I'm glad the kid in the car stopped.
This is a discussion on Saw man crossing pull a gun against a car within the Carry & Defensive Scenarios forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; 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 ...
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'm glad the kid in the car stopped.
"There's something in me I can't describe. It's as if I saw a strange darkness before me, into which I must go."
I would say that wasn't smart or legal on that guy's part.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
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.
"If you make something idiot proof, someone will make a better idiot."
Sounds like brandishing prevent an assault with a vehicle, eh?
Statistically, dementia is one of the greatest defeatable threats to my loved ones. The solution is to fund charities that hunt for a cure. This will also reduces the total amount of my family that has to go through it. I'm basically racing against odds.
You didn't say where in Fl. BUT if its south Fl. i can understand. There are some real idiots driving down there.
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!
The old guy may not have been correct but at least he is still alive and not run over by some young punk kid....
Wait, guns aren't a good replacement for traffic signals?
Tell that to this guy:
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.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards
If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

Sounds like he was Old Schoolin' there............
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!”
