How is it a red flag that he's prepared to defend himself against a possible robber/attacker? It's possible that op and their boyfriend don't live together and he thought op already left.
<p>As a personal handgun owner and as someone who was trained and certified for years in the state of Texas for carrying, I can tell you it is not normal nor healthy behavior to draw your firearm and point it at someone in this situation. You don't just "forget" that you have or have had guests in your home, and you don't point a gun at someone unless you are prepared to use it to kill. </p> <p>If you want the responsbility of owning a handgun, it is doubly your responsibility to be
I had a teacher say her husband pulled the gun out on her because he did not know she was home. She told him it was her and he put it down and apologized. Both of the guys just got scared. Thats what it was. They thought they were alone and heard someone walking so they grabbed the gun and found them.
Okay, but i forget when people are in my house all the time, especially when they are normally not in the house at that time of day. And if i had a person in my house that i thought was going to rob or kill me? I'm aiming the gun right at them, ready to shoot. Besides who said op's bf is trained? Training isnt required to own a gun in a lot of places.
<p>Eveni n the bizarre situation that he forgot he had a guest over, it is incredibly irresponsible and a little deranged for his knee-jerk reaction to be to point a gun at someone without assessing the situation first. Speaks highly of PTSD, and no citizen should own a gun if that is their first response to ambiguous situations.</p>
Yes, because clearly it's impossible for a human being, an incredibly flawed creature by nature, to ever forget things or to want to protect themselves and their home if they think someone or something that shouldn't be there is, in fact, there. 7, please get off your high horse and accept that human beings make mistakes. At least the man had the sense to not actually shoot right away. Give credit where it's due and stop being so damn judgmental.
maybe call out "who's there?" before fucking pulling a gun on someone. And also being forgotten about to such a deep deep level has to mean something like a red flag. Forgetting someone is there, does not excise pulling a gun on them. I'd dump a guy if he did that to me. I'd also tell all my friends. People that paranoid do not have the rationale to safely own a gun in my opinion. Just because he didn't pull the trigger wouldn't cure the relationship for me. What if he did. Seriously though, jus
<p>Red Flag? Really. What should he do. When he comes upon an armed intruder he should ask them to either A wait patiently while he goes and gets his firearm or B: Hope they don't shoot before he can pull it out of it's holster. Also, the PTSD comment makes it seem as if anyone that has PTSD shouldn't be allowed to have firearms because the boyfriend and anyone else that has it is just too emotionally unstable. That is extremely far from any truth or facts.</p>
