JPX VS LETHAL FORCE
With the recent
Zimmerman trial, most gun owners need to realize that their right to
"USE" lethal force is more dubious then ever today. This trial
literally put use of lethal force in the spotlight and the next time a man or
woman tries to defend themselves, the chances are that law enforcement will
look at the situation in a different light.
The media used race as a
basis for their defense and it most likely will be used again and again. We
now have minority youths attacking stores and people as "flash mobs"
and because of the way the media handled the Zimmerman trial, many of these
store owners cannot fight back using lethal force without the potential of
media reprisal. Just because you can carry a gun, "Doesn't mean you can
When you walk out of
your house with your gun, you are just asking for trouble. We are not talking
about bounty hunters, security guards or armored transport. We are talking
about everyday people that are not considered by the media and law
enforcement as "experienced" to use lethal force on another human
being. This is where you run into trouble.
Ask yourself, what
justifies "lethal force"? In what kind of situation would you pull
your gun and use it? Every person carrying a gun needs to evaluate this
before walking out the door with a loaded weapon.
Think about what happens
when you fire your gun:
1. The bullet hits the
perpetrator and wounds them; probably a lawsuit from that person for
aggravated assault unless you have absolute proof you needed to shoot them.
Cost of a defense attorney, $10,000.00 deposit on up.
2. The bullet misses the
perpetrator, but hits a bystander. This will guarantee a lawsuit and
potentially time in jail. Again, attorney costs possibly jail.
3. The bullet kills the
perpetrator. This is where things get interesting. Law enforcement will
arrest you until they work out the details if this was a righteous shooting.
If there is any doubt, again you have to hire your attorney and put your life
and families lives through hell. Most importantly, think about the FINANCIAL
COSTS to your family in this event.
4. You pull your gun and
the perpetrator takes it away from you. In this situation, it will mean life
or death for you. I know of a lot of men that buy guns for their girlfriends
or wives without even thinking about if they could pull the trigger or not.
In most cases, the answer is NOT! Most women are not programmed to kill
another person. They would most likely become victims of their own guns in a
In all, the downside of
using a lethal firearm outside your home is close to 100%! This recent trial
will intensify law enforcement to put more time and effort into investigating
every shooting. If there is slightest issue out of place, you could either
end up broke defending yourself from a lawsuit and arrested or in jail.
WHY TAKE THIS RISK? The
JPX works just like your gun, with that major exception of KILLING A PERSON!
The JPX fires 23 feet with a 2 foot spread, which is close to the situation
that you would use your firearm in. In most cases if you fired your firearm
over 25 feet, a judge would question why you didn't choose to run. This is
where things get dubious in court.
The JPX will knock down
just about anyone without the legal ramifications that you have with lethal
guns. Due to the spread of the shot, the odds of hitting the perpetrator are
much greater. In addition, if there are multiple assailants, the JPX can hit
them with one shot. Because you are not shooting to kill, you can use the JPX
in many more situations where a gun wouldn't be needed. The JPX is not
considered a firearm and can be carried in most places that a firearm isn't
allowed. It doesn't have to be registered like a firearm and is considered a
"pepper spray dispenser".
Why risk the financial
security of your family by carrying a lethal firearm, when there are other
