    PaintBall Gun Deadly Weapon

    LINK

    Found this interesting and surprising.

    Surprised, in that Indiana, where so many carry that someone would attempt this; quite risky IMO.


    From Indiana code:

    (1) is justified in using deadly force;  and

    (2) does not have a duty to retreat;

    if the person reasonably believes that that force is necessary to prevent serious bodily injury to the person or a third person or the commission of a forcible felony.  No person in this state shall be placed in legal jeopardy of any kind whatsoever for protecting the person or a third person by reasonable means necessary.
    This punk was fortunate it was not someone else he peppered with paint balls.

    On the instant of being threatened with being fired upon and seeing a gun raised in one's direction, I would suppose that nearly anyone would assume it's exactly what it looks to be: a manifest deadly assault with apparent intent to murder the person.

    Definitely lucky. He's going to try that game with the "wrong" (right-minded and fully-prepared) person, at some point. I doubt he'll be laughing then.

    Hopefully, someone who cares about his sorry butt will smack some sense into his head, before someone else is injured by his wanton disregard ... and before he's put down for good.

    Agreed, and it is highly dependent where one lives, liberal anti gun states vs. carry friendly states.

    Yep, the word “reasonable” seems to cover much definitional ground.
