    Only if your the guy being attacked by the guy with the Knife
    otherwise its not legal.The other two guys (if not armed) do
    not justify deadly force.

    They'd have been right to shoot here. The story says three masked men with knives...that's plenty.

    I strongly disagree!

    Three guys attack my car and they will be dodging lead...NO QUESTIONS ASKED...there will not be time for questioning.
    Bust a car window wearing a mask? (I'm going to be darn sure that I see you coming.) You have already demonstrated a real threat.
    Come running up on me in a parking lot (outside my vehicle) wearing a mask and you will be getting a loud verbal warning to stay back. Failure to heed the appropriate warning will be followed by three loud noises...2 CoM/1 H...PERIOD!
    The Surgeon General has determined that attacking a 62 year old in a parking lot can be hazardous to your health.
    This is not a game, nor will I ever view it as such. I will protect myself and my wife/passanger(s), and do all that I can to ensure that I make it home at night in one piece...whatever happens, happens.

    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    So that justifies someone beating one of the band members?
    I'm not a fan either, but I don't go around assulting people.

    Actually Mr. Vedder was the assaulter, not the assaultee. Him and his friend ( some baseball player) did however loose the fight.

    Depends where you live. Here in Vermont (and in most civilized states) a person has the right to defend others with deadly force.
    64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.

    I watched the video and the driver has a total lack of situational awareness. If I was the driver, up against three attackers with knives (all within 25 feet), I'm not even going to draw. I have a 5,000 pound weapon at my disposal, so that's going to be my first choice.
