Anyone who didn't get the statement "If the bullets go that way, you pass" as tongue and cheek probably isn't very smart. Everyone in the universe knows that statement was not meant to be taken literally. To defame a person for something like that shows a lack of intelligence on the part of the writer for sure.
As for the 21 foot rule, another over simplification by the writer. Mark Cortis
can talk for days on the laws regarding the use of deadly force that go far beyond simple theories or guidelines like the 21 foot rule. There is of course disparity of circumstance, the use of other weapons, exacerbated pugilistic skills, ie Mike Tyson wants to fight you. To take a statement out of context that would require expansive explanation is reckless and unfortunate. To cast a shadow over the entire organization and the instructor based on these remarks is downright pathetic.
It seems that Mark Cortis
as the most humble of human beings on the planet would not ever be out to get anyone else, to make negative remarks of any kind, or to be less than positive. He does not claim to be an expert of any kind, nor a good shot, nor know everything about the law, and if you took the entire class and listened to the minimum two hours of law you would realize how misguided your accusations are.
is also a strong supporter of MOC and hands out our literature in every class, and tells people the right stuff about open carry. Why a member of MOC would want to bash someone who promotes the organization is beyond me.
So, maybe it would be a good idea before jumping to rash conclusions and making inflammatory remarks to get the whole story, and to try and be a little more positive about things. Good grief, the next issue on the board seems to be an argument about trigger squeeze vs trigger control! Yikes! Do we not have better things to do than get into semantical arguments about such things.
Let's get back to the positive issue of promoting open carry, and stop bashing good people over petty issues. And for goodness sake please take the time to know the whole story before writing a book of broad generalizations okay?
