Thank goodness that they blurred the face of the aggressor while leaving the victims' face and the cookie factory owner's face for everyone to see.

Flashing a concealed weapon is still a no-no, yeah?

It's stupid as hell. Gives the other guy time to rush you and take you to the ground before you can draw. Whatever permit this dumbf*ck has should be revoked for sheer incompetence.

It was effective and a limited response.  I know most on the gun side of things think all such situations should be dealt with a barrage of tightly grouped rounds, center mass, but come on.

The 'victim' was definitely saying something to the guy before the shove. He also kept walking in the general direction of the guy with his hands on his hips, getting closer. Not the best way to avoid a confrontation.

Either way, cookie dude did good. Also, I'm hungry again.

Antifa punk backed down from harassing a person when he was shown a gun. Well done.

I've been there, and I've taken my kids and other friends' kids there. It's a sweet little place and the giant waffle iron style machine that bakes the cookies is really fascinating. Fresh fortune cookies are incredibly delicious and steps above the stale cookies passed out at restaurants. It doesn't seem right thinking about this happy crowded place could also harbor dangerous altercations

Is that the new right wing narrative?  That any criminal or dirtbag is Antifa?

Still stupid to think being anti-fascists is a bad thing.  Unless you're a butthurt fascist.

Counting on good fortune in situations involving a firearm is stupid. Period. If you're in a situation where the firearm comes into play, then you draw. "Flashing" the weapon to discourage the other person is just flat out incompetent. It's on the same level of idiocy as trying to shoot the other person in the leg to avoid killing them.

Sorry, but this is just the way that it works. If you don't like it, or are squeamish, then don't carry a gun. This idiot was lucky that the other guy didn't have a gun of his own, otherwise he'd be lying in the street bleeding out, with his firearm still in its holster.

Awesome that they doxxed him

/ rhymes?
// not awesome to doxx him
/// fortune cookies are no longer fortunes. they're usually lame attempts at wisdom or insight. I care more about this that the story, if anyone has details please do tell. I'm about to go ask the guy in the story, I know right where he is.

It probably seems frightening to people in other countries, but it's nowhere near as bad as the media makes it out to be. I sometimes go months without ever having to go for my pistol. Usually it just sits in the glove compartment except for maybe when I'm cleaning it when stopped at traffic lights.

Being anti-fascist does sound good, doesn't it? Until you find out that they mean by fascist is anybody who doesn't share their political viewpoint.

Not as strange as he is making it.  99% of the populace, unless very drunk, would back down from someone showing a gun.  No one wants that sort of escalation.

The 1% are people who don't treat guns with respect: gang members for example - people who carry guns because they're regularly doing stupid things amongst other people doing stupid things.

Someone flashes a gun like that, you put your hands up and walk away saying things like "It's cool" and "I'm going".  The fact it's still in the holster means he's not a nutcase escalating the situation.  He's showing you this is where it ends.

If you flash a concealed weapon at someone and intimidate them, yes, technically that's "brandishing" in a lot of jurisdictions.

However, given the context, even a braindead lawyer could argue that he wasn't brandishing. He was clearing his draw in case he had to draw on this guy. You'll note he just moved his shirt out of the way. And then you play the video for the jury and they acquit. Which is why even the most bloody-minded prosecutor wouldn't even try to prosecute this.

Yeah, if you want to bet your life on that 99% "statistic" you just pulled out your own ass, be my guest, lol.... just don't be part of that 1%...

The people who are actually knowledgeable about these things, for example concealed carry instructors, don't agree with you. But then again, they have actual training and experience, rather than getting their "facts" from reruns of The Wire... :-)
