Also don’t get drunk and pick a fight. He threatened two people with a knife, then was shot and killed, Merced deputies say.
He got into an argument, and decided it would be a good idea to brandish a knife. In the words of the cops, that’s when things went sideways.
The 48-year-old man was drinking during the party and got into an argument with a woman, Allen said.
According to investigators, the man then turned the knife toward another man who was defending the woman. The second man, “in fear for his life,” took out a gun and shot the 48-year-old man.
The moral of the story. Don’t be stupid; because there is always a bigger fish.
I have had someone, who was drunk, and maybe high too, pull a knife on me. I was 19 then, and he was an uninvited “guest” at a party I was picking a couple of friends up at. I was lucky he chose not to try and stab me. I was unarmed, and had yet to buy my first firearm. So, again, I was very lucky, and blessed that he went on to threaten someone else. I am so grateful for that. And, to be honest, hopeful, very hopeful I am never in such a situation again. Today, I would not be unarmed, and he would likely not survive his threatening rampage.
As I have noted before, I did have to pull a gun on a would-be robber in 1998, as I left the restaurant I managed at the time. Had I not been armed, God only knows what might have happened. And, I was very satisfied that this guy in a ski mask chose to run, and that I never had to pull that trigger
That is what the Cult of Gun Control, and the media, do not get. The last, the very last thing people who carry, or who have guns in their homes want to ever do is to use that weapon, even in self-defense. We see that weapon as one to be used to defend our lives, or the lives of loved ones. The Left, of course, see us as “trigger happy rednecks”, just salivating for a chance to shoot a “bad guy”. Nothing could be farther from the truth
