You are forced to shoot him in self-defense. ” Opposing counsel may attempt to paint you as the bully and coward who used a deadlier weapon than your assailant, and will attempt to convince the jury that your shooting of a man with “a less than lethal weapon” is unfair and therefore improper. Of course, this flies in the face of the legality of the matter, which is that within their range, the club and the knife are every bit as deadly as the gun…and, in some situations, can be deadlier. Knife Lethality I’ve been cross-trained with the knife, and over the years have had the privilege of having trained with some of the finest instructors in the field.

On the day in question, Dr. Sweet had been so alarmed he had bought guns for the friends and relatives who came to his home to protect him. Hostile crowds formed, at first held back by local police. When the 47 48 DEADLY FORCE mob began to storm the house, first throwing rocks through the windows, the defenders inside opened fire.
