    So the other day i was in there with my wife looking around, THere were 2 King county Deputies in there as well doing the same,

    I had my back turned to the door and was admiring a gun i was about to ask to see when one of the employee's grabbed my gun in my serpa. I spun around holding back breaking his nose for doing something so stupid and dangerous.

    I told him "Please do not touch my gun!" He said oh you have dirt on the butt of it and i was trying to get it off for you.

    I promptly left after that as i was so upset that the cops did nothing about it and he just didnt understand why i was so upset with him for taking the actions he did.

    On my way to my car i ran into another employee there who was smoking in the parkig lot and he asked if something was wrong.

    I explained what had happened and he said that if i hadnt been OCing that it probably wouldnt have happened. Now i am thinking to myself that he is OCing himself and he is gunna tell me that?

    Just goes to prove that stupid people are everywere and they breed.

    I would have broken that guy's arm most likely......you don't sneak up behind someone and grab their gun, and I think it would have been justified to react that way.

    Jeez! You'd think that an employee of a gun store would know better! The guy is lucky he didn't get shot!

    I don't think it would have been over the top. In most cases a police officer would consider someone shoving another person an act of violence and assault. In this case they are doing a tad more than that and I would consider it an act of violence on the employees part. I would have rocked his ass and explained later.

    If he were to do that to any SWCC friends I have he would have a broke wrist and a bullet in his head. In this case, probably a broken hand...but nevertheless.

    well the important part is that he didnt get my weapon and i didnt think frag'in his ass would be the best way to handle it besides he looks like the ass not me for being so stupid and now anyone who reads this post will either be extra careful in that store or not even go at all.

    Understandable. Although, I think it would have pushed the point home if you make a big ol' noise about it right there in the middle of the shop...haha. They most liekly would have just told you not to come back though.

    Glad it didnt look bad on you though.

    Geez, if you werent OC'ing it probably wouldnt have happened. I'll remember that next time I'm in a strip joint, all you have to do it make it seen and everything is up for grabs aye?

    Unbelievable. That man deserved at the very best a stern talking to by management or the LEO's present (and that's getting off easy).

    I am fairly sure if I was in the OPs shoes the employee would at least have a broken nose and busted up eye socket.

    Kinda what I was thinking. Would be clamping down dominant hand over the grip of my weapon while turning and swinging with my left hand.

    I did have a guy in a coffee shop tap the side my firearm that was holstered with the back side of his hand. I turned to him and said "What the F*** are you touching me for?"

    He was taken back and said, "I thought I would let you know I can see the bottom of your holster under there, you have a permit for that?"

    My answer to him was, unless your a law enforcement officer take a step back. Adding, as I took up my coffee cup from the barista, "If you expect to keep your face intact, dont ever motion towards or touch a persons firearm, have a good day."

    I am a regular at this specific coffee shop and later that night when I returned one of the girls that was working there earlier stated to me that I should have knocked him on his ass because she wanted to call the police on him and state that there was a dumb idiot trying to disarm a peaceable citizen of his pistol.

    Ha, I should ask her to marry me

    Yeah, well fortunately because of my relationship standing with all of the barista I get free coffee rolled to me all the time.

    My current girlfriend is in the habit of buying me ammo already...although she has been hinting that for this Christmas season she was thinking about buying me a new shotgun just so she can use it.

    I'm pretty sure an elbow into the solar plexis would be excusable as self defense.

    All you did was ask him WTF he was doing? Dude...you should've rocked him. Justified IMHO. Was the wife there too? If so, she should've pulled on him. That would've gotten the LEO's attention.After thatyou could own a gun shop because he was an idiot.

    That employee could have been charged with theft of a firearm, which is a Class B Felony in this state. I would have pushed the officers to do so, ifthe store waswithin their jurisdiction.(He's probably prosecutable under RCW 9.41.270for attempting to draw a firearm in a manner, under circumstances, and at a time and place which warrant alarm for the safety of other persons. (This is only a Gross Misdemeanor.)



    RCW 9A.56.300: Theft of a firearm

    1) A person is guilty of theft of a firearm if he or she commits a theft of any firearm.

    (2) This section applies regardless of the value of the firearm taken in the theft.

    (3) Each firearm taken in the theft under this section is a separate offense.

    (4) The definition of "theft" and the defense allowed against the prosecution for theft under
    RCW9A.56.020 shall apply to the crime of theft of a firearm.

    (5) As used in this section, "firearm" means any firearm as defined in
    RCW 9.41.010.

    (6) Theft of a firearm is a class B felony.


    RCW9A.56.020

    (1) "Theft" means:

    (a) To wrongfully obtain or exert unauthorized control over the property or services of another or the value thereof, with intent to deprive him or her of such property or services; or
    [snip]


    It's apparent that the employee was wrongfully exerting unauthorized control over your property, which was a firearm.

    I think attempted theft of a firearm would have been an appropriate charge for the LEO that was present to arrest under. That would be classified as a class C felony.

    I think you did a good job. You excercised good discretion. It's really easy to jump and say "oh I would have broken his nose." You would have to prove that he intended to take your firearm AND deprive you of it. I think assaulting him, or drawing, would have been a bad thing to do because it would have on the news and it would have made gun owners look bad because you know how the news would spin it.

    "Gun owner breaks gun store employees nose for touching his firearm."

    Anyways, I live in FW. I drive to Renton to buy my guns for a reason. I hate that gun store.
