Does anyone know if this has been recently passed? This excerpt was taken from the Urban Survival website today: Finally, a new law allows for a concealed carry permit holder to display their weapon to de-escalate what would otherwise be a violent altercation. It has been designed to stop problems in the past where the passive display of a firearm was considered brandishing and not a means of self defense. It will prevent law abiding citizens from violating the law when lethal force is not required to prevent a violent incident. It is important to note that this law does not allow for you to remove your handgun from its holster to intimidate another individual or gain leverage on a situation. Thank you to all of the NRA members who answered the call to act during the legislative session. Without you, these victories would not have been possible. My wife and I were recently at a public gathering when someone came at us in a menacingly fashion, I pulled my shirt back, exposed my G19 and told him to stop. This seemed to stop him and he went away. My concern is that I have thought this constituted brandishing, with the possibility of losing my license. Any thoughts would be helpfull. As always I will check with the lawbooks before taking this as fact.
