The CCer getting out of the car should be dialing the magic digits and trying as hard as possible not to get involved because it does not directly involve him. Call me cold hearted, but if its not me or mine that's in trouble... I'm staying out of it besides calling the 5-0.
isn't there an article somewhere about the dangers of being involved, it was written by cops that have to respond to domestic violence calls. The same situation is faced by cops, ask them how they deal with it. (to state the obvious already...) A gun pointed at someone could mean just about anything without context, if I come across someone with a gun pointed at them I'm dialing 911 first, if I heard something like "give me money" or "come here baby" along with the weapon (and/or the victim screaming something along the lines of HELP) I'm definitely drawing.

CCers should only intervene in armed situations if they really know what they are doing.

If you are, it won't be by me. I have got to know exactly what is going on before diving in. I suspect most of us feel the same.

If my family is with me, I am getting them to safety no matter what is going on. My family comes first. I am of the mind set that it you do not know 100% what is going on you should step away and be a good witness. If you saw one person stabbing another person stab after stab after stab then I would think if you intend to get involved you should NOT use your gun but some other type of deterrent like pepper spray. If you are the kind of person and I do not mean that in a bad way that believes they are a sheep dog here to protect the sheep then you need to have a plan that does not revolve around a gun.
I remember we briefly discussed this in my ccw class. I feel it is best that my pistol be used to protect me and the ones I know so if i was not involved i would not draw my weapon just because another person has a gun... I would call the police and find cover.... not in that order. I hope other sheep dogs would do the same. unless you know the whole story find cover or get away
God invented cops so that firemen could have heroes too!
This is why eager gung-ho undercover and off-duty cops get shot, running into the action with guns and passion, while wearing civilian clothes. I must keep this in mind before pulling mine outside because other people don't know who or what you are when you get out of that car and run with a gun.
I hope that this never comes up...or do I? Just keep reading posts and stories and talking with gun people at stores and shows and ranges.
