    Legal Issues Relating to the Use of Deadly Force (AZ Manual)

    Came across this. It is a manual for teaching about concealed carry in Arizona...has lots of scenarios. While it discusses them from the perspective of Arizona law, the scenarios can be thought provoking and a bit disturbing.

    How about this one, from the linked document:

    Second degree murder (with or without firearm), A.R.S. 13-1104
    [Example: Gun owner is walking in the mall, when a stranger bumps into gun owner. Gun owner pulls a gun, says "thanks for making my day" and intentionally shoots and kills the stranger.]
    You mean... we can't do that? Even if a dude gets inside your "zone"?

    Just kidding. Lots of good advice in the manual. Includes scenarios of the type frequently discussed here. Like this one:

    Then Paul sees it - the man behind the counter is holding a gun in his right hand. Paul quickly walks to his car, retrieves his S&W model 66 (a double action revolver), and walks to the pay phone on the front, right end of the convenience store.

    As Paul dials 911, the man he saw with the gun starts to exit the store, sees Paul, turns toward Paul, and raises his gun toward Paul. Paul can use deadly force in self-defense, but the robbery is over! Paul could have used his gun earlier to stop the robbery, but tactical and safety considerations
    made such an effort very risky and foolish.
    Recommended reading.
