Dunno about that. Did they get off his lawn and leave him and his family alone?
That was what he was trying to accomplish, wasn't it?
No one died. No one was hurt. They left him alone. Seems like an effective negotiation strategy to me.
Pointless antagonizing that gets HIM arrested and has evil bastards sneering at him and threatening his family with death at a future date to be announced. As well as firing a gun in a manner that could get an innocent person three blocks away killed. Stupid covers it.
