    This doesn't feel good... shoot first, ask questions later? Really? Death penalty by private lone judge, jury, and executioner for what may be just abject stupidity and terrible judgement? Caught physically harming someone, or lethal force used to save an innocent life...absolutely. I've carried for 25 years. No issues at all there. The direction this thread has taken is why so many people take such a dim view of us "gun nuts." This is one of the few times I don't blame them.

    That is an assumption.

    It doesn't have to be a call to get him fired. There might be a reasonable explanation. I dunno what that would be though.

    I’m fairly certain the “shoot first” comments above are tongue-in-cheek. Get your panties out of a wad, no one is truly suggesting lethal force in this particular instance.

    We haven't seen the video, and it depends on what's on it. It crossed a line for 6pc or he wouldn't have done what he did, I imagine. I don't need to see the video, I believe 6pc when he says it was inappropriate, even if nothing illegal occurred.

    As a father, if I have video evidence of a person and it is CLEAR that that person is a predator, I'll hurt them. Not necessarily with a gun. What can I say, in my younger days I've done worse in reaction to less.

    This is one of those things that you never know how you will react until you're in that situation. I will not let predators get away with their deeds against my family.

    :yeahthat:

    It was mostly intended as a satire of the way threads usually drift on PoA, and I'm sure that our resident master of satire, @SixPapaCharlie , took it as such.

    F no, you did the right thing, there is no cute in a stranger offering girls money, nor is it funny. Screw that guy, he deserves what's coming to him. (not being shot, but the cops finding him.)

    I absolutely agree that 6PC should have reported that to the cops. It's worth having them take a second look taken at the perp. That is not something I would post on social media however, at least under normal circumstances. I wasn't in 6PC's shoes however so I can't really judge.
