Gun owners know better than most that the unthinkable can sometimes happen—that knowledge is often a part of why they've chosen to own firearms in the first place. But one facet that's not often considered is what happens after a shot has been fired in self-defense. Even if your actions were perfectly legal and within the scope of the law, you could wind up facing legal issues—there's just no way to know how a situation may be viewed by the authorities.
