    You should have every right to use a gun in a situation like this, even if you're twice the size of the assailant. He could be a ninja master for all you know.

    Who was the idiot who even allowed charges to be filed? Don't care if the perp wants to file...seriously!

    Bravo to you, btw!

    The perp is lucky the dad did not kill his sorry ass.
    That being said the bleeding hearts will be lining up at a later date crying about how the perps rights were somehow violated. Just shoot the mfer and be done with it. He will do it again to someone else's kid......book it.

    What this guy did was perfect.

    First, there is a notion of immediate danger, and he stopped what was happening. But what would happen if someone killed someone and simply said they were molesting a child? The problem is we'd all immediately be on his side because of that visceral response to such a heinous act.

    So no, I don't recommend killing a guy in that situation, despite how hard it might be to fight those emotions. I do believe in justice and it will happen here.

    That would be the question. What if, after knocking the guy out, the dad kept beating on him until he died?

    See this is my issue. At that point it becomes one person's word against a dead guy.
