Again, you don’t really need to stay connected to the 911 operator in the middle of a defensive gun use. Once you’ve provided the basic deets, once the cavalry’s on its way, maintaining situational awareness is job one. How you gonna do that with an operator jabbering away in your ear? Doing something—running, hiding, fighting, shooting—is job two. How you gonna do that with an operator jabbering away in your ear? If you want to record the unholy event—which is no a bad idea for a legal defense—just throw down the ‘phone. If you can (i.e. you’re not hiding) shout things like “I’ve got a gun!” “The police are on their way!” and/or “Don’t make me kill you!” I wonder: has any 911 operator ever advised a caller to hang up the ‘phone and take care of business?
