Have an opinion?
Does this count?:A while back I was facing someone's knife at short distance. The atmosphere was hostile. I kept focussed on (calm, but alerted) de-escalation, but mentally was 'ready' to feel some pain.I guess with a firearm I'd proceed the same way.
I've had a gun pointed at me. I stood still and said nothing, I was frozen. Then I got my stuff and was sobbing the whole time. When your own grandfather aims a revolver at your head it really fucks you up man.
That is really messed up... I'm sorry to hear that man
I haven't spoken to my family in years. That was about 2 years ago
Pretty calm. It loses its effect after the first few times. Worse comes to worse, you die and your problems are no longer problems.
Wow! Have you had it happen to you before!
My ex boyfriend was/is such a lovely person.
I'm glad I'm seeing the word was... That was one hell of a boyfriend I think every good relationship needs a good gun to your back every once in a while :) geez... I'm sorry to hear that, I'm glad you are out of it now
Lol I am too. Thanks babe ;)
Glad you're out of that, darlin.
If my kid is with me, I go full on beast mode. If she's not, I go beast mode anyway because she still needs me.
Get it girl! Kick some asses 😘
Helllll yeah 😘😘😘
Depends on the environment. Like where I am, how far the attacker is from me, etc. I'm a martial artist. I would start by raising my hands and saying "What do you want?" Then pretend like I see something weird at a 45 degree angle behind them. Try to get them distracted by saying things like "Woah" or "OMG" while looking in that direction. The attacker might look and that's my opportunity to grab the weapon and use a few basic moves to take them down. You just have to stay calm and show that you are not afraid.
I would just give them whatever they want And id only act if its at a cross road between death and possibly the only moment i might have had to make a move and somehow get out unharmed I think thats how if i think about it
I think it would depend who was pointing the gun at me, the weapon only amplifies the holders abilities it doesn't make them a different person.
The few times that I have looked down the barrel, something in me clicks and I get cocky and belligerent. In their face aggressive. I don't understand it either. But the exact opposite of how I probably should act.
Just do what they say and try to keep their adrenaline level down maybe try to act like you understand why they’re doing what there doing to earn their good graces you can replace anything theyve stolen from you but not your life.
Honestly, I don’t know. But I’d like to think it would be the first one.Also the context of the situation would influence this so it could go either way for anyone really without further clarity.
well as long as i still get to speak and they don't just pull the trigger, that means they don't really "want" to kill me. they want me to do or say something so i'll see what they want from me.
I've only had that happen once. I didn't believe the person would shoot me. So i was pretty calm. But i still didn't want to give them a reason to change their mind. So i wasn't antagonistic.
Carefully and confident... crying will stress them out and they’ll be more likely to do something they’ll regret later
I would go on about my business and remain calm to the person whosepointing a gun to me leaves.
Just do what I'm told I guess
Attempt to grab it and shoot them... probably
I'd be annoyed
