  1. Just goes to show; you just never know what you will run into. I wouldn’t expect a shooter when checking an abandon building for a squatter. Of course, the bad guy has the advantage of surprise anyway. I hope the Officer is okay; sounds like he is. He drove himself to the hospital and has been released. The nut cases are now targeting cops; be careful out there.
  2. Anyone here that has been a cop will tell you; if he was being charged with a violent felony (aggravated assault or attempted murder) the cops were at his house several times and probably at his place of employment. I doubt this was a surprise to him. Of course we are basing our opinions on a news story; so I could certainly be wrong. Can someone accuse you of shooting at them and a warrant be issued for your arrest? Absolutely, and if the DA believes them you will probably go to trial. My guess is the gun charges will be the least of his worries. But again just a WAG based on an internet story.
  3. The story says he fired 5 shots at a guy during an argument.
  4. On the default theme, if I pick "content I have posted in"; that's what it shows. On the dark theme it shows everything, including threads I haven't posted in. (I didn't see this posted anywhere, but I didn't look through everything)
  5. https://www.atf.gov/firearms/qa/does-customer-have-be-certain-age-buy-firearms-or-ammunition-licensee Does a customer have to be a certain age to buy firearms or ammunition from a licensee? Yes. Under the Gun Control Act (GCA), shotguns and rifles, and ammunition for shotguns or rifles may be sold only to individuals 18 years of age or older. All firearms other than shotguns and rifles, and all ammunition other than ammunition for shotguns or rifles may be sold only to individuals 21 years of age or older. Licensees are bound by the minimum age requirements established by the GCA regardless of State or local law. However, if State law or local ordinances establish a higher minimum age for the purchase or disposition of firearms, the licensee must observe the higher age requirement. [18 U.S.C. 922(b)(1) and (b)(2); 27 CFR 478.99(b)]
  6. Source? I don’t believe there are 30 states where you can carry a loaded handgun without a permit; training or not.
  7. I use the grey theme because the room is usually dark; it looks fine. Please do not make another nasty looking black gun site that we can’t read (or please make it an option the rest of us won’t have to deal with). I’m still getting use to the software change. I still haven’t found a way to have a one bottom click to show threads I am participating in whether read or not, like the old software. But I am okay with the new software.
  8. Well, we are basing our opinions on two sentences. The test of criminal charges is, “Would a reasonable person (jury) believe the homeowner was in immediate danger of death or great bodily harm?” If we can assume that the two suspects were firing at the home owner; there was an immediate threat and the homeowner is good. Could the homeowner be sued by the drivers family for a wrongful death, assuming he was not threatening the homeowner? Sure. But he was a willful participant in a violent felony. That case wouldn’t go anywhere. Michigan has no duty to retreat. Here is what the law says.
