So, I have seen several instances now, especially because of the rioting and looting occurring, of people who fire warning shots to warn those trying to threaten them. Is this legal? (obviously different states will have different gun laws , I’m in Texas)
10/3 update. Lots of really good advise and points of view. My question still stands though, is it even legal? Me personally, warning shots aren’t worth what those bullets might be worth in a gunfight. But these people who we have seen on the news that have had to defend themselves, I’ve noticed several of them have fired warning shots. And I’m mainly concerned with the legality of it. Sure they don’t get charged for having to defend themselves, but are they at risk of, or should be charged for n.d. or something like that?
