Only if you think someone pulling a real gun or a felony menacing conviction is trouble. Otherwise have fun you scamps

Brandishing a weapon is a felony, I think.

Brandishing a fake weapon is probably still a felony, and feloniously stupid.

Whether or not the weapon is real MIGHT matter in a courtroom setting, but it is absolutely a great way to get yourself shot by police, or god knows who else.

Is it wrong to think that maybe she ought to just let him keep doing it, in the hopes that he will never get a chance to breed?

Some road rager sees it and pulls out a real gun.

And then there's the cops.

So, no, not at all, internet person. No way in hell pointing a fake gun from your car at targets outside of it could ever possibly result in problems to anyone.

Well, does it LOOK like a real weapon? Is it a Nerf squirt gun that looks fake? Then probably not. Is it one of those realistic-looking squirt guns that looks exactly like an AK-47 and has your dumbass boyfriend taken the orange plastic dealy out of the muzzle? Then yes definitely and also he'll get shot 93 times by the cops when they pull him over after they get the 911 call that some fool is driving down Main Street with an AK-47.

So the answer is maybe.

Agreed. a Crescent wrench is always a nice thing to have about. Ditto for a Magnesium allow Ridgid pipe wrench, you know, because they are lighter and easier to swing. Great for zombie skulls too- make sure the jaws are steel though- some zombies will have plates in the head

Looks totally real (except the frame is made of plastic). The bullets unscrew and you put caps in them so it even cycles when fired, though nothing comes out of the barrel. If I ever wanted to really fark with someone I'd use it. I can't imagine a circumstance where I would though. I think the last time it was fired was during a high school drama skit. 

I used to have a Browning Hi-Power one, too, but someone stole it.

A vanity plate I'd spotted on an LA freeway many years ago: HAVE GUN.

Since this was in the Hollywood area, it's possible it may have been a car which belonged to someone associated with (or simply a fan of) the western TV series Have Gun, Will Travel.

But I still gave him a wide berth, just in case.

I had the Broomhandle Mauser. If memory serves they got sued by a few firearm manufacturers for not asking permission on copyrighted designs. One of those in kit form is worth a fortune now. If I only would have known...

That will likely get you shot by a real gun here in Arizona where everybody carries one because everyone else carries one. There's really not to many consequences or restrictions outside of discharging them publicly. I hate guns in theory but of course I have to have one.

The paranoia is rampant 'round these parts.

Hot Shot Wasp Spray. Totally legal, range 25 feet, with a sweeping motion will put 1-4 bad guys into critical care.

A hammer or even a "club" steering wheel lock can be considered a potential weapon.

Both of the above courtesy of a Santa Ana cop I know.

Yeah, so can my fork and spoon and knife and napkin with salt and pepper packets from many fast food places. Santa Ana- I will never trust a wind cop.

Anything is a potential weapon, grasshopper. anything. Make it count, but let road rage fools go to their own doom.

doglover: IronTom: Brandishing a weapon is a felony, I think.



Not if you have to.


You never "have" to brandish a weapon. If you pull it out, it needs to be a situation where you are prepared to actually use it. In my CCW class, they even advised against 'warning' that you are going to shoot, as you could technically get busted for that, they said your best bet is to make sure that you are legally in the right, and then fire. Warning and brandishing are basically assault, since they are threatening bodily harm.

This woman's BF is skating a very thin line here.

Don't want to use it? Don't pull it out.

The best way to end up getting shot or having to shoot someone is letting people know you have a gun.

It's not a "oooo now I'm going to pull out my magic ticket and shiat is going to go my way" device.

It's a farking firearm. A lethal weapon. And it will garner the appropriate response, perhaps from someone you didn't even see or doesn't understand wtf you are doing.

You don't get it out unless you are about to use it.

Not really. Brandishing a weapon without the intent(or ability) to use it is an easy way to turn something like road rage into getting killed, possibly even something like beaten to death when the person you threatened gets pissed.

I know that people think that anyone who owns a gun, or carries concealed, is a paranoid freaking who has issues with the size of his penis, but in reality, a good CCW class will teach you that drawing your weapon is the absolute last resort, but that if you draw it, you must be prepared to use it, no hemming and hawing about it. They treat it as serious business.
