    Willingness

    A few months ago, Gila Hayes, of the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network (ACLDN) interviewed me about developing the right mindset to deal with violent crime. The transcript of the interview wound up being over 5,000 words. While weíre all stuck at home this might be a good time to brush up on this important topic. See

    I read through it yesterday. A good read not a hard read at all. Don't let the word count scare you away.

    It seems the two big problems are that people do not want to believe they are in danger from criminals, and they want someone else to solve their problems for them.
    No one is stronger or more dangerous than the man who can harness his emotions.

    Bingo.

    And as the light of reality is shining brightly right now many of those folks are freaking the heck out and scrambling.

    Iíve got a stupid question. Per the law, where is the line of self defense? I obviously understand if I donít act that it may not matter because I will likely be shot (or gravely injured). And I know you canít hesitate. So if you have a carry license, is it okay (per the law) to defend yourself with a gun when you perceive a violent threat? Iím not trying to incite any argument here, just looking for personal advice. I have always struggled with this question. I mean, you donít have time to contemplate ďcan I prove this was self defense?Ē.

    You are justified in using deadly force in Indiana if you or a third party is threatened with death or grave injurythe person is committing a forcible felony, or is unlawfully attacking your dwelling or occuppied motor vehicle.

    If I don't shoot them right now will I die?
    Yes. Then shoot them.
    Maybe. Do something else.

    First of all, not a lawyer. I'm sure some INGO legal eagle will be by with the legal info for Indiana at some point. I'm just a normal guy who carries on a daily basis. My thought on this is that if I believe I'm in fear for my life, I'm defending myself and will worry about the possible fallout afterwards. I read a lot on the topic of carrying a gun and brush up on the laws as much as I can, trying to stay educated on this topic. I also make sure I attend training classes as often as I'm able. That said, I'd rather use deadly force in a situation where i believe it's needed than to not do so or hesitate and be wrong. At least I'll hopefully then be alive to deal with any consequences.

    I think the "reasonable person" standard applies here. Would a reasonable person look at what happened and say that was the correct course of action.

    This is worth the read. It is an eye opener about the statistics we here about.
