Why not shoot the gun out of his hand????
Last evening my wife and I were watching a police drama. A very distraught man is in a public park and a police office demands to see his hands. The man shows his hands and has a handgun in one of them. He immediately points it at a group of kids and the office rightfully shoots him in the chest 3 times killing him. The next words that came out of my wife's mouth not only shocked me but made me believe everything I've tried to teach her for the last 5 years has been for nothing. She actually said, "Why didn't he just shoot the gun out of his hand?" I tried to explain stopping the threat and shooting center mass but if she hasn't been listening in the past I have no real reason to believe she understood what I was saying. I'm at a loss.
