If I ever have to shoot someone breaking into my house or some other such lawful use of force, when the time comes for the media cameras to come circling around
and they want to interview me, here's what I'm going to say (or some variation thereof)

"Thankyou for you interest but due to the chronic misrepresentation of gun owners and gun rights in the media, I will be conveying the details of my story to the new media, i.e. internet blogs & forums. You may read about today's events at www.ar15.com, or perhaps http://www.thewaronguns.com/ or www.falfiles.com. Now please get off my lawn before I have to blade you at 45 degrees. Goodnight"

Please don't name drop. You can say the rest, but don't name drop ARFCOM, they'd probably throw you in jail.

Almost exactly what I was thinking!

Well played!

I believe "No Comment" would probably work more in your favor.

Maybe I would be less specific. But definitley I would rebuff their questions and tell them why. Just today on the radio I heard the phrase "2nd amendment rights of hunters for hunting" makes me sick. Is that narrative out of some playbook to brainwash people via repetition? Barf.

They should have a "Don't Talk to the Media" video to go along with the "Don't Talk to the Police" one....

than while walking away say "fuck what an adrenelin dump......fuck you arock."

Just remember to wear your 3 wolf shirt and the media will be eating out of your hand.

" whats his screen name.. "

Um. Yeah.

I'd have to concur with "No comment".

Fixed it for you

Until I have talked to my lawyer and received a No Bill from a grand jury that this was a legal shoot I will not be talking to the media. Thank you.

'No comment'.

no, no you won't.

in fact your head will be spinning so fast from all the legal and civil implications and police interviews and lawyer consultations and how to pay for your grand episode that you'll just duck and hide from any media that attempts to interview you..................if your half way intelligent that is.

Because, "I was in fear of my life," is just too complicated.
Link Posted: 11/3/2009 3:27:04 AM EST
sounds like you desire the attention and would want the media on your lawn and would be upset if no one showed to talk to you-which would probably happen because deep down no one cares about any shooting you might be involved in...unless you wanted them to and if thats the case you should probably get some help
Link Posted: 11/3/2009 4:03:37 AM EST
This is the best advice that you will get in this matter:

STFU
Link Posted: 11/3/2009 4:05:32 AM EST
How about

"Yes I shot him and I hope he burns in hell!" ?

Yours was little better than his.


Also, can't you request the police not release your name to the media?

Sadly, I'm sure there are many here who couldn't wait to log in and talk about it. Epic draw-down story. Blah,blah, blah and all that........

Please don't.

This did not go down as OP anticipated.

If I am ever involved in a shooting, here is what I'll do....


...everything I can to keep my ass out of jail, including, but not limited to, staying the hell off of ARFCOM during the entire ordeal.
