"Police Officer Shot Off His Own Finger -
Suing Gun Store After"
"All guns are always loaded." You don't have
to be impolite, but you don't dare trust anyone
handing you an "unloaded" gun. You always check it
yourself. (chamber check and magazine check)
The police officer neglected to do a magazine check.
He would have seen that the pistol had a loaded

not willing to destroy." (his finger)

"Self-Defense Tactics For An Enraged Attacker"
by Dave Spaulding
May 25th, 2012
“I have been through a great deal of force-related training,”
he told me. “I have practiced a lot, I knew what to do, but
everything I knew to be true wasn’t. None of the techniques
I learned worked. I don’t know how to proceed from here.”
"The harsh reality is force tools and their accompanying
training programs are designed to be socially acceptable
and taught in such a way as to reduce liability. Lawyers
and police administrators review these programs before
they are implemented with an eye toward what will happen
if the agency is sued – not toward whether or not an
officer can effectively repel a murderous attack. I know;
I have been on these committees."
"... we have known for centuries that the person who will
win in conflict is not the one with the most gadgets or
training: It is the more ruthless who will go to extremes
to prevail. Unfortunately, such ruthlessness is seldom
seen as reasonable in the eyes of the protected public."

"Papa John's Pizza stands by employee
who shot armed robber in self defense"
Papa John's has a bad policy.
If the delivery woman had obeyed
the policy, she'd be dead. Good
for her that she ignored the
policy, and used a gun to save
Papa John's is better than
Dominos and Pizza Hut who have
fired their employees in the past
for using guns in self defense
while on the job.
