As my State is one not permitting CCW
, I'm not up on the laws re CCW, and I realize it will vary somewhat from state to state.
My WHAT IF question is this. Say your out and about, and you happen to see an assult underway, where it appears to you the assilant is threatening someone's life. Are you allowed to pull your weapon, order the assaliant to cease and hit the ground, and if he continues his attack you can shoot him?
Now your not playing Cop, just using force to save someone elses life, rather than your own.
Are you on your way to the "big house", or would most states justify your actions? I'll guess it depends on how good (and expensive) your lawyer is.
