When are you legally within your right to protect yourself with a firearm from bodily harm? Hypothetically, you accidentally tap the car in front of you at a stop sign. You get out of your car to exchange information and the other driver in a fit of road rage takes a swing at you. If he breaks your nose that's bodily harm but in my opinion it doesn't rise to the level required to protect yourself with deadly force. What if he keeps coming after you? The reason I ask, I am prescribed an irreversible blood thinner by my hematologist. So, if someone would break my nose it could be a major medical emergency. If I suffered a concussion it could be fatal. I would consider this a special circumstance threat requiring me to protect myself against harm...but would law enforcement and the courts?
