*On the issue of shooting to wound, that gains you absolutely nothing in terms of mitigating either criminal or civil liability. If you put a bullet in someone, you’ve shot them, deadly force, period. Shoot them in the leg or shoot them in the chest, from a legal liability perspective it’s all the same (the only variance is whether they die or not, obviously the consequences are more severe if they die, but a gunshot to the thigh can accomplish that quite as effectively as one to the chest).
Interesting article as to facts vs liberal thinking. Personally I have my doubts to the allegation that in other countries they only shoot to wound in deadly situations. A wounded person can still fight and kill so it is foolish to just wound.
