In the video below, cutlerylover tells the world that he pulled a gun on a mysterious man on his roof. cutlerylover says he didn’t actually aim his gat at the stranger, but he brandished nonetheless. He goes on to admit . . .
“If he ran I would have shot him.”
I’d have ask the roof guy why he was atop my domicile before exposing my firearm. I’d only expose my ballistic solution if I was convinced the interloper posed an imminent, credible threat of grievous bodily harm or death. Say, if he’d had a gun.
OK, sure, I might place my hand discreetly on my firearm. But pull it out? Nope.
What would you do?
[Note: if you brandish your gun for whatever reason, call the cops and report it. I know this could open-up a can or worms — especially if you live in a gun averse state. On the other hand, the subject of your brandishment could claim that you threatened him. Bye-bye gun rights.]
