mynameist: Nice, because upping the ante to violence is always amusing.


seriously? some guy comes at a woman while jerking off and says,"hey, watch me jack off", and you're NOT okay with her pulling a gun on him?

seriously?

wow. enjoy being a victim.

"Watch me masturbate!" *BANG* Yeah, that's a proportional response. Pointing and laughing would have failed because????


She didnt shoot him. So yes, proportional response. I doubt the woman found the situation funny.

because rape.

you know, that thing you're supposed to lie down and take (and bear children from, if capable) if it happens to you according to the same folks.


Seriously?

FTFA: "... a man approached her aggressively while masturbating and suggested she should watch him." is rape?

And I suppose a hug is intercourse.

I mean, he totally pulled a gun on her. Right?

The use of deadly force (or credible threat thereof) is only justifiable if there is an imminent threat of death or grievous bodily harm.

Doesn't seem to be the case here.

jbuist: Most handguns don't have manual safeties. Not sure why everybody seems to think they do.


The Ruger .380 does not have a safety. Loading the magazine and releasing the slide chambers a round. She did exactly that; She was ready to fire, but didn't. Not sure why the safety matters. If you don't think you may have to shoot, don't chamber a round. She felt there was a possibility that she may have to shoot, so she did. How is this a problem?

demaL-demaL-yeH: Seriously?

Potentially, yes, according to folks here. It was the natural, logical progression of flashing and jerking off in front of people.

Apparently these people are very leery of nude beaches as well.


...and art galleries. Where the majority of exposed penises likely belong to the baby Jesus.

Because that would have enraged the pervert and he would have punted the dog, stomped the kid, crushed the womans face with his fist, torn her clothes off and raped her.

The dude is jacking off in a park. Do you expect 'shame' to make him turn and run?

/I'll stop feeding the trolls. sorry.

So a girl shouldn't feel threatened with grievous bodily harm if she is walking alone and stranger aggressively approaches her while masturbating? That seems to be a pretty text book example of reasonable fear for ones safety? Seems the police agree since she isn't being charged with brandishing or any other crime.

Well, it was a chick. It's not like any response is going to be reasonable.

So, your compliant is cavewomen with rocks. Defense guns are for threat to life only. Which this isn't, and why your complaint doesn't have anything to do with using a gun to defend against a threat to life.

But, I should say, I'll give granny the benefit of the doubt over the weiner waggler. If she perceived it as a threat, she's arguably justified.

As a CHP holder myself, I fully support the right of people to defend themselves. I have to counterbalance that against people who give responsible armed citizens a bad name.

I can't get over how all of you Farkers think flashers and rapists are the same thing or are even remotely connected. If she wanted to protect herself against rape, she would have been better off pointing that thing at any random guy walking close to her.

Probably because the omission of a manual safety is a pretty recent trend in (semi-auto) handgun design. 3 of the 4 handguns I own have manual safeties; the only one that doesn't is my revolver.

No, I was not there. On the other hand, none of the articles that I read about this incident stated whether or not she actually pointed the gun at him. That would be the line between credible and not credible threat of use of deadly force. There is a huge difference between pointing at him and not. As far as I know, none of us know. Also, none of us know what the guy was or was not thinking. I conjecture that she, too, had no idea what he was thinking. Perhaps that entered into her thought process, but we will probably never know.

Same here. My friend owns one semiauto handgun without a manual safety. But I cant shoot it because the amount of pressure it takes to squeeze the trigger would require me to use two fingers.
 
2012-11-16 10:19:43 AM  

mynameist: Just to clear things up. There is a huge gap between flashing and rape. Has there even been a case where someone was flashed and then raped moments later? There may be absolutely no connection at all.
There is not a huge gap between pulling a gun on someone and shooting them. Most defense classes will teach you never to pull one out unless you plan on firing it.


Yes.

I seem to recall reading a book about serial killers/rapists, in which many of them started off as flashers. It was their first way of exerting control, "forcing" the woman to look at them.


Also, you're misinterpreting the lesson those defense classes were teaching. It doesn't mean that every time you pull a weapon, you should be planning to fire it - it means that every time you pull a weapon, you should be prepared to fire it. A weapon can be used to disarm a situation without actually being fired. Heck, in BMT's entry controller training, we were taught to not even charge the weapon unless the situation had already started to escalate (the suspect has a weapon/proceeds after a stop command/is approaching too quickly). In any other situation, the mere act of pointing the weapon was the first step - without a bullet in the chamber.

In this case, the man presented a threatening situation. She pulled the weapon, intent to fire it if he escalated the situation by attacking her. The situation didn't escalate past that point, so she had no need to fire the weapon.

Not every person is the same. While one person might have flashed a gun, another might've come out with something like "Seems like you're proud of your shortcomings..." and kept walking.

2012-11-16 10:22:22 AM  
patting someone on the back when it's not wanted is illegal assault. since physical contact is involved, it's far more threatening than "eek! a penis!". so is it ok to pull a gun on someone who pats me on the back? bumping into someone's arm while walking in a crowded area is also illegal assault - where are all the farkers calling for mass gun-waving in crowds? there are places where it's illegal to show a boob - will anyone defend the man who points a gun at a woman because he can see her boob? driving recklessly - should anyone who cuts someone off in traffic have the offended party threaten their life for it?. what about speeders who tailgate you because you're driving slow in the fast lane? do you let them pass while holding a gun at them when they do? some people are offended by marijuana use - why aren't more people waving guns at people who smoke a joint while walking down the street?

y'all be all wack.

I wasn't being critical of her choice, just pointing out most handguns don't have manual safeties.

But she should have chambered a round before she left the house. Just silly carrying around a half loaded gun.

According to forensic psychological research, Class III Exhibitionists are likely to progress to more severe forms of sexual assault, including child molestation. But it's better to roll the dice on that while out with your kid instead of carrying a scary object, right?

He flashed his weapon, she flashed hers, nobody got shot, nobody got raped. Quit yer bellyaching.

Plus, it's illegal for someone with a CHL to brandish their weapon for the sole purpose of intimidation. It was probably easy for the woman in question to justify her actions to the police, but others should exercise caution if they plan to follow her example in similar situations. Even if you don't point the muzzle at someone, it is illegal to brandish a legally-owned-and-carried firearm to intimidate someone, even if "they started it." Obviously if you draw it with intent to shoot them and they get intimidated by that, you're A-OK.

I know. It happens when you swap gunmetal for grey matter.

Headso: so what are your ideas


Here's a novel one. I had to use a time machine to come up with this one because it required months of rigorous thought and intense debates with my peers- who are all by the way, absolute experts in the field of ensuring-theirs-and their-child's-safety-from-a-sex-offender-in-the-process-of-victimizing -them-ology:

Walk the other way. Notify the authorities.

Yes, I know, this raises the question of whether or not- in the inter meaning time it would take for the police to be notified- that the police department could have lost the chance to apprehend this dangerous individual before another's virgin eyes are besmirched by the sight of an exposed penis, and in action no less.

But since Grandma failed to hold this most heinous meat-and-potatoes-dangler at bay herself with her fearsome armament while the authorities arrived, well, it's not like your favorite option accomplished this noble goal either.

A. It shall be unlawful for any person to point, hold or brandish any fire armor any air or gas operated weapon or any object similar in appearance,whether capable of being fired or not, in such manner as to reasonably induce fear in the mind of another or hold a firearm or any air or gas operated weapon in a public place in such a manner as to reasonably induce fear in the mind of another of being shot or injured. However, this section shall not apply to any person engaged in excusable or justifiable self-defense.

Just about every brandishing law has that clause. If there's a valid reason to feel threatened, you can draw your weapon, even if you don't fire it.

This varies by state. There is no brandishing law in my state. The tools used to threaten aren't mentioned, there's one blanket threatening law and a couple minor ones.

Generally, the person who would receive the brandishing requirement is a thug of some type who won't call police. So it's not as much of a big deal as you are asserting.

Just don't get wrapped up in the monkey dance for other reasons and end up doing it.

Sure, but if you shoot someone there's probably still going to be court hearings while you clear yourself, and therapy, and therapy for your kid. What a drag. A naked guy with running around with capsaicin covered nuts until the cops show up and taze him? That's a story you can tell your grandkids.
