Does a chair put me in danger of death or serious bodily injury? Probably. Would I draw and fire? No. I would run or hide.
1) We have seen that juries do not like self-defense in anything that can be described as a 'bar fight'.
2) It would be way too easy to hit an innocent bystander in a crowded restaurant.
3) Running away and/or cowering in a corner is a relatively good tactic to avoid this sort of thing in most cases. Put your manhood aside and deal with it.
4) I wouldn't be in the situation in the first place, in all likelihood. Even though I don't have a family, I don't go places that aren't that 'family friendly' type atmosphere. I just don't like it...it makes me uncomfortable to be around people who are irresponsible. I'd much rather go bowling than to a bar. Sometimes I think I should have been a child of the 50s instead of the 90s. I guess I am just a boring person :wave:
