible to safely avoid using force.

    It is sorrowful to think that perhaps someone taking advice from a less than knowledgeable source would make a decision based on inaccurate instruction and shoot someone, putting themselves in the cross hairs for criminal prosecution.

    I am amazed at the number of folks who unknowingly spout erroneous information that can lead themselves or another to assumed liability, based on info they got from the third shitter down.

    Some of that information is included in our state's CCW class. One of our local training groups does a specific class on use of force laws in addition to their CCW and other classes.

    That is pretty much all the CO CCW class is (was for me) since we don't have a live fire section. The guy I had was pretty good. By the end of it, you start to wonder if it is worth it to shoot anyone.

    I understand that, and I've seen some of the well meaning codgers teaching in our state. My go to CCW instructor is a District Court Judge, who is also a former County Attorney.

    On the other hand, I have a friend who retired to the Boundary Area in Minnesota. By coincidence he was in town to see a new grandchild last week and we met for coffee. He told us about his adventures keeping his mouth shut during his CCW class, especially when the instructor said, I'll give you a few minutes to read over the liability section.

    As far as I'm concerned it is a subject that almost universally is inadequately instructed.

    For those with $400 and two days to spare, I highly recommend this...

    https://massadayoobgroup.com/mag-20-classroom/

    I am not part of the Massad Ayoob Group and I make no money on promoting this or any other class. I've taken this class several times and each time I gain new appreciation for it. My only complaint is they no longer offer the Tueller Drill. I've taken that several times as well, and it's an eye opener.

    Mods, if I am not allowed to post a link to a class, I apologize and fell free to delete.
