If someone is attacking you with a weapon (intent to kill) then you need to as quickly as possible make their body temperature ambient temperature.
The FBI teaches disarming shots in their training, including shoulder separation shots. This will separate the shoulder with which the 'perp' is holding a weapon.
It is effective training, but most municipal firearms training is low cost, center mass type training. Isn't it nice we hold our police to a lower standard of training? Doesn't show at all, does it?
But I am a HUGE fan of social Darwinism.
Speaking of, will you be attending a Trump rally soon? I noticed southern states were having an increase in covid hospitalizations....social Darwinism at work! I love it!
Less conservative voters is a GOOD thing for America!

But, the law is pretty clear on using guns, and frowns upon shooting to maim or cripple.
Shooting a person once or twice in the stomach or chest still leaves the potential for an armed suspect to kill. I've seen it happen.
Being the person who is in that situation is #ty. It's a #ty situation.
But when it comes down to it, and you find yourself in that situation. Basic instincts tend to take over and you either freeze or fight to preserve your own life. Training just makes it to where you have some more control over it.
The actual military (Vet here) teaches it differently.
Are you protesting somewhere lately?
Not a lot of Conservatives looting and rioting, if you have noticed.

I have been saying shot people in the leg if you can for years, I agree with Biden on that.

'unarmed' knife attacker.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.
God help us all if Biden wins.
