Do you leave and become the good witness or do you attempt to end the guys rampage and hopefully keep him from killing a few innocent people?

    Was trying to make this a poll but somehow managed to screw that up......oh well,
    Even if I wasn't a Police Officer that one would be a no brainer. The guy would be dead before he hit the floor. No way I'm gonna hope" to escape with my knee's and hope" he doesn't start shooting me in the process not to mention all the people I could save from death or being maimed permanently the guy would go down and I would not even hesitate.

    Simple determination of A O J here. Also, in FL I have the right to use deadly force in your situation because it will stop a Forcible Felony from occurring.

    BANG BANG. Then I'd finish my Grand Slam breakfast.

    I'm certainly not gonna be the next one! I have a family. Nor is that mother over there. Or that child two booths down.

    HKinNY ---> I see understand what your asking but I really am not gonna ask this person male or female what there likes and dislikes are. What there turn on and turn offs are in dating. For some reason I don't think you gonna get the response your lookin for when they turn around to answear you. Well maybe you will but I'm not taking the chance.

    I've read it before some places. Rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.....

    I would empty my freakin' gun into his back, his head, and the lower part of the back of his head. I seriously doubt that once the barrage starts he's gonna get off any shot at me that I need to worry about.

    I'd like to think that if I wasn't choking on my food, I'd shoot the *******. Even if the victims are'nt my family, they are someone elses.

    I've always believed the best defense, is a strong offense.

    TN allows defense of yourself or a third party if there is a legitimate fear of loss of life. So, center mass.
