What protections are we afforded if we use deadly force? By Tony Pan Sanfelipo
Over the last few years, we’ve seen and heard a lot about police officers using deadly force on civilians. Most often the ruling comes down as “justifiable use of force.”
What about us, as citizens? What protections are we afforded if we use deadly force? It’s widely accepted across the country that you have a right to defend yourself, using lethal force if necessary. Determining the justification of lethal force comes down to the “reasonable man” doctrine. In other words, what force would a reasonable man use if faced with the same situation as you?
Much of the country has some form of concealed carry law, making this information even more important. Generally, deadly force is justified only when the threat of death or serious injury is imminent from an attacker. If you’ve decided to carry a gun for self-defense, you have a great responsibility to know the law and how to properly handle your weapon.
In a bold move that only Captain Kirk himself could justify, William Shatner has started a company that creates custom futuristic steampunk motorcycles. Shatner posted a link to the new company’s website on his Facebook page. “Excited about my partnership with American Wrench in forming Rivet Motors,” the post reads. “This is the cycle of the future.” – See more at: http://www.bikernettrikes.com/pages/WIILLIAM_SHATNER_COMMISSIONS_SPACE_AGE_TRIKE.aspx#sthash.9wBtjuC7.dpuf

It’s a cold winter day in the heart of Oklahoma City, the largest city in Oklahoma, as the tight crew at Brass Balls Cycles does exactly what they love to do, build bitchin’ custom cycles, bobbers, choppers, and FXRs. In this sketchy world we live in the boss, Dar Holdsworth is not afraid to do anything supporting the chopper dream.
He builds and rebuilds vintage bikes, wrecked bikes, and old Jap bikes for returning service guys through Pros for Vets, at no charge to the vet. “We could make a living if he would stop building bikes for free,” said Mrs. Holdsworth. About a year and a half ago he stumbled across an overseas customer, from Dubai, Murtaza Moulvi, who bought one of his bikes, a Digger. When they met initially, the young customer planned to open a coffee shop in an industrial portion of the city, away from the glitz.
