    Apparently, he failed the NRA gun safety course. "Never point a gun unless you intend to use it" is a motto I often hear from the pro-gun crowd.
    Well, that happened like back in 1980, and I'm not sure they had safety classes back then. Alaska is a very different place, you could open carry just about anywhere back then.

    Sadly, the military member did not make it.

    You knew what I was alluding to though, you don't point a firearm downrange where people are gathered. In a gun safety class I was administered in Illinois back in 1982, the instructor stated you should never point a weapon at anyone, loaded or not loaded.

    There is no question what Eric was doing on that bridge and who he was aiming at.
    he didn't drive all the way from Idaho just to shoot jack rabbits.

    Ya, I was referring to the sniper on the bridge. Obviously he didn't seem too concerned about pointing his weapon at the crowd below.

    Gotta wonder what the mentality or mindset is with someone like that.

    Possibly, but good luck proving that in court.

    The ranch itself doesn't need to. All the ranch needs to be is an asset owned by the person who owes money. They could also put liens on all his vehicles, land he may own in other states, etc.

    A photo of him aiming at something doesn't prove what he was aiming at. You would basically need a photo from a gun-cam, if he was using one, showing the sights on a person, or a recorded statement of some kind from the rifleman himself admitting that he was aiming at a person.

    Remember, you can't get a conviction on common sense, you have to prove it.

    If you're going to try and prove something in court, it matters. I'll bet that SWAT team had a round chambered in their guns.

    It proves a lot more than it doesn't.

    Right, and that's not 'armed resistance'. You have to actually use the arms for that term to apply.
