By Woody published on in General, Safety and Training, Videos

Texas Law Shield Independent Program Attorney Gordon Cooper says that words alone are not enough to justify use of force or deadly force in an escalating situation. But couple them with a threatening action, and it’s a whole ‘nother ballgame. Click to watch the video:

You might have read some articles or seen headlines about a court upholding a ban on “assault rifles,” including the AR-15. Independent Program Attorneys at the law firm of Walker & Byington, PLLC have received many questions from Members concerned that this ruling has made the AR-15 (and similar semi-automatic firearms) illegal “assault weapons” everywhere in the country. Is this the truth of the matter, or a case of media misinformation?

    OK, how stupid are the people who assembled and posted this video?? Clearly TOO stupid to be running a website!

    Come on. The video runs with background music but no intelligible voice audio. There appears to be a voice audio track, but it is at no more than 10% the level of the music track AND badly distorted.

    And, this isn’t a browser issue — I checked the video using the latest versions of Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Internet Explorer — all three give exactly the same results.

      @ TomC,

      Lighten up dude. The problem is still with you. I heard it just fine. Obviously your device isn’t decoding the tracks to the video properly. It happens from time-to-time and can be remedied by restarting your device, updating your sound drivers, or rolling back to your previous sound driver because a recent update probably screwed up your sound. But going off on the Law Shield about it is absolutely uncalled for and quite ridiculous.

    Flashing a weapon in an effort to diffuse a situation is as bad as warning someone you are a martial arts black belt. It’s a challenge to either test your truthfulness, or to wait for you in the dark.

    Reminds me of my buddy who stepped on a girl’s foot at a dance. He boyfriend jumped right in with my friend was making improper advances. Then he proceeded to relate how he was a black belt and because his hands were “lethal weapons” the state required him to warn anyone three times and to show them his certification card. He got to the second time when the folding metal chair laid him out on the floor… and it was time to leave…

    Our hand to hand instructor said never let you opponent know what you are able to do. If you can walk away without more than catcalls, do it. If pushed into a corner where you have no option, then you go in with the intent of killing your opponent. The main factor is that if you don’t then you have already lost, and, once your opposition is out of action, you can decide not to kill them, and walk away.

    Anyone can be passive in a confrontation. After you rearrange their parts you can leave them on the floor and walk away passively.

      Good example of why open carry is not a good idea for most of us.
