CARGO Rockwall Gun Club – What’s in a name?
When engaging a criminal perpetrator with your legally owned, legally licensed carry handgun, you face two TWO to FOUR battles.
First: the battle for your life. You fire on a person threatening you.
Second: you may have another battle with a law enforcement person who just doesn’t believe civilians have the right to keep and bear arms.
Third: law enforcement may judge you in the wrong, arrest you, toss you in jail and then a prosecutor may decide to prosecute you, based on charges brought by the arresting officer.
Fourth: family members of the deceased perpetrator will very likely sue you.
Your first battle is a matter of circumstances and your judgement.
All three of the succeeding battles are a matter of what comes out of your mouth after you kill the perpetrator who threatened your life, starting with the 911 call.
What should you say? What should you NOT say?
Battles two and three can be costly. Very costly. Bail bond, criminal lawyer, lost revenue from being off work, emotional trauma to yourself and your family.
Battle four will be the most costly.
How does one prepare in advance to manage these battles?
CARGO Rockwall Gun Club serves to educate citizens and law enforcement officers on pertinent law and behaviors.
CARGO: Citizens Association for Responsible Gun Ownership
CARGO Rockwall was spawned from our parent organization CARGO Wylie just over one year ago.
One of our goals is to foster civil, respectful relations between citizen and law enforcement. Another goal is to educate both parties on pertinent law. Along the way, our volunteer experts teach various firearm subjects from selection of appropriate concealed-carry firearms, to gun accessories, to ammunition. We also teach what to say, what not to say and how to behave before and after the shooting incident.
We are citizens serving citizens. There are no dues or costs of any kind to participate.
You can connect with CHL instructors, federally licensed firearms dealers, law enforcement officers and attorneys.
We meet every SECOND THURSDAY of every month in the private dining room of the Soulman’s Bar-B-Que in Rockwall between Applebee’s and Lake Pointe Church on the eastbound frontage road of I-30.
Join us a little before 6:00 pm to go through the serving line. (This is how the owner pays expenses for our free meeting room.) Then find a seat in the private dining room. Formal presentations begin promptly at 6:00 pm and end promptly at 7:00 pm.
Stay as long as you wish after 7:00 pm to visit with CHL instructors, firearms dealers, law enforcement officers, elected officials, prosecutors and attorneys. The mix of experts varies, depending on real world schedules.
