Gets a “Mo” because he didn’t have the weapon on him. If he were to present to the ready, earlier in the scenario, firing may not have been necessary. Perhaps the homeless guy was drunk and merely defending his “home” and a life might have been saved — possible, anyway.
Banner had just finished helping a relative change a flat tire when Rock, who was sleeping on the property, woke up and started accusing the victim and his wife of “stealing his stuff.”He got into his vehicle when Rock grabbed his arm through the open window and tried to stab him. The man grabbed his gun, which was near the driver’s seat, and fired one shot, striking Rock in his upper torso.Authorities said Banner holds a valid concealed weapons permit.
