Panel says pull your gun if you feel endangered

HB 2629 would provide immunity from prosecution for anyone engaged in "defensive display" of a firearm. That ranges from telling another person you are armed to showing off the weapon, as well as actually holding the gun, provided it is not pointed directly at another person.
The legislation says the display of a firearm is justified "to the extent a reasonable person would believe that physical force is immediately necessary to protect himself against the other's use or attempted use of unlawful physical force."
