    I mow my own lawn.

    You could say that I am my own lawn mower.

    Please don't shoot my lawn mower.

    It makes me wonder if we all need to wear body cams when out in the public arena.

    Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive. - Noah Webster

    well it didn't tear his arm off so it couldn't have been a 38 Spl!!
    likely another black powder caliber !

    Does the shooter feel he is in jeopardy of eminent bodily harm? That's the test, and beyond shadow of a doubt is the prosecutions burden.

    Now, if I saw Ricky with a lawnmower, I'd feel threatened, and I'm not even a blade of grass!

    I have several BP revolvers whose caliber starts with a 4. One of 'em even has a .45ACP conversion cylinder.
