If someone approaches me and asks me "what I'm doing around here", unless they're in full uniform and driving a marked police cruiser, I'm just going to draw and shoot.And you'll go to prison, congrats.I'm being facetious. Possibly engaging in sophistry. But I'm raising an example that *will* be prologue for events in the near future.Really, the concept of what constitutes an assault capable of causing great bodily harm/injury and what doesn't is so easy even a liberal should be able to figure it out, but you guys can't so here's a primer:Following someone = not an assault = no right to self-defenseAsking someone what they're doing there = not an assault = no right to self-defensePunching someone in the face = assault = right to self-defenseRest assured that there are many, many people who are not going to make that distinction in the heat of the moment. They're going to get frightened by some dude who may be approaching them to ask directions, or may just happen to be walking in the same direction. And if they're one of those nervous nellies who bought a piece for personal protection, they're going to react exactly as I described. Out of raw, irrational fear.This is your world, Col. You've been a staunch advocate for this as long as I've known you on these boards. Enjoy, you win.
