Man Pulls Gun on Rowdy, Line-Cutting Black Friday Shopper

http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/weird/NATL-Ma...86131.html

Quote:One man who got punched pulled a gun and that scattered shoppers, including the impatient line-cutter who took cover behind a refrigerator. Then he fled.

Carey says the man with the gun had a permit to carry the weapon and isn't being charged with a crime.

IMHO..

The idiot that pulled the firearm should be charged with stupidity!!!

People could have been hurt when running for cover. If I was in that waiting line I would be pulling iron also; as I am too old to run or dive for cover.

I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often. I did the Black Friday thing once, years ago, and I nearly pepper sprayed some bitch, who was getting ready to hit me with a softball bat, because I grabbed the last X-Box 360. People are fucking animals.

I just avoid these things, sit home and watch the idiots tear themselves apart for a sale. The only way I participate is via the internet.

Only in Texas would a gun owner get away with that. The idiot should have his license revoked. He already demonstrated poor judgement by being out on Black Friday is the first place!

Really? Based upon the limited information in the report he's in a place he has the right to be, he is assaulted in that place, and he responds to that with a level of force that stops the attack but leaves no one seriously injured.

Arguing for a license revocation due to your opinion of 'poor judgement' is, in my opinion, equivalent to the position of a PPD officer that argues licenses should be revoked because an open carrier has the 'wrong attitude'.

The story isn't clear... who fled? The gun owner or the asshat that punched the gun owner?
When they come for my guns; It is not my right, at that point,
but my responsibility to respond in the name of liberty.

There is too little information to determine that his "level of force response" was at all appropriate. We only know the gun owner was punched in the face. Considering that this occurred in a large crowd I stand by my assessment that it was unnecessary and reckless to pull a weapon. If it occurred in a dark ally one-on-one...probably justifiable, but not where there is too much potential for collateral damage should he have discharged his weapon.

Fortunately, the law makes no distinction in regards to the number of people in your vicinity. If you meet the legal standard for use of force, you don't have to be "alone" to exercise that right. As a matter of fact, my county DA mentioned in a presentation on gun laws that criminal charges for injuring an innocent bystander are an extremely low risk if/when the precipitating event is a justifiable use of force.

Of course, no one wants to hurt someone unintentionally, but you're not required to give up your own rights just because others are nearby.
