Wasn't my point at all.... the twitter dude, claims to be a retired cop, yet he used NONE of the training he should have had to be a cop. You don't go from ignoring two guys to brandishing your weapon. He did NONE of the intermediate steps in force application. Apparently for him it is ignore the 'threat' to shoot the threat, no middle ground.
And what was the threat? Did the two attack them? Did the two touch them? Did the two even verbally degrade them?
Thinking if the retired 'cop' is that fearful of so mild a meeting he had no business carrying anyway.
While on the subject, there are a multitude of lesser defense weapons/systems available, he didn't think about that, only his whine over not being allowed to conceal carry in a different country.
If I was a cynical man I'd say this was total hogwash pandering to the 'gun' totting right wing.
Cops, real cops, know many more ways to deal with a threat other than shoot it.
