          Students will understand the FIVE situations where deadly force may be used to protect persons, TWO situations where deadly force may be used to protect premises, and TWO situations where deadly force may be used in law enforcement situations by private persons.  They will understand the reasons cutting against citizens’ arrest with a firearm. They will understand the situations where firearms may be used to protect persons and property from dogs and wild animals.

          Students will understand the limits on use of force, including provocation, retreat, claim of right to property and warning.  Students will be able to apply the concept of “reckless harm to innocent 3rd persons” in “active shooter” situations, and less imminent situations.

          Students will learn the alternatives to the use of deadly force, e.g.  threats, legal avenues, non-deadly force and retreat.
