There was a physical struggle, but no weapons. There was no imminent jeopardy. Had he accidentally fired the gun while pointing it at others...tragedy could have occurred. Even those with no common sense can still get an LTC...all they gotta do is give correct answers and hit a target. Doesn't mean they have common sense.
on a side note,
I wasn't there, but based on the facts
- two guys struggling with 1 guy who was screaming for help -
but I would like to believe, I would intervene in some way whether I was carrying or not.BUT..... by intervention, lets be clear....
If I saw it as described in the article, no weapons and no punches being thrown,
I would have called 911,
and walked over and informed them that the police were on the way and NOT pulled any weapon since they did not have any.
If they proceeded to come after me, or produce a weapon, things change.
But as described in the article, they probably would have been fine with that,
police would come and explanations made and everyone would be on their way.
