This seemed maddeningly difficult until I realized that you don't actually need a "firing line" to form in order to use a human shield. The trophy description is a bit misleading. A "line" is when four guards all stop and take aim at once. Usually, you're prompted to hit "X" to grab another guard to shield yourself. This doesn't happen often, and is kind of difficult to pull off reliably.

However, if just one guard stops, fiddles with his rifle, and gets a yellow triangle over his head, he's going to fire. Just run up to some other guard and hit "X" to use him as a shield. This counts.

The best place to find groups of guards with rifles is either the guard station at the northwest of New Orleans, or (my preference) the open yard with the gallows which kind of looks like a big asterisk * on the map, east and a little north of the Assassin HQ. Get them to chase you around. Turn the camera as needed so you are running away but can still see them, and when one with a gun stops and gets a yellow triangle over his head, run up to another guard (you only have a second or two in order to pull it off) and hit "X" to use him as a shield.

You can check your progress by pressing Start, then go to Options -> Stats -> Fights and Kills. Look at the "ENEMIES KILLED IN HUMAN SHIELD" value.

Progress toward this doesn't save if you are killed, or if you exit the game. In fact, I'm not sure what triggers it to save. I thought that pick-pocketing somebody afterwards would, since you get a "save" icon, but looking now, I'm back down to just 4 for this count, and I already got the trophy. So be careful. Don't die, and run away to recover if you're in trouble.
