A GREAT MANY THANKS TO A FEW KANSAS CITY GUN EXPERTS WARNING CCW ENTHUSIASTS ABOUT THE DANGER OF FLASHING A GUN DURING A SHOUTING MATCH!!!
Missouri CCW enjoy a great deal of freedom but that comes with more responsibility.
Here's the word:
"TKC, just wanted to inform your blog that the guy in the Twitter video pulling a gun is in for a world of trouble. You should know that I'm CWW and a staunch supporter of the 2nd Ammendment but what we saw from that video is simply a dangerous and possibly illegal display. Let me quote one of my favorite websites that explains this much better than I can. Here it is: "Once you pull your gun, you have—in effect—threatened to use deadly force. If you are not facing a deadly threat, you are committing a crime."
"I teach a CCW class in KCMO and here is the passage of the newly revised gun law that I make my students aware of: Weapons offenses - Missouri Revised Statutes Section 571.030.1 Article 4 states that it's unlawful if a gun owner "Exhibits, in the presence of one or more persons, any weapon readily capable of lethal use in an angry or threatening manner" What this means is simple: Flashing a gun is not an acceptable deterrent to a threat. You only produce your weapon if you are going to fire it.
"I'm not taking sides in this argument, I'm just showing you what the law says and what most CCW instructors tell their students. For the sake of everyone involved, I'm glad no one was hurt and I would advise everyone to get their training before carrying a gun even if it is no longer required by Missouri."
Like it or not, this TKC reader makes a crystal clear argument backed up by Missouri law and gun owner resources as this altercation offers a preview of more gun fighting in the future.
