The 21 Foot Rule | Brillianter.com
That link describes the 21-Foot Rule and some issues regarding it. Please check it out, then come back and respond to my point below...
In another thread here, someone was describing an actual incident where a bum had approached his vehicle at a stoplight, if I remember correctly, and started yelling and acting aggressive, moving forward a couple of times quickly as people do who are attempting to provoke you.
Now, let's talk about the 21-foot Rule in reference to this. I guess I may not have really understood it when it was described in CCW class. I heard the story and that we qualify at 21 ft because that was the farthest distance that someone could get you before you could get them with a CCW. But how does it relate to this situation, legally?
Using the 21-ft Rule, does this mean that when the aggressive bum got within/crossed the 21 feet line that we can Legally--and really should--draw and set up a possibly-necessary shot? When applying the 21-ft Rule, this seems to be the reason for the 21 feet, right??
Please opine--and don't be afraid to call me an idiot--I've been called worse...and sometimes I'm an idiot!
