I voted not to take the shot ? Depending if threat level is rising or if I could get off a clean shot without putting anyone else in danger ? A lot of variables to smoke over in a short period of time, I'd like to think If all the planets aligned I could take the shot but only if was sure I wasn't going to add to the problem. You guys do give some thorough perspective and I hope are in the restaurant when or of it ever jumps off

Too many variables to say for certain.

Lots to think about..
I don't think I'm capping him unless the circumstances look dire for all/any innocents.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

Don't ever think that the reason I'm peaceful is because I don't know how to be violent

When I started this thread my goal was to stimulate a discussion and read varying takes on the hypothetical situation. I kept it that simple and general of a scenario in order to get those varied responses.

I agree with Bark'n and AZ. The alter ego rule exists in many states that allow you to act against someone who has put another person in imminent danger of death or great bodily injury with you assuming that other person could be you. Then again, some scenarios are just not so simple for a one answer fits all. People around, possible collateral injuries, your sense of perp and situation et al.
