    Open carry question [W:46]

    If a dude walks into a store with an assault rifle with no intention to commit a crime and the store owner shoots him is that justifiable homicide?

    Not in my state. I discussed this with a lawyer online. He convinced me a store owner could not shoot a gun carrier for doing nothing more than carrying a gun into a store.

    So the owner has to wait until the dude shoots him effectively not being able to defend himself?

    If I'm in a parking lot and someone is driving a car there, can I shoot in self defense? After all, they might try to run me over.

    There's no more reason to believe an open carry is about to attack you than a person driving a car nearby.

    I don't think so. I think the owner just has to have a reason to believe he's in danger. That takes more than just seeing the gun.

    the store owner has to read the person..... a person with no intent to commit a crime will not show himself to be a threat.

    simply open-carrying a gun does not equate to a threat.
