The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

So to prevent yourself from being shot, I would strongly suggest you put the gun in it's holster when the cops roll up.

Now you roll up in driveway and in the garage you see a man holding a gun on a man laying on the floor.................how do you (as a cop) know which one is the bad guy??? How do you know, the BG didn't get the drop on the homeowner?
the Good guy is going to holster his weapon and say "I'm the home owner and I called you" the cops are still going to hold there gun on BOTH OF THE MEN, until they establish who is who. But the guy holding a gun, and making a poor move, is going to get shot......I would hate to get shot by accident
HAPPY NEW YEAR
An aside I did a pic for a defense lawyer showing the persecutor smoking a joint with a stripper. That he used to discredit photo's the prosecutor had of the defendant beating the victim half to death. The lawyer said if I could produce pics of the persecutor smoking a joint with a stripper o my home computer. The persecutor and LEO with all their resources could have just as easily created the photos entered into evidence of his client beating the victim. Before I get flamed the so called victim needed deserved and earned the beating he got. I was honored to help the defendant beat the charge
