BOOM: The unthinkable has happened, and you have been forced to shoot an attacker.
There’s a lot of information on the Web about how to deal with law enforcement in the aftermath of a defensive shooting, but there’s a critical advice gap that Personal Defense Network‘s Barrett Kendrick addresses in this video–what to do in the moments after you pull the trigger, while the firearm is still in your hands. That’s because, if the shooting happens in public, there’s a possibility that law enforcement may become confused about who is the “good guy” and who is the “bad guy.” As Kendrick clarifies:
You know that you have just fired on a bad guy who needed to be stopped because he was trying to hurt you or a loved one. But does everyone else in the environment know that? Not necessarily, and they may mistake you for a bad guy. Today, more and more people have concealed carry permits and may be armed in public, in addition to on- and off-duty law enforcement officers and private security personnel who may be present. In other words, there are potentially a lot of armed good guys who may think you’re a bad guy.
Once you’ve stopped shooting, it’s important not to appear to others like you’re still shooting.
In this free video from the Personal Defense Network, Kendrick teaches some techniques you can use to keep “the fog of war” from causing onlookers to mistake you for a criminal.
