So I will be moving to the Twin Cities, MN area this summer. I have my non-resident Utah CCL. Therefore I'm legal to carry in the state of MN. I just got a job Repossessing cars, boats, motorcycles, etc... I will be carrying because I know I would be PO'ed if someone came on my land and tried to take my stuff, even if I haven't been paying it. I know I'll probably catch some flack for my career choice, nobody wants to be "that guy" but it pays the bills, so there's not a whole lot I can do. K so I have a quick scenario for you guys; chances are it will probably happen; depending how long I stay with this company.
If someone comes out of their house and is all PO'ed cause you're bout to take his car or whatever. So the guy is all ticked off; and he pulls out a taser gun. Then he points the taser gun at me; am I justified to draw and fire?
I could understand all arguements:
1. Well it isn't deadly force. So you cant shoot the guy.
2. Does a taser constitute "major bodily harm"? And how do I know whether or not the guy is going to taser me n take my weapon?
3. What if I mistake the taser gun for an actual gun? Then I would consider myself justified because I thought he was going to shoot me.
Just wanted experienced and seasoned insights into the matter. Thanks guys
