    Was I wrong

    I have a NC ccw permit. My best friends brother stole a very expensive ring and sold it to a known druggie. The guy wonted $60 dollars for it and my friend was going to go and ask for it back and pay him the $40 dollars that his brother sold it for. He lived in a bad trailer park so my friend asked me to go. Of course I always carry. My friend went to the door and I stayed on the gravel road in front of the trailer. He asked the guy if he had the ring the guy was drunk and said he had nothing for sale so my friend said he would just call the law because he knew he had it and wonted it back. As my friend was leaving the yard to call the law the guy looked at me and said hey fat boy what the ____ are you looking at I didn't say anything. I turned to walk to the car and the guy came off his porch pulled out a knife said he was going to cut me I still said nothing but pulled my shirt up as he got closer to be ready to pull my weapon. He backed off when he saw my gun, we called the law. The Sherriff would not even listen to us they were very harsh and said we were wrong. They took my weapon. They gave it back before they left with a lot of ragging that we were wrong. They made the druggie give the ring back for $40. They said I could be charged with terrorizing the public. Say if I had no weapon this guy was coming at me with a knife showing my weapon stopped the attack I think it would have been worse if I hadn't. Maybe we should have just called the sheriff to begin with but I still don't think we were wrong.

    You were wrong. Your friend should have called the cops in the first place.

    No disrespect but you put yourself in that position. He wouldn't have come at you if you weren't in front of his house. To the police you were looking for trouble. I know how the friend thing works but you can't put yourself in those positions with a CHL. Besides going to known drug dealers house in a bad trailer park. Might thank The Lord he didn't shoot you. Just my opinion

    Wrong for going there, yes. Being ready with your gun was right. I just can't see agreeing to go where something bad is likely to happen when the cops can be called ahead of time.

    Keep in mind... bad area. Cops will assume everyone who wants to go there is bad, so they're likely to give anyone there a hard time just to be on the safe side.

  6. no, IMO you did nothing wrong. you were just there minding your business and watching a friend's back. he gave the guy a chance to give the ring back before the law got involved. you had every right to be there, and you did nothing wrong by showing the guy you were armed. i hope you were prepared to use lethal force to protect your self.

    the deputies had no business disarming you either since you broke no laws. you can handle their preaching two ways. ignore them and go about your business or tell them to pound sand.

    What exactly did I do wrong stand on a public access road which is my right and watch a discussion. There was other people standing around he didn't even know I was with my friend. He came at me for no reason. I walk down my neighborhood every day and if I look at someone standing in their yard and they don't like it, do they have the right to come at me with a knife. Maybe your right about my friend should have called the law but me standing on a public street gives no one the right to pull a weapon because someone looks their way and they don't like it. And to the guy that said (He wouldn't have come at you if you weren't in front of his house) So lets no one walk down the street because we might stop in front of someone's house and they might not like it. Yall have a right to your opinion that's why I posted because I would like to hear it, but instead of just saying you were wrong think about a reason and post that response. Your were wrong is good if you can tell someone why.

    You were about ready to accomplice buying stolen merchandise while being armed. You can twist it and turn it anyway you want, but your friend AND you went to a known drug dealers house to purchase a known stolen ring. At what point do you get a clue and say to yourself, "You know, this doesn't seem like the smartest thing to do."

    You are very fortunate the police didn't arrest you and your friend for trying to buy known stolen merchandise. If you knew this guy had the ring and it was stolen, then why not call the cops and have it retrieved? That's how I would've backed up my friend. I would not have played the muscle side kick with him.

    Now you make some lame excuse... "I was just standing on the road watching a discussion" Really? That's your defense for acting stupidly?

    The title of your post is "Was I wrong", you've heard our answers, yet won't take ownership for what you did that was wrong. If that's the case, no one will be able to convince you of it.
