Bad CCW incident in Philly

A guy intervened in a domestic incident and pulled his gun and killed a guy. The left will make a big deal out of this.

Article is missing lots of details. Not saying its a good shoot but there are no details about the actual encounter. There are many places (like MD] that will automatically arrest you and then decide if it was justified self defense,

I agree but the left will run with it anyway.

More than likely a guy getting rough with the female, a guy steps in to her aid, bf attempts to make him mind his own business, ccw holder defends himself.

If a guy doesnt mind getting violent with a girl he loves, he'll have no problem getting violent with a man trying to intervene.

Remember that any media outlet in philly is likely to report it in a way to make guns look as bad as they can.

Had he not stepped in, he would have been an evil misogynist.

Seriously.
This is not an excuse, just an observation. Some people aren't emotionally mature enough to carry a firearm. Rights are funny that way though.

Understanding the Teen Brain

It doesnít matter how smart teens are or how well they scored on the SAT or ACT. Good judgment isnít something they can excel in, at least not yet.

The rational part of a teenís brain isnít fully developed and wonít be until age 25 or so.

In fact, recent research has found that adult and teen brains work differently. Adults think with the prefrontal cortex, the brainís rational part. This is the part of the brain that responds to situations with good judgment and an awareness of long-term consequences. Teens process information with the amygdala. This is the emotional part.

In teenís brains, the connections between the emotional part of the brain and the decision-making center are still developingóand not necessarily at the same rate. Thatís why when teens experience overwhelming emotional input, they canít explain later what they were thinking. They werenít thinking as much as they were feeling.

On the one hand , illiustrates how it's usually a bad idea to intervene in situations not involving you or family members.

But that said , all the details are missing .

Right and of course no offense to the younger guys here (especially you because you're smarter than normal ).
I do think that people generally make better decisions once they approach 30 and this guy's age may have played a part in him getting trigger happy.
But I really have no idea at all what happened; he could be a Navy SEAL for all I know.
