Actually family member that doesnt live with me. Moved to my state from other a while back.
He asked me this evening. "In this state its legal to stop an armed robbery using my firearm right"?
Me " Well legally yes if your defending a third party from serious bodily harm or death".
Him " So if a guy comes into a store im in with a gun points it at the cashier I can pull my 40 tell him to drop his weapon and stop the robbery." At this point a big grin starts to emerge on my friends face.
Me " No, I said it would be legal if all the criteria are met. I didnt say YOU could do any such thing"
Him " Hey wait a minute! If its legal why cant I do it???"
Me " You fired your 40 more than the 10 times we did when you first got it?"
Him Well ehh no but I can hit good with it"
Me " You still carry it with an empty chamber??"
Him " Yeah"
Me " So lets get this straight. Forget bystanders, the fact that the guy may not drop his gun when you tell him too and shoot you. And about a hundred other things that can go wrong. Your plan is that you goin to draw against the drop with a armed gunman, with what amounts to an unloaded gun until you rack the slide, get the drop on HIM and hope he drops the gun instead of blowing your head off while you do all this?"
Him " Well up till now thats what I was thinkin yeah"
Me " Like I said no YOU cant do it" But good luck with your plan I guess".
I cant help it some people just plain scare me.
Yikes! What a n00b!
Living a life free from fear, means being able to protect it at all times.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
Perhaps you'll have the opportunity to offer him some education to go along with the ridicule...
You should really just try to shoot a gun out of his hand.
