I guess this doesn't apply to all.
I read last night in my new America's 1st freedom, about an incident with then Maryland Governor Donald Schafer.
To quopte the article:On March 15, 1993 he called a press conference hyping his proposal to ban 15 semi-automatic pistols.
After a reporter smiled at one of the governor's foreboding comments, Schaefer pointed a 9 mm pistol at the reporter and declared: "Some of you have never had it in your face. I bet you wouldn't be laughing. I bet you wouldn't be smiling. I don't know what would happen to your pants, but I can imagine."
Police routinely arrest people who point guns (even unloaded guns) at other people on charges of criminal assault. If a private citizen had pointed an unloaded gun at the governor, the penalty likely would have been instant death from the governor's numerous armed bodyguards. But Schaefer's press secretary later explained: "Because he did not mean it in a threatening way, I don't see that it was a problem, from his perspective.
Seems like there is a dual standard.
This is about the time a CWP-carrying audience member could have - and should have - legally blown the governor away.
Yes there is a duel standard.
Remember an unarmed subject is desired by politicans.
