KOMO 1000 AM just reported this, mentioned good guy wit a gun arrested attacker.
The even interviewed him!
I am surprised, if not shocked.

Thou shalt not be muzzled.


"Because unless you hit something vital, it doesn't matter what you hit them with. You could hit them with a .45 in the shoulder, they're gonna survive. You hit them with a 9mm in the shoulder, they're gonna survive. You hit them with a .22 in the brain they could die. So, stopping a threat really does not come down to caliber, it is shot placement."


“...average citizens only get what they want if wealthy Americans and business-oriented interest groups also want it; and that when a policy favored by the majority of the American public is implemented, it is usually because the economic elites did not oppose it.” ... NyRdhU.jpg

Help me understand the legal risk/defense for good guy. Was *his* life in danger? No.
At you can read "(1) No person in the state shall be placed in legal jeopardy of any kind whatsoever for protecting by any reasonable means necessary, himself or herself, his or her family, or his or her real or personal property, or for coming to the aid of another who is in imminent danger of or the victim of assault, robbery, kidnapping, arson, burglary, rape, murder, or any other violent crime as defined in RCW 9.94A.030."
Seems good, but what evidence did hero have the suspect was the perp? Did he observe an attempted muder (thrown object)? If so, why didn't he shoot?
Did hero have cover? (sounds like no?)
If he'd shot the perp to stop him from throwing, would it have been a "good shoot"?
Hero could have been shot by LE, what did he do to avoid that (so we can learn)?

Coming to the aid of another person is covered
