      They fired four shots at his mouth…. Sounds like shoot to kill, but because the perpetrator was disabled they didn’t continue firing.

          Hey turns out it’s possible to teach law enforcement not to pull their firearm unless they intend to shoot to kill and that you should stop shooting when there is no longer a present threat. Who woulda thunk it?

      Everyone even moderately competent shoots to kill. They fire most commonly at the torso until the individual is no longer a threat. Turns out that putting several bullets into someone’s body commonly kills them. Only in TV shows do people shoot people in non-vital areas to disable them and only in TV shows does shooting people in the foot or shoulder not just kill people same as shooting them anywhere else.

        Small correction: they shoot with the intention of stopping the threat, not with the intention to kill. Otherwise, you’re completely correct

    A certain site is claiming this is proof her stance on guns doesn’t make sense

    S: worlds dangerous. We should fix guns. Y’all won’t so I need bodyguards.

    Bodyguards protect

    Right: see you’re wrong. More guns.
