So here I am, packing to leave for a murder trial that I’ll call Case One. My primary carry pistol on the trip will be a Beretta 96 semiauto, caliber .40. Why? Because one of those was the death weapon, and on short notice, the attorney may need me to go to a range the night before I testify, and film the speed of reaction and firing of this pistol to show to the jury.
One issue in Case One is that on the night in question, the defendant, who was licensed to carry a concealed weapon in the jurisdiction where the shooting went down, was also carrying a spare magazine. The other side is indicating that they’ll use this to try to show “malice” and “enough bullets to shoot 23 people,” in hopes of making the unfortunate defendant look like some sort of Rambo.
