"I almost got to" .....AresXD40 said:I almost got to the other night. Pretty interesting actually.
I don't think he'll be coming back. If he does he has some choices to make. Go to jail, or if he assaults me, well you all know the option for that.
OK, relieved to hear that. I thought (just like DBake did) that you sounded a little too enthusiastic.AresXD40 said:Didn't really think about the wording. ......
I didn't mean to come off and as some gun toting, wanting to kill, shoot, murder someone etc.
LOL. Had me there for a sec.03RangerXLT said:I had to once when I was patroling the mall. It wasn't pretty. I didn't have a chance to put my ninja skills to the test, I just reacted. 32 shots in 2 seconds. Its not something I like to talk about though.
Haven't got to the rest of the posts below this one so perhaps someone already covered this but perhaps he meant, "Almost, HAD to..." I could see how this mistake could be made. Just food for thought.AresXD40 said:Almost got to is accurate. Who knows if the guy was there to rob the house, or if he was just passing through backyards. If he was a thief and had got inside and was armed who knows what would or could have happened. That was my reasoning for the choice of words.
Massad Ayoob says it is most likely to be $100,00 per lawsuit, criminal and civil. You are also more likely to lose civil suit as the burden of proof is not as high as it is in criminal court. Remember OJ? He won the criminal case and lost the civil suit. Not the best example but is there.hobocircus said:I think it was my first CCW instructor that told me that even a justified use of your weapon in self defense will still cost you $25,000+ in legal costs.
Once again, some of you are going in the direction of trouble. Put distance between you and what you are faced with. Call the police and let them handle it. Sure, protect yourself, but don't go looking for a chance to get into a situation.
Being armed and then going to someones backyard or house to make sure someone doesn't steal a garden hose or a Wal-Mart television set? Homie don't play that! :roll:
