In most peoples eyes, only if the words "off-duty law enforcement officer" were tied to his name. What would be more ironic would be if he was 19. Hey, want me to buy you a beer? Oh, wait, nevermind.

If he's 19 and carrying a pistol he's probably in a world of legal hurt regardless of being a hero.

In that scenario, I would use thier tool of choice, the whiney, slimey lawyer. Defamation of character, and I own them.

When a man dare not speak without malice for fear of giving insult, that is when truth starts to die. Truth is the truest freedom.

Yep, his argument holds water.

The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.
