I've read two cases today, one where he was convicted of a felony, the other where he was acquitted. This is esp. a problem if you OC. But even CCW, all someone has to do is say black handgun was pointed at me, which is what most carry. False accusations are rarely prosecuted... As someone who has been maliciously sued and won, I know how easy it is for someone to make an accusation. It took several years to win the suit. But it still took time and $$$$$.... I think I will avoid OC for this reason alone from now on. But even CCW puts you at risk. Starting to debate whether a gun introduces too many legal risks...Our justice system is beyong screwed up. An accusation can send you to prison. Many murderers and rapists turn out to be innocent, sent to life in prison just on a single persons testimony, so it doesn't take much to send a guy to prison by making up brandishing accusations... I carry a pen camera and have a dash cam, but the pen camera has a 30 min battery life and unlike the dash cam, is turned on after the fact. Perhaps a key is mitigation: there is safety in numbers so avoid going anywhere alone? Or at least if not with a friend, be in a public place with impartial witnesses?
