Members’ Voice Video: What to Do Next If You Display Your Firearm in Oklahoma

 

Sherry Hale, Member Ambassador: Hey, members. 2016 was a phenomenal year for us here at U.S. Law Shield. Did you know that our family has grown to over 210,000 members? And we’re only getting bigger. But I want you to remain vigilant because this time of year crime does go up.

One important thing I wanted to talk to you guys about today is, if you do have to display your firearm to a threat, what you immediately need to do afterwards. So, I thought it would be helpful if we spoke to our Independent Program Attorney to get some insight on this.

U.S. Law Shield of Oklahoma Independent Program Attorney Robert Robles: What should you do after you display your handgun? Well, the thing is, displaying it is not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about what do you do after you pull it on somebody or use it in a threatening manner in self-defense.

What you do is call 911. Keep it short. Tell them you’re a victim of a crime. Tell them your location. Ask for services such as an ambulance, because there’s the guy who is either dead or dying, [and he will need] firemen or the police or something else. Now, then, hang up. Keep it short. Remember, 911 will try to call you back. Don’t answer the call.

Call U.S. Law Shield on the emergency hotline.

Sherry Hale, Member Ambassador: As an example, I recently was speaking to Santiago, one of our members, and he
was involved in a road rage incident where he had to display his firearm. Santiago did the correct thing. He called 911 first and then U.S. Law Shield’s hotline.

Thank you, Santiago, for sharing your story with me.

Members, if you have a great story relating to owning a firearm or how your U.S. Law Shield membership has benefited you, we want to hear about it. Share your story at memberstories@uslawshield.com, and maybe we will include it in our next newsletter.
