Gun rights aren’t absolute, the motorcycle.com narrator opines. Is he saying they shouldn’t be absolute? That they should be but aren’t? Or that gun rights aren’t absolute because they must be tempered by responsibility? And then there’s the assertion that “duty to inform” laws are a good idea, and bikers should declare their firearms to a police officer any time they’re stopped, regardless. And other factual inaccuracies. The main takeaway? Don’t depend on YouTube for legal advice. Biker or not, check the actual law in your area/
Gun gurus warn against drugged-up perps who possess super-human strength or imperviousness to pain. Be that as it may, it behooves any armed American to understand that an attacker may seem “normal” but be out of his head on drugs. You cannot assume that an attacker will act rationally when you present them with a logical alternative to ballistic perforation. As always. KEEP YOUR DISTANCE. Create as much of it as possible, as soon as possible. And don’t hesitate to shoot if you are imminent in danger of death or grievous bodily harm. Remember: a perp may choose to attack when it makes no sense to do so.
Perhaps the better way to put it: if you point a gun at an angry Russian, it’s probably best to shoot him until the threat stops. Because it ain’t gonna stop.
As David Kopel reports at washingtonpost.com (yes the Post), Former Secretary-General of Interpol Ronald K. Noble reckons armed Americans can help stop terrorists. Ya think?
