    that article is a real eye-opener; it should put all of the warrior-wannabees on notice that you had better think long and hard before you decide to act upon a situation.

    The most important part of this wonderful commentary is where he writes:"the law is what the local prosecutor says it is." We should all repeat this as a mantra each time we leave our house armed. Like it or not, that is the reality under which we live. Sometimes, if we are lucky, we run into a prosecutor who has a positive attitude toward civilians who are lafwully armed, but sometimes we do not, and we should never loose sight of that fact.

    Very good read, keeps things in perspective. The last large paragraph is the philosophy I try to use.

    That is real world truth.
    Great find and worthwhile read for the folks who are all up on the save their fellow man because 'it's the right thing to do' tip.
    What is right, what is law, and the line of lawfullness do not always intersect.

    Saving your fellow man is still the right thing to do...if you are able to do so.

    What is right, what is law, and the line of lawfullness do not always intersect.
    Unfortunatley, that is a fact.
