depends on where i am. in chitcago sorry you votes your vote and and you gets your ass beat. couple weeks ago i was in chitcago way downtown waiting on a client watched two cars get stolen and several drug deals go down. im not even bothering calling the cops there. its the kind of place the people of that city want let em fester in it.

in wisconsin the goblin is getting drawn down on no questions asked. if aggression continues then he is getting shot.

as for the tv show its all staged. the supposed what would you do innocent bystanders are also part of the gig. its called made for tv.

If my state law forbid me from protecting a stranger I will be darned if I am going to miss watching my granddaughter grow up just so I could serve life in prison for helping a stranger. I'll make a call, but armed intervention is not likely unless they turn on me.

I only carry where it is legal for me to carry, not into every God forsaken armpit of our nation.

There are so many things that could complicate such a situation, it is impossible to say what is the right thing to do. Dialing 911 is almost always the first right thing to do. Warning shots are almost always the wrong thing to do. The gun should never appear unless you are quite prepared to kill someone with that first shot.

Usually the less force that is used, the better the outcome and the more force that is used, the more complicated the results are. (ask Zimmerman)

Your best bet is to know you laws, know yourself and know your weapon. Then you do the best you can with the knowledge at hand and pray that you make the right call.

I am at the age I don't duke it out anymore. To old to run fast, so somebody is gonna get shot, because I can still draw fast and hit my target!

I would rather be judged by 12, than carried by six!!

CC has a big responsibility tagged to it. Quick decision and choice.

I saw the episode the op is talking about. I posted about it when I saw it. It was quite a while back...maybe 2 years ago. I was upset about the show. I was seriously concerned that I or someone like me could have shot one of the actors. There is no way I would watch someone hit a homeless person with a bat and not do something. I would immediately draw my weapon. No doubt about it. If they came at me with the bat...BANG!..BANG!...BANG! I am not going to wait until someone has already hit me with a bat to shoot them. I have been attacked with a bat. After the first hit you are in no condition to defend yourself.

Call 911 AFTER you have stopped the beating.

One experiment was with a rubber fake bat as a weapon and the other they were unarmedNone of the bystanders had firearms but say if you did and you legally own and carry one what would you do? Would you mind your buisness and let someone else handle the situation? Would you intervene? Would you unholster your weapon and ask them to walk away then call the police? Would you be mr hero and point your gun at them and attempt to aresst then? Would you just keep walking and ignore it and pretend you didnt see it? Please tell me what you would do if this situation ever happens atleast we would know what the majority of us that carry firearms would do share what you would do and why please
Should've, would've, could've, it's all hearsay! Take my answer with a grain of salt because none of us know for sure what we'd do until we're in the situation personally. What I THINK I'd do is call the cops then try to break up the situation with OTHER bystanders, no weapons if possible. If no one is around I'd still call the cops but id also pull out my firearm if someone is being beat to death, 10 years ago id fight him off with no firearm but I'm physically disabled today so id probably get beat to death also, Id yell stop or ill shoot or something to that effect and/or take every step the 911 operator tells me to take. That's just me! The only way I'd 100% shoot is if he's coming at me or ClEARLY in the process of killing someone. Again, take that with a grain of salt.
