Utah Concealed Weapons Permit (Utah CCW)

Book Review - "After You Shoot" by Alan Korwin



One of the primary activities of a Utah Concealed Carry Permit holder should be to study and learn all they can about Utah's laws on justification of use of lethal force, and all other aspects of self-defense using a pistol.

This amazing book provides tremendous insight into several huge dilemmas that currently exist for all concealed carry permit holders who could potentially be forced to use lethal force to survive a violent encounter.

Once you drop the hammer, how do you avoid being arrested by police? And, what is the appropriate role of your defense attorney?

This book explores in detail the tremendous divergence of expert's opinions. The law allows you to invoke your right to remain silent, and to refuse questioning without your attorney present... however, most legal experts believe you also need to immediately call 911 and request medical attention and police assistance.

You will shortly learn that your goal of not being arrested (because you have committed no crime by using justifiable deadly force to avoid being killed by an attacker) is in direct conflict with the goals of police and prosecutors, who you will also learn are "not your friends". Anything you say to the 911 dispatcher is recorded and will be used against you in court, and to discredit you in the media as well. But, if you fail to immediately make this call, most juries may view this negatively. See the conflict with your 5th Amendment rights against self-incrimination?

This book contains the opinions both for and against a very controversial new idea the author describes, concerning reading to investigating officers his proposed "Adnarim" (miranda spelled backwards) Statement. You are left to evaluate the many interesting, but conflicting opinions presented, and then to form your own strategy as to how best to proceed, should you ever find yourself in this unfortunate circumstance. I found this all extremely helpful, and have fine-tuned my potential 911 call content and my own "Police Statement" using several of the ideas contained in this book.

Most attorneys agree that a defendant should immediately invoke his right to remain silent and refuse to speak with investigators without his attorney present, but this also creates a difficult situation that may be viewed by a jury as you having "something to hide"; not to mention how very difficult it will be to actually keep this silence, when by doing so you also loose good will with the police whom you hope will not charge or arrest you for your actions.

The arguments presented are all very informative and interesting, and I now feel much better prepared to potentially deal with the unbelievable trauma and confusion that inevitably results by being involved in a defensive shooting. I feel every armed citizen who wants to give themselves the best chance of retaining their freedom and resources should study this important work, and formulate their own plan to be prepared to deal appropriately with this event.
