Police say a Trump supporter wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat pulled a gun on a man who threatened to assault him and then swatted at him to knock the hat off his head.

After the Trump supporter pulled the gun, the suspect fled, police said.

Should have shot him...

That sort of bigotry shouldn't be tolerated...

Shooting someone to keep you from getting your ass kicked should be a felony!

And how do you, the victim, know that all the individual will do is 'kick your ass'? How do you know that the person who breaks into your house just wants to steal your TV?

You need to (re)read the entire article, and reflect a little.

Keep in mind that this was a split second decision, with life or death consequences!

Would you have shot him? Possibly in the back, as he was turning to flee?

Geeeez LW! I can shoot someone just for jumping my fence....guess what? Nobody jumps my fence. ...ever.

If I am being assaulted for no good reason, there are no rules at that point....i will draw and defuse the situation at 2300FPS and tell my story.....At that point there is only one story to tell.

If he just wants to bounce knuckles i suggest he says so prior to assaulting me...hard to hear after that.

Nah....back shooting is just wrong, you run him down and face him, and he you..........then let it play out.

First: Exactly what is a "good reason" for assaulting another person?

Second: I am elderly with some physical limitations. I am no longer able to "bounce knuckles". So what options do I have if someone chooses to assault me 'just for fun'?

You do not, at that point one must assume the worst in that individual and prepare accordingly.

Well, if i am talking shit and won't walk away, and i clearly instigated the issue.... i could expect in the other a reaction to pop me in my mouth, would seem normal to me and the scrap would be on.....clearly my doing remember.

Your second questions answer. ...you are elderly with physical limits, you draw and shoot.....but i would do the same and have no physical limitations, and i am not elderly......attacked is a clear sign of maximum aggression IMO, and would get all the return force at my disposal. ....homey don't play that.
