If we must stop a threat with a weapon, it will be life changing experience. I suspect that there will be an emotional and financial impact. What should we consider doing to mitigate the impact of defending someone?
You could start with legal coverage - having access to a lawyer saves time and money.
USCCA (www.usconcealedcarry.com) and US Law Shield (www.uslawshield.com) are two companies that I know of.
If you learn of other options, please share.
