    Saw man crossing pull a gun against a car

    So i was walking across to Publix from the parking lot and this old man was trying cross the road ahead of me into Publix and this young guy in a car was driving fast apparently didn't want to let the old guy go through, and just out of nowhere saw the man pull out a pistol against the car and told him to stop and the young car def stopped the car in no time. Me and couple of other
    shoppers saw it. Just curious what you guys would say about this?

    I would say that wasn't smart or legal on that guy's part.

    Arrest the old guy on brandishing, take away his firearm, take away his concealed permit if he has one--probably take away his car if he has one--sounds like he is a bit senile--let him keep his dentures.

    So how many rounds did he fire? Did he get good windshield penetration? Should he have used a different caliber? What? He didn't shoot? I thought we were to never pull our guns unless we intended to use them. The old guy probably was filled with the holiday spirit and was trying to be nice, so he didn't shoot. That's the true Christmas spirit, something our younger generation is missing.

    ^^^ This answer works for me. ^^^

    If I drew down on every idiot that didn't stop for me in a crosswalk or on a parking lot, I would wear out every one of my holsters.

    The man mentioned above definitely does not need to be carrying.

    And it's irresponsible Ding Dongs like this man that give us Law Abiding Citizens/Gun Owners a bad Rap! I don't know the situation but if your information is correct I would of turned this individual in, Period. We as Responsible Gun Owners should not tolerate this type of behavior at all because this is what the Anti-Gunners love to get a hold of to further their AGENDA!

    ^Wow.

    In Europe no less.
    He obviously was either a criminal or a very high up the chain military/political figure.
    In either case, cops called.

    Happened to my sister & family this summer.
    BIL driving, my sister and 3 kids.
    Dummy cuts my BIL off very close and almost causes an accident, BIL beeps horn prior to a possible impact, then changes lanes a few seconds later, then the guy flashes/points a pistol at them.
    They call the police, cops pull the guy over at the exit he got off at in Chesterfield MI. and they are watching him get busted.
    The police come over to my sisters truck, and asks if they saw the gun, they say yes, 13 YO nephew says he saw it real good,, black with SS slide I believe, "probably a 9mm" the nephew says.
    The police search guys truck and find it.
    Cops were amazed nephew was able to describe it down to the caliber.
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    In Bold:What planet or state do you live in/on? "may not have been correct? The man is an idiot and should be locked up or put in a padded cell. The way some folks might read your comment is that though you support the old gentleman in a way.

    We need to all stop protecting idiots that do the wrong thing with guns. Some folks int his forum go to great extents to not speak out when a firearm is brandished or used improperly. We seem to defend folks that are stupis enough to go to NYC or board a plane with a firearm and chalkk it up to "we all make mistakes". Some of these are idiotic mistakes. If one can make a simple stupid mistake and we stick up for them time and time again you all wonder why anti's think we are irresponsible.

    The fact a very small minority of gun owners are stupid and irresponsible....but we try to give them the benefit of the doubt when they screw up. Most likely because we emphathize with them or disagree with a stupid law.

    Just like the idiot lady that pulled a gun on the kids bullying her daughter/son last week. Gun orgs need to step up and condem these folks in front of the media (of course after establishing the facts) to show that we are serious about folks being prosecuted.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
