I have been reading a lot of stories on situations where a gun has been pointed at or fired at people, and the BG gets out of it without a scratch and the/a GG gets hit. The Tacoma Mall incident for instance. The CCW was behind the BG and said something like "drop your weapon" and the BG turned and shot him 5 times.
I recently watched a store security video where a punk walks up to the clerk, points the gun at his mid section and demands the cash. A few seconds later, he shoots the clerk 2 or 3 times and runs.
In this last story, if a ccw had been there, and was able to draw, I believe he/she should have just drawn, and unloaded without saying a word. Same goes for the first story. I think that once a BG points a weapon, they forfeit their life at that moment. If you give the BG a chance to turn and shoot, they often do. In a quickie mart robbery, do you really think the BG is gonna just stop, put their hands in the air, and surrender after you tell them to?
These situations are ones I think we need to understand well, and I'd like to hear what you folks think ?
