What I did imply is when you kill the wrong person, or when you get killed, by a civilian in a situation like Aurora, who gets prosecuted?
The four firearms safety rules apply but so does the CO statute that allows for someone to use deadly force against what they believe to be threats of imminent serious bodily injury or death against themselves or a third party.
If you are in the theater, and someone starts popping off with an AR-15 into the crowd from one end of the theater, and someone else starts popping off with a 45 auto at the guy with the AR-15, who are you gonna shoot? Who's the threat?
Before you start shooting, do a threat assessment, know your target. Chances are the guy with the 45 in the theater knows what he's doing, get to him, formulate a tactical plan if possible and go after the other dude.
