Should You Give a Verbal Warning Before Shooting?

October 18, 2021

Should you offer a verbal warning before taking action in a self-defense situation? Gun Talk’s Tom Gresham is joined by Brian McKenna, author of Cops Under Fire: 12 Gripping Stories of Real-Life Police Shootouts, to discuss the issuance of a verbal warning before shooting. Is it a good idea from a legal standpoint? Brian offers concealed carriers some advice in a self-defense situation, and Tom recounts scenes from the First Person Defender series.
