Great read, Canebrake.
I am currently waiting on my carry license from Texas.

Carrying a firearm to me is for my family, not to be what some want to be, a "badass".
I smoked for a lot of years and the main reason I quit was not because it was bad for me, but for my wife. My exposing her to my smoking was killing her as mast as it was killing me. I saw it as an unselfish sacrifice for her.

With the current state of the country, with me living 528 miles north of the border, and DHS releasing prisoners, I can't help but worry. Being in rural America, we don't have the big city crime problems, but sooner or later, bad guys will see it's less risk to move outside the city.
I hope and pray it doesn't come to taking a life, but my wife, not my possessons means the world to me. Again, thanks for the heads up.

I agree with you mostly. My permit was obtained because i don't want to ever feel helpless the day one of my loved ones are in harms way

You do not have to surrender your weapon to police in Florida stand your ground state, most likely don't have to in other states as well, as long as the shooting was lawful.

even in justified shooting, there is quite possibilty and it's more than likely the firearm will be taken in until the shooting iscleared one way or the other.

just out of curiosity, where are you getting your information from? i am pretty sure someone is feeding you wrong information.

best place to find out the truth on these types of subjects, is the state laws in your state, or an attorney.

Tell that to George Zimmerman. His gun was taken as part of the investigation into the Travon Martin shooting and now the Feds have stepped in and siezed (illegally siezed) it with the excuse that they need it in case they file federal hate crime charges. Even the prez said he couldn't have it back - but that he could buy another one if he wants to. Hey Mr. prez, if you are going to illegally sieze Zimmerman's gun maybe YOU should buy him another one!

And he was found to have been justified twice for the same shooting. Lmfao

very good advise cane, one rule that I learned when I took my administration of justice course for private security when dealing with reports, and that rule apply when dealing with law enforcement over a shooting incident is CYA.......cover your ass.....and your advice will help do just that.

If the Tango is no longer a threat, safe and holster your weapon. The officers responding have no idea what has happened, won't know who the good guy is, won't know who the bad guy is, and if they find you standing over a body with a gun in your hand you're likely to get a bad reaction.

While keeping a safe distance, stay alert! This guy was trying to kill you just minutes ago! Continue your 360 sweeps for any BG’s that may show up!


What's your issue?
As I said, "approach." You have no business approaching the "Tango," much less "clear[ing him] of any weapons." That's the LEO's job. "Standing over a body" gives anybody the wrong impression, including any witnesses, especially if they watched you approach with the gun still aimed at him and delivering a coup de grâce if he "moves at you."
