It shocked me during my recent OK CCW course: In this state, I cannot defend anyone other than my immediate family, employee (!) or employer (:p) Even grandchildren are not covered. If I see someone getting beaten or raped or threatened with a firearm, I cannot come to their aid. They are changing some laws as we speak, but this is ridiculous.

The instructor gave us a way around the grandchild thing, however: Your presence is Threat Level One (LE Scale). If I step near the incident and protest vocally (no threats) and the attention is diverted toward me, if it is considered an assault (verbal threats with apparent ability to carry them out), I may defend MYSELF. Legal weirdness…. That’s why lawyers are rich…
