What an idiot, tells the guy to get out of his car and then pulls a gun on him claiming self defense/stand your ground. Oh well, he'll have some alone time to think about the error of his ways.

With his good looks, he should have no problems finding someone to cuddle up with and tell his story to in jail......

Maybe it's just me but were to have an incident which required me to pull my gun and point it at someone pnce the threat was resolved I probably would go ahead and contact the police. Or maybe beat a hasty retreat and then contact the police. But maybe that's just me.

Of course I would also guess that attempting to enforce traffic laws would be appreciably more difficult without a citation book, too. But again, maybe that's just me.

The problem is Florida's application for a concealed weapons permit. It doesn't ask "Are you an idiot?" I'm sure that guy would have answered "yes" and then he wouldn't have a permit.

You just know people would lie on that one, perception is reality.

Just another sheepdog among the sheeple. Always misunderstood. People should feel at ease when they see a gun.

I'm sure the McDonald's video camera footage is of above average quality. I wonder if it will be made public?

In Memphis, there's probably a good chance that his "self defense" actions of pulling a gun on someone would have gotten misinterpreted and he'd be looking good in a box instead of looking like a ******nozzle on the news...
