You may recall the case of Jesus Gonzalez, the Wisconsin Open Carry activist who shot and killed Danny John and shot and wounded John’s nephew, Jered Corn. The DA charged Gonzalez with first-degree intentional homicide and attempted first-degree intentional homicide. Although Gonzalez had a lawyer representing him at trial, he followed the golden rule of post-self-defense shootings: STFU. “Gonzalez called 911 and said two men had tried to assault him and that he shot at them,” jsonline.com reports. “He waited for police and surrendered. He made no other statement to investigators and did not testify at trial.” Gonzalez did not get off scott-free. “A jury Thursday found Jesus Gonzalez guilty of lesser charges – first-degree reckless homicide and first-degree reckless injury.” But his silence allowed the jury to consider the possibility of self-defense without the taint of his pro-Open Carry activism. A lesson to us all.
