Yep...same here. Be a good witness and make sure you can call 911 and get the cops there as fast as possible,
But, if I had witnessed the altercation progress from the point of just words to where one of them whips out a knife or other weapon and is going to try to do harm or kill the other, then I may take action to stop the attack.
I may not know who the good guy or the bad guy (or girl) is but if the situation was just words and then escalates to a weapon being introduced, the person with the weapon automatically becomes the bad guy.

Pick a side and start cheering them on?
I am SOOO kidding.
Really, if no weapon presented itself, at very most I would do what another said by approaching and asking for assistance. Fighting, like sex, is usually a private thing. Usually, when people are just duking it out with words they will stop when they find they have an audience (that is USUALLY, there are your exceptions to the rule) but while no one is trying to slit throats with deli knives I don't see why any other weapon should come into the equation.
Be a good witness, if things REALLY start getting heated, call a store manager or 911, or make your presence known just by calmly saying, "Excuse me, is there a problem?" Dumb question, though it may be, you'd be surprised how many people simply say, "NO!" and storm off.

I would stay out of it. I wouldn't pull any guns unless there was a weapon brought into play and you were in danger your self. This sounds like a cat fight to me.

Could go either way. It will completely depend on the aggressor and other extenuating factors...like are they under the influence of any drugs or alcohol...are they one of those "hot-heads" that blows up easily anyway... Way too many factors to know that answer for sure until you're there.
