The Four Rules

Learn them.  Live by them.

"Officers then fired at the suspect, who was not hit. However, two
bystanders were hit by the gunfire."
Clint Smith once said: "There is a lawyer attached to every bullet you fire in self defense."  This is most likely the unfortunate result of the lack of range time and training for some in law enforcement.  What you would have heard from the media and anti-rights crowd is the huge uproar if this had been an armed citizen defending themselves.  Somehow, if it comes from a representative of the state, it's ok.  Remember this one for future reference.  It may come in handy.


  1. Yep, sad but true... And anymore the LEOs are ONLY required to fire once a year for quals... and some only shoot then (after they clean the crap outta the gun that has been sitting in a holster for a year since the last qual.

  2. Yes, sadly that is the case. Luckily, our local officers, both city and county are pretty well trained. They used to do a serious amount of training until they got hit with the same cuts everyone else did. Still, I'll wager they train more than most departments on the regular patrolman level. Also, quite a few are gun guys themselves which really makes a difference.
