Less-Lethal Crowd Defense: A New Reality | USCCA

While our right to defend ourselves within our homes is still unquestionable — particularly in Castle Doctrine states — encounters outside the home may be called into question. More recently, law-abiding citizens’ actions are being measured against standards of conduct for police officers. This is despite the fact that civilians lack the training and on-the-job experience of dealing with high-threat situations. It would be wise to take note and choose to layer your defensive system with additional less-lethal options.
