Phone calls to make if “NO” rounds were fired (2)

  1. Call 911. Do not let the attacker, or alleged attacker or witness report the incident differently that it happened. This phone call is critical, keep the call short and to the point:

A. My name is _____________ and I need to report an attack, a possible attack, at address, intersection, etc.

B. The individual (give a brief description of the attacker) and (ran off, drove off, etc.)

C. I do have a permit to carry a firearm, and exposed my firearm to the attacker, but I did not use it.

D. I’ve called my attorney and (he or she) will contact you to schedule time to make a statement, here is my number. Be prepared to answer any questions related to the alleged attacker or your contact information, but do not answer any questions about your actions. Be prepared to hang up if the questioning gets persistent.

2. Call your attorney. If you can’t reach your attorney, leave a message and contact information for where and how he or she can reach you.


Phone calls to make if rounds WERE fired (3)

  1. Call 911. It is your obligation to seek medical attention if someone is injured! Remember that you are being recorded! Keep your 911 calls short and to the point:

A. My name is ___________ and I need to report an attack at (address, intersection, etc.)

B. The attacker (ran away, is injured, need an ambulance).

D. I need to (go help my family, watch the attacker, get to a safer place) so I’m going to hang up now.

E. Hang up.

2. Call your attorney.

3. Call your family. Inform them that you’ve been involved in a defensive situation and instruct them to speak with no one – not the police, not the media, no one! Tell family members to inform the police that they do not consent to search of your home or property and that they will answer no questions unless your attorney is present.

🚨When the police arrive at the scene

  • Place your Firearm back in your holster or off your body before the police approach
  • Put your hands in the air as High possible.
  • Comply with all instructions from the police. Keep your hands where they can see them.
  • This is not the time to explain you are the good guy.
  • Don’t argue and be prepared to be pushed to the ground, handcuffed, and placed in the back of a squad car.

🚨A four part statement to the police.  

  1. I was attacked (by that person – or by person who ran in that direction)
  2. There is the evidence (point out anything that the police may miss or may not realize was used as a weapon)
  3. That person, those people were witnesses
  4. I’ve spoken with my attorney or left a message with my attorney and I’m going to wait until (he or she) arrives to give a statement and sign a complaint

🚨The only two things you should say after you’ve completed the four part statement:

“ I want my lawyer present before I answer any questions, and until then, I invoke my right to remain silent.”

“ I do NOT consent to a search of my Person or my Property”

***Any interview with the police should be delayed as long as possible, but at least 48 hours.***
