Is grand theft auto not a felony? Is gta over once the perp has posession of the car or does it begin? If I fire a warning shot nd stop the criminal am I going to prison? Will a judge take my license? If I take o shot and pop his tire and he isn't allowed to get down the road and begin a hi speed chase, Am I going to prison , will I lose my license? I would think that would be a responsible move. Do I trust my g17 to make that shot with one bullet, even at 50yds? Yes I do, even under stress. Would i hesitate, no, I'm pretty sure stopping a violent felon is still legal.
