Long overdue. It shouldn't be a felony to be holding a firearm.

Whether "brandishing a gun" should be legal or not should depend entirely upon the circumstances of where, why & how it's brandished.

As such the above statement of opinion fails to take into account any possible limiting circumstances & therefore must be rejected given it's failure to do so.

“My argument is: just because I have a weapon on my person and I show that weapon, I should not be charged with a felony — a 20-year felony — for simply brandishing my firearm in my attempt to de-escalate what I consider a situation where I felt threatened,” Harper said.

The deciding factor appears to be if it is pointed

Should be one thing to show a fire arm if violence has ensued or is imminent. To walk into a bar holding a pistol in hand when there is no threat of violence is simply unreasonable, irresponsible and, frankly, idiotic.

That's private property and the owner can allow, or not.

Regardless, there should be a law against such stupidly childish and threatening behavior.

Part of being a responsible gun owner is not to casually brandish your weapon.

Ha! You are assuming the vast majority of folks are responsible. Not so.

Most people who purchase and register their guns are responsible. Maybe not so much for the wannabe gangstas.
