She would not have been justified in displaying the firearm in that manner under Missouri law, or that of many other states.

The law in the state of washington clearly does permit the display of a firearm in some circumstances in which the threat of death or serious bodily harm is not imminent. However,mI do not know enough about the legal definitions and case law of the State of Washington to judge whether saying that someone should watch something would amount to the "presently threatened use of force". Pax lives there, but lacking more background, I'm dubious.
