Not true, you introduce the weapon as soon as you become actively involved as a CCW holder and carrier of a handgun. Because YOU brought the weapon, now there IS a weapon in the confrontation where there was none before. This is the Chess and Maturity part... ya gotta think things through.
You are assuming the other person doesn't have a weapon. I assume that anyone I meet does have a weapon. I hope your assumptions don't leave you on the short end of the stick one day. Your also assuming that other have not though about different scenarios, you are wrong on that point. Maybe, just maybe, others either think differently or have a different set of standards than you do.
It is like the police officer that attempts an arrest of an unarmed, but violent and resisting offender. As soon as the officer becomes active in the arrest process, now there is a weapon present where there wasn't one before. Maybe the officer has absolutely no intention of drawing his weapon because there is no reason for deadly force. However, he must be conscious of the fact that he is wearing a handgun and he must act to protect that handgun. There was an old statistic that stated about 20% of police are killed with their own weapon. The handgun was snatched out of the officer’s holster, or, wrestled away from them somehow and then turned on the officer with murderous results. Offenders have admitted they had no intention of harming the officer, UNTIL AFTER the fight began and escalated. Once things reach a certain plateau then the offender took the gun that was available to them, the officers, and then used it on that officer.
No this scenario is nothing like the officer trying to arrest an unarmed but violet offender. I don't know that the OP said he was trying to arrest the guy who broke into the car. It is a given that the officer does have a weapon, the BG always knows that. For those of us that carry concealed, the only time that somone should know about the weapon is when we present it. If you go back and read my original post on this, I stated that I didn't think it was a good thing for him to pull his shirt up to expose the weapon.
Carrying a handgun means there IS a weapon with you, and, that weapon must be considered in how you behave and all your actions. If you choose to jump into every little fray you run across, then know this, every little fray you run across will have at least one weapon involvement. It is a thinkers game...
I don't think anyone on this forum thinks they should jump in on every little fray. I have been on this forum for a couple of years now, and have yet to see that in any serious post. Yes when we get involved there will be at least one weapon on one person, that doesn't mean that the weapon is involved in the scenario. Although to steal someone elses signature line, the best weapon is your brain, so in that sense there will be at least two weapons in each scenario, but probably not evenly matched.
There are those on here that will not simply stand by and let some things under certain circumstances go without trying to intervene. That level is different for different people. There is not a single right answer for each scenario. What is right for me isn't always right for you. We each have to live with our own choices.
