"He started to hit me, so I reacted from there," a bruised but smiling Kemp said Friday. "I got him out into the street and held his arm. I foot-sweeped him down and I was trying to get a hold of the gun. He banged me up a little bit but my main concern was the gun."
Sounds like, whether his college wresting team trained with weapons or not
, he instinctively knew the right procedure: 1) muzzle aversion (inferred from "he started to hit me") 2) positional advantage (foot-sweeped him down) 3) control of the weapon (He banged me up a little bit but my main concern was the gun).
