You point something that looks like a gun at me, especially in the dark, and I’ll do exactly the same thing.
I don’t care if it’s a paintball gun, an airsoft gun, or a cap gun. If you point it at me, I’m not obliged to wait until the first round is fired before I shoot.
I believe that Texas has an “Under cover of darkness” law for that reason.
It’s the law in Tx, your on my property at midnight, menacing. uninvited.
Am I supposed to figure out yer a drunken jokster?
