Hope that this is ok with Euclidean but will quote him and just had to ask the question. In his post of Mar. 24th he stated"The fact is that if someone is pointing a gun at you,there is absolutely no reason not to assume they are about to kill you. Act accordingly." I have been thinking allot about this lately.(I love these forums,I seem to always learn allot from my fellow CCWers/shooters.) What he said makes allot of sense to me. Seems to me that in ANY state you would be justified in killin' the scumbucket.(PERP) I teach a CCW course but I realized that I do not address this perticular sanerio. I feel that I should include this topic in my next class and was hoping that I could get some comments from the rest of you CCWers.--- Should I include this topic at all?--- How should I make it sound to the students?--- What guidelines should I give them to help them make their decissions? I know what I would do, but I want to lay out all the options and let them make the final decission. The people that I teach(for the most part) already have their CCW. They are mostly the wives of the soldiers and sailors that are deployed overseas fighting our "dirty little wars". Some of my students also include active duty military personnel. I have made up the new teaching guidelines but it is not in it's finished form. The more that I ponder this subject,the more questions come up. Any comments would be appreciated.
