    KNOW THE LAW

    THE AFTERMATH OF USE OF FORCE

    INCLUDING DEADLY FORCE

    Tuesday, November 8, 2022

    5:30 PM – 9:30 PM

     

    In the unfortunate event that you had to use your gun for self-defense you will be thrusted into a second fight, the legal fight.   Many experts contend that the legal fight can be equally as significant as the physical fight.  Even the most responsible gun owners have little insight of the legal jeopardy brought on after a use of force event.  Knowing what to expect and how to best represent yourself with the 9-1-1 Call, the responding police and the detectives are critical factors in establishing and maintaining your innocence.  Even innocent citizens need to know how to communicate with police, the importance of their rights, and why having an attorney schooled in the law of self-defense is important.  The AFTERMATH OF USE OF FORCE session will provide you with the insights as to how best protect yourself legally while also being cooperative with police.

    The increase in mass shootings such as the tragedies that occurred during the Columbine High School Massacre and Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting have resulted in a series of impulsive legislation by our elected politicians. Regulations such as decreases to magazine sizes, weapon bans, and gun free zones are nothing, but feel-good measures set by our legislators and do nothing in preventing future acts of evil. Our Countering the Mass Shooter course dismisses these futile measures and examines how they are counterproductive against preventing such tragic events from reoccurring in the future.

    Our discussion will cover how to observe the physiological and physical warning signs of a potential mass shooter. We will conduct an in-depth analysis and dissect real data through video, discussion, and comparisons between historic mass shooting events. We will also cover developing a plan to secure a place of work, church, or school based on the most current methodologies such as the run, hide, or fight concept that can be passed along to co-workers, parishioners, and students.

    In addition, we will also discuss the special considerations needed to integrate a plan for an armed response to an active shooter. We highly recommend that anyone interested in preparing for a defensive response enroll in our Before You Carry & Defend course before considering implementing a plan of their own. Throughout this course, we will go over the realities of a mass shooting event and cover the many of the fundamentals taught in our Patriot Trauma Care to treat others from potentially fatal wounds.

    Students will also leave with a copy of the USCCA’s Countering the Mass Shooter Threat ($50 value).

    Note: We highly recommend taking this course as a group where we can develop a personalized plan for your organization. Our Countering the Mass Shooter course can be reserved as a private seminar for groups of six or larger. Please send your inquiry to bdalpe@patriotfirearmsschool.com for more information on dates and special pricing.

     

    What You Will Learn:

    • The Thresholds of Violence Theory
    • A breakdown of of historic mass shootings in America
    • Dispelling false narratives by our politicians and media
    • Observing the warning signs of a potential mass shooter
    • The Run, Hide, or Fight concept
    • Triage and treating the wounded
    • Developing a plan for an armed response
    • Special considerations for businesses, schools, churches, and other organizations

     

    Note: Countering the Mass Shooter Threat is a non-fire 4-hour class that focuses on the mass shooter and what we have learned throughout the years. We will also focus on helping you develop your own plan against a mass shooter threat. Students are welcome to bring their existing active shooter response plan to review in class
