  •  Marissa's problem was the warning shot. (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    In a nutshell:

    To fire is to take an action that includes lethal force.
    To act with lethal force requires a fear for your own health / safety.

    A "warning shot" is when you act with lethal force WITHOUT the required fear for your own immediate health / safety.

    Warning shots are illegal for good reason, whether the person letting loose is marissa or jill biden. Cops don't give warning shots because of where those bullets are actually going to hit, and they have immunity while they are in the line of duty!

    If the cops don't do it even when they know they can't get charged for the action, then it's a really bad idea for a non-cop person to do a warning shot.

    Or, as some people are now calling them "Biden shots".

    It's safe to trust a sane person with the keys to nuclear weapons, but it's not safe to trust an insane person with the cleaners under the kitchen sink. The answer is not more gun control, it's people care.
