So I have been paying very close attention to what is going on in politics, as we all should be. It seems that non-gun owners and people who don’t know anything about firearms, believe that if someone is attacking you and your life is in danger, you should just shoot them in the leg. Now I’m sure we are all aware of why this is a horrible idea, but if you ever find yourself in a conversation with someone who doesn’t know what they are talking about, here are a few key points to why this idea SUCKS.
- There are major arteries in the leg, if you hit one, they will bleed out very quickly, leaving no chance of survival.
- Aiming for the leg whenever you are in a hand-to-hand combat situation is nearly impossible as it is already incredibly difficult to hit someone center-mass in the heat of the moment.
- We don’t shoot to maim, we shoot to stop the threat, if they have chosen to put your life in jeopardy, we have the constitutional right to defend ourselves.
It never hurts to arm yourself with knowledge, hopefully this will help you guys to educate someone else!
