Thread: CCW Incident (Input please)

  1. #11
    the police around here, if you call them and say someone is making threats to you, they wont be there for an hour... it took 6 minutes for them to arrive from a phone call involving a gun... i did indeed each for my hone to call 911, once i noticed i did not have it, i instructred my friend to. at that point in time the driver was already onthe phone with them so i said let the cops come.

    If the facts are EXACTLY as you are telling them, and you or one of your friends did not instigate the altercation by saying something to the driver of the truck, then I would consider seeking the advice of another attorney. But again...doesn't seem like you have time to do so.
    i have spoken with 3 attorneys and have hired one to represent me... we have been to two court cases and am going tomorrow to try to see how tngs are looking and seettle for a plea aggreement

    I may be wrong but I don't believe defensive display of a firearm is legal in Ohio. It isn't in most states. Where not legal such display usually constitutes brandishing or menacing. Me thinks your training was defective. This is why I feel a license holder should always study on his own the legal aspects beyond what's taught in the typical CCW class.

    When you are in fear for your life or are in danger of great bodily harm. If there is no weapon and it's two of you against one, and you are bigger then the attacker, courts won't see it as you would be in great bodily harm either.

    Doesn't matter what they taught you in the course what matters is what the law states.
    Check your state law and see what it says about brandishing. Most states have no brandishing laws and if your state law says you can't brandish, well then you can't pull your weapon to defuse a situation like this one.
    I'm not a lawyer so take it for what it's worth. For legal advice ask a lawyer.

    What pafinder said.

    Further research shows Ohio doesn't have a brandishing law. However you can be charged after a situation where you create the threat of deadly force when deadly force isn't justified. It appears that's where you went wrong. The guy was unarmed and presented little threat. Put simply you can't go around pulling a gun on someone just because they're intimidating you.

    The instructor who taught my last couple ccw classes gave us his buisness card and told us he will always be available to us as an expert witness should the need ever arise. If you acted as you were trained i would be looking for that instructor to testify in your defence

    Deadly force is not brandishing your weapon, deadly force is pulling the trigger... That is what I was instructed in my ccw class

  11. So let me get this straight. You just claimed to have fought off 4 people, have martial arts training AND had a friend or friends with you, yet you still pulled a gun? Error number 1. Error number 2 is that you let him call the cops. Sorry I don't believe a ccw gives you a get out of every argument card
