    Requiring a COVID-19 Vaccine (shot/s)

    Spoiler alert: there’s always going to be another variant.

    Oh boy, the nightmare scenario. Active shooting with multiple potential suspects. Worse if still in progress. First and foremost, I AM NOT GIVING YOU LEGAL ADVICE, if you are looking for that ask @Just_A_Guy. Second, there are about a million factors that could play into the scenario, so I'm going to kind of broad brush the answer. If you find yourself in a position where you have used a firearm in self defense. Please, please, please do not have it in hand when the police arrive. The possibility of being shot is high if you do. It is even higher if you turn towards or point it at the police. Comply with the commands you are given, whether you like them or understand them. The police do not have time to explain things to you when they first arrive. You can ask for and most likely get explanations later. Deal with it. It will take a while, but we are pretty good at sorting things out, but initially we are going to take complete control of the scene, lock everyone and everything down. Deal with it. Responding to the scene of a violent crime, whether still active, or now "just a crime scene" is chaotic. We will get it calmed down eventually, but it takes time. Will you be charged? Not necessarily. I have been to self defense shootings numerous times over the years and no charges were filed. Will you be investigated/questioned. Well duh. Answer honestly. Co-operate, it makes everyone's life easier. Yes, the initial officers that Kyle encountered sent him past them. They were responding to an active shooter call and were moving to that location. There were lots of people armed in that city, so seeing one more was not out of the ordinary.

    If you are going to take action, you had better understand what you can and cannot do legally.

    Something that people often misunderstand is the definitions of words. In the legal world those words often have a different meaning than Webster's dictionary. There is a reason juries are instructed not to use the dictionary. In making a decision in court, you must use the legal definition of a word in a crime based on State Code.

    I'm glad you cannot see the bad around you. It means we are still effective at what we do. You're welcome.

    Kyle is a teenager who made a number of questionable decisions, though I do not believe with any intent to do harm. He got the "grand idea" to go to the neighboring city that was burning to the ground. A city abandoned by the mayor to rioters protesting a death at the hands of the police. A city with a curfew. A city where police and fire services were overwhelmed and frankly ineffective. Kyle had minimal medical training and basically no life experience. So what did he do? He walked into that storm to see how he could help. The actions of an incredibly naive and foolish child...not a hero. He was still justified in defending himself though.

    I have witnessed the hardening of mankind's hearts over the last two and a half decades. The last 5-6 years has been worse. The last 2 or so has been chilling in how people act and treat each other. Society is becoming cold hearted towards one another in greater degrees.

    Kyle is no hero. He was definitely justified in his self defense.
  11. As a side note, yesterday I spoke in the last two wards. Last week I also spoke at a mini fireside. The talk has been well received.
  12. @Traveler My thought process has always been to look at the area you live in and what the most likely larger scale disaster could strike. In your case (and mine), that is an earthquake. Prepare for a catastrophic earthquake. Mix in the counsel to have a year supply of food and other necessities and you you will be in good shape for pretty much anything else that could befall you. I don't know if that answered your question.
