Today, while walking downstairs to go to work, I turned the corner and my boyfriend pulled a gun on me. Apparently, he forgot I was there. FML

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>Because it's far more likely he will shoot OP than ever shooting an intruder. If you don't believe me, feel free to look at the gun death statistics in the United States.</p>

<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. &nbsp;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. &nbsp;</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.

How is this a red flag? If he pulled a gun on OP because he didn't want them to leave for work that'd be a huge red flag. Not knowing who's in your house and pulling a gun in self defense: not a red flag.

<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. &nbsp;Speaks highly of PTSD, and no citizen should own a gun if that is their first response to ambiguous situations.</p>

Nope, I know alot of guys that would do this. Guess why.. Because they are scared. They are scared that someone will get the jump on them and they can't defend themselves. A teacher of mine said her husband did this to her before.

So if you thought a stranger was in your house what would you do? Ask them why he/she is there? I don't understand why this is so hard for you to rationalize

OP did say pulled not pointed, you can draw your weapon without presenting it.

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

You couldn't be more correct, now please tell that to the American Police at Kaylanafml

Or he just needed some money.

Not the brightest bulb in the box, that one.

<p>Rough neighbourhood??</p>

<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>

So glad I don't live in the states where guns are so prevalent and these sort of situations exist

<p>Is your boyfriend Oscar Pistorius?</p>

at least you know that he will always have your back in the case of a home-invasion.
