Panel Says Pull Your Gun If You Feel Endangered

The 5-4 vote came despite questions by several legislators as to whether that language would provide a legal defense for gang members caught waving their weapons, as they could say they were in fear a rival gang had threatened them.

It didn't used to be illegal to carry a firearm in plain site. Thats why the need came about for CCW. When that became the case many states outlawed any open display of a gun.In many states you still can carry a gun in plain view as long as there is nothing threatening about it. I think what these bozo's are trying to do is make it ok if you also threatening. Thats going to get somebody shot sure as shootin. Of course maybe we could get back to the era of the gunfight at high-noon, the OK Corral etc. Heck free entertainment at its worst.

it didn't used to be

Thanks Mark and noted. I am kind of mixed on this. I am a big believer in the right to bear arms BUT responsibly. Here we can not carry a concealed weapon but they can be out in the open. There will always be responsible people and others that abuse weapons. My Dad never had a loaded weapon in the house and the guns were put up. He taught us to use them properly. We took hunter's safety at 12 years old and they showed some graphic pictures of people who were shot. This sticks in your mind also. I think this is also a matter of parents/guardians teaching their kids properly. If they took away all our guns, the criminals would always have them. Black market guns are big business and at least here if you are of age and buy one through stores, a background check is done and it weeds some of the danger out anyway.
