    Hmm, let me mull that one over - I have been known to fondle a gun or two, but my relationship with my TV is strictly platonic

    Yes, exactly. That's why it might be good to shoot. It is not your problem that they have put you in a position of having to guess their mind.

    That said, I would only shoot if I felt they were about to harm me.

    Funny, guys chimed in to give councel to the thread's original question even after rather extensive words on the subject from GABE SAUREZ were provided. ...Amazing.

    I've thought about these types of scenarios, and what the ramifications could be if I got involved. I think in the majority of cases it would be a lose/lose, even IF you came out on top against "the enemy". I don't think I would get involved in anything short of someone popping off rounds in a public place, shooting people at random. Even in that case, if there was an off-duty LEO in the crowd (or for that matter another CCW guy/gal), if you pull out your piece you might be mistaken for another bad guy (accomplice) and get shot by the good guy. Yikes!

  7. Knowing all the facts is key for me too. Despite the "Profiling" some resort to, that means nothing to me. Just because two thugs are beating up a LEO does not necessarly mean the Leo is a victim. What if he has been a crooked cop and finally gets what's been coming to him? Yeah I don't assume every cop is evil, but I sure know they all are not on the side of good.
    Aside from that, in NY I couldn't just go into a situation and expect that no legal issues will come of it. Even if its a Felony Level Situation (robbery, rap, murder, arson, or kidnaping) I better make 100% sure I'm understanding it clear. B.c what happens if I defend the perso

  8. Sorry hit the submit early.

    What happens if I defend that person and they say..."oh I don't want to press charges on my attacker" now I'm screwed

    Saw you walking out on Sentimental Street
    What cha going out there
    Who ya trying to be
    I know what you're thinking
    Cause I've been there myself
    I've been kicked so many times
    I don't know nothing else
    Still I noticed your urgency
    I recognized the flair
    That ya got from chasing
    All those East coast dares
    I've seen it before
    It happens time and again
    All cut up inside
    Yet you're caught in a spin

    Out on Sentimental Street in the avenues
    Take a good hard look
    There ain't nothing ever new
    Out on Sentimental Street in the avenues
    Will you ever find out
    Guess I'll leave it up to you

    Saw you dancing out at Madame Wong's Two
    You did those same two steps
    That I taught you back in June
    Heard you dined last night
    At Conte Razor's Caf
    Did you get your fill
    Did you think you had to pay
    Still I noticed your urgency
    And recognized the pain
    And I'm sure it's the same
    You feel again and again
    And I wish I could get us
    That second chance
    But you're having too much fun
    With your sudden romance

    Out on Sentimental Street in the avenues
    Take a good hard look
    There ain't nothing ever new
    Out on Sentimental Street in the avenues
    Will you ever find us
    Guess I'll leave it up to you

  10. Good read thanks
