    It seems there are many local people who agree with firing warning shots into the air with no regard for human safety.

    no warning shot from me... if i think its came down to me pulling my wep, then someones going to the hospital or freezer box. Now the question is 2 people attacking a single person considered a life and death situation?

    Well imho it does. I've seen people beat almost to death by kicking and punching, why in the #$%@#$%@#$%@ does everything have to have a grey area? Why does the laws leave this huge gap in terms of reasons to pull your gun and use it,lol. Then again the saying: I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6 comes to play.

    There are those who get involved, there are those who choose not to. If you choose to get involved, you have to quickly assert that a forcible felony is occurring, and you should be able to articulate how you feared for the person's life. This is how I see it, anyway. I hope I can make these distinctions quick enough should I be in a position to get involved.

    Me: They were punching and kicking her and yelling "you gonna die motherf*****!" I feared for her life.
    Investigator: We'll call you if we need you.

    I doubt that aggravated assault charge is going anywhere.
