Kinda curious here. If say for instance I was in the tent, had a concealed carry permit and had my 40mm SW.
Sitting in the tent, hear a bunch of commotion, people start to tear it down. I look at that as being in fear of my life. So, I discharge my weapon safely in the ground to get someone/anyones attention. Doesn't work.
Now, I really am in fear of my life. So, I wonder if I'd be prosecuted were I to start taking out these thugs just as quickly as I could reload.
Hmmm, would PTSD be a good defense?
