You should report it. Otherwise police might hear from them first and now you are the guy with a gun harassing them for just asking you about littering.
IMHO I don't think you were right to pull the gun. But I wasn't there.
Glad it worked out okay and you didn't have to shoot anyone and you didn't get the crap beat out of you (or worse), but I hate litterbugs. Why should someone else have to pick up your trash? Because SOMEONE will have to pick it up. I'm sure it's not the first time you've left your trash for someone else to pick up.
edit: and there is no flipping way I would report it.
Pull this post, but don't report it. Sounds well played to me but might want to confirm your destination was not observed.
LOL. Epic fail for littering. As for the urban yutes, well, some people are just looking for a reason to be offended by anything. Especially that type. Chances are they were eying you before you tossed the bottle. Just an excuse to start something.
Just out of curiosity...is it legal to pull your piece on someone who at that time is only threatening you with words or the body language of a physical altercation?
Sounds like you did what you thought you had to but I wonder had the two guys rushed you and you fired, what would happen when Portland Finest showed up? My guess is the slammer and a small fortune on lawyer fees.
When I got my CHL certificate from the class, the teacher expressed that even if someone punches you in the face you can not draw or fire on him, only when you really fear for your life can you draw and/or fire.
That could be BS but thats how I roll, I would never draw until the moment before my sidearm certainly needed to be fired as our legal system is CRAZY unless it is clear cut SD...
litter thug? jk. glad nobody was hurt and hopefully retard learned his lesson
with the information given I disagree with the littering and the drawing of your weapon
I don't like the littering either, but 2 in front and 2 in back sounds like a pretty serious threat. And I had no idea NWFA switched words for you to bubblegum - thats pretty funny.
were they in a prius? Can you imagine a pimp or drug dealer who is "green", sounds like something from SNL.
I agree sounds like a white guy with a gun looking for trouble. Should be easy to get jail time for you. Don't even screen the jury that much
The fact that you are armed makes any confrontation an armed confrontation. If a dude drops you and then searches your body and finds the weapon...not good. Reality and what is taught at those classes don't always jive. Something to seriously consider about your outlook.
IMO, you were within your rights to draw your firearm. Disparity of force, there were more of them and they could have overpowered you. Your bad for littering though. Sounds like a couple of punks looking for a fight, maybe next time they will not be so quick to attempt to pick a fight with people just passing by.
Litter Thug ....that is kind of catchy ... You were there and what you did worked ... I think it's cool.
Best call so far!
In your defense, no offense intended at all, but I'm pretty sure we have met and your a little guy. Looking like an easy mark, correct me if I'm wrong. That may help the readers understand you and your point better. I look like a ruthless thug and never get harrased. That's why I try to smile and be friendly, to thwart my stereo type. Well and I'm a nice guy lol. Puff your chest up and grow a beard, maybe a neck tatt lol, you will be fine. I myself would not let a group of ppl in my AO that had hostile moments and or words.
