Ok guys, I have a question. I carry a gun on me everyday, if not on me, its beside me in my car, but mostly on me. Anyway, I was wondering what the law is if a smaller man is attacked by a bigger guy, say puts his hands on him, trying to beat him, strangle him, etc. Say the guy is mayby 5-9 my height, skinny, or mayby athletic, but not a big guy and say the other guy is 250-300 lbs and is aggressive. Does the smaller guy have the option of defending himself, or mayby shooting if he feels like his life is in danger from the big guy trying to beat him or whatever. Does the big guy have to have a gun, knife, bat, etc before the smaller guy does anything to stop the atack, and maby save his life, and is using his big fist to do the smaller guy harm, and possible kill him? Just curious. What action does a smaller man have against a bigger gorilla? Other then some type of defense, martial art move, etc?
