    So If you were the guy in the car and this guy just hits you with a straight jab is that worthy of pulling a gun on this guy in fear of your life?

    by the letter of the law even a bystander would've been able to make a legal shoot on the guy that was stomping the poor guy out

    I would have moved my car regardless. It's not about standing your ground if you end up not being able to stand anymore. He had ample time to get out of there without it going in a direction not desirable. If he would have pulled a gun then the attacker could possibly have grabbed it considering he was in the car punching him at points.

    I'm sure there is another gas station in a couple miles without a pack of trouble causers outside. When I started carrying a firearm my attitude towards strange situations changed. I avoid situations where something could happen.

    State laws very greatly. For example in MN what you just said could almost certainly end you up in prison for 2nd degree murder, of if you plead out, a lesser manslaughter charge.

    You basically can only protect yourself, loved ones, family, and friends. You can't play police for strangers although there isn't court cases testing this out... and I won't be the guinea pig.

    And here you can only defend yourself if you are in harm of greater bodily harm or death.

    Would you draw and if he came at you shot, or after you got punched once draw then shoot?

    Me personally would never park in a 7/11 with that many thug looking people standing around.

    Priority one should have been getting the fuck out of dodge.

    Even if you had a gun, and were able to get to it while getting punched in the face, you would still likely lose that fight and likely your life. You are stuck in a car, with 15-20 people surrounding you.

    What do you think the chances are that someone else there was carrying?

    True, i would try to reverse outta there as soon as possible.

    But then, is it better to be investigated for vehicular manslaughter, or for shooting in self defense? Because if I find myself trapped in a scene from Gorillas in the Mist, i'm driving off, even if I have Curious George hanging from my bumper.

    Agreed, when 13% of the population is black and they account for 54% of the homicide rate, there is no reasoning with these animals.

    This. If I couldn't avoid the situation, then :


    This.

    In Ohio we can use lethal force to protect ourselves from "serious bodily harm". We can also use lethal force to protect others if the other person would be able to use lethal force to protect him/herself.

    I agree, I wouldn't have gone into that parking lot in the first place. There's other convenience stores down the block I'm sure.

    But, if a shooting had occurred in that situation I think the video would be pretty detrimental to your court case. Even though it was offerred in a very aggressive manner, the driver of the car was given the opportunity to leave on at least a few occasions and decided to stay there. Most state laws imply that if you have a way to retreat, then you can not use lethal force. Some states (like Texas) that have Castle Doctrine laws state that you no longer have the duty to retreat and can defend yourself even if you have a way out. I wouldn't want to be the test case though.

    is this what WMD has turned into?

    blatant racism.

    how about blaming the person, rather than their race :ugh: :ugh:

    It's a culture thing, blacks are six times more likely to commit murder for example. Or at least be charged with it.
