Pulling a weapon is not de-escalation. It means you have to defend someone's life.

Cops can pull weapons to de-escalate.

CCW should not.

As someone mentioned, it's a fine line that is better not to dance on...

Too many movies have idiots brandishing for power/persuasion.

Real life doesn't work that way...

Example:

- Robber pulls knife on gas station clerk.
- clerk pulls gun on robber..

- robber drops knife
- clerk still has unarmed robber at gunpoint

- robber then pulls a gun on clerk killing him in "self defense"

- yes its happened.. ie the brandisher getting shot by not de-brandishing quick enough

Dont brandish
Ccw is not for de-escilation
It is for life or death
