So, lots of questions on how I got to a CCW situation.
If I were able to aviod it...probably would have.
Here are the details.
Left resteraunt at T- 2 minutes.
Drove through empty downtown for one minute.
at T- 30 seconds, made a turn into unexpected RIOT
situation with windows down.
at T-20 secons, street person jumped into window (now surrounded by 1+ thousand roiters).
In retrospect, wouldn't have been in ATL that weekend.
Having been in ATL and seeing that, drew pistol @ T-20 seconds.
2 seconds later, guy jumped through open window.
had gun drawn at T-20.
@ T-18, guy is leaning inside car.
Threat made him leave.
For all those who recommend shooting, please let me know the legal prescedence for shooting a guy leaning in your window asking for money.
I have gotten lots of good replies, but a lot are shoot first, ask questions later.
Having taken lethal force before, not sure if this was justified in GA.
Any legit comments on GA law/cases. ?
It worked out NOT shooting here. If it had not worked out, would this be a justified shoot under law? Again, when is the APPROPRIATE time to shoot?
What if's aside?
