I’ve lost count of the number of times a keyboard warrior has said that if shoot in your self-defense you’ll never be arrested/tried/convicted. Unfortunately, it happens. Billy Cowart is just one case where someone had to defend themselves legally after a physical self-defense incident. And that legal defense doesn’t always go smoothly.
Considering the jurisdiction and the facts of the case I’d say he’s a very fortunate man.
IS he a USCCA member?
All of the advantage is on the side of the state, they have unlimited resources and most people will be bankrupted in a case like this before they ever even get to trial.
Zimmerman was already out more than a million dollars in legal fees before his trial even began. No “average Joe or Jane” has that kind of money to fight.
I’m a USCCA member because, it is highly likely that I would at least take a chauffeured ride to the grey bar motel, if I’m involved in a self defense incident. I may be released after questioning m but, I’m not willing to bet my kids college fund on that.
