What do you think? Is this kind of abuse on the part of a legitimate gun owners as rare as the pro-gun crowd pretend?But [Prosecutor Jim] Kanatzar said the shooting didn’t qualify as self-defense for several reasons: Jones didn’t have a weapon; he was outside the store; the clerks had Jones outnumbered; police were on the way; and Jones had tried to flee.
“The possession and use of a firearm requires a high level of responsibility,” Kanatzar said. “We’re alleging the defendant resorted to the use of deadly force in a situation where it was not necessary and therefore not justified.”
