    If you change this to "they were Comming at me with a knife" instead of they were dressed in protective clothing like they may have caronavirus which makes you just as dead, would deadly force be justified?

    By his own admission, he had a gun inside the Post Office. Leaving out the fact that he pointed it at someone, he could be in a lot of trouble. The article does not even mention the Post Office violation.

    The difference is the reasonable interpretation of intent.
    Seeing people walking around with masks and gives does not mean they have a deadly virus and are intent on sharing it with you, whereas seeing someone approach with a knife, presumably held in a threatening manner to fit your scenario, the interpretation of their actions were intended to cause harm would be reasonable.

    well maybe not clinically 'craZy'.
    This is what can happen to anyone that
    watches too much of the media's 24/7
    live virus coverage. Stirred him into a frenzy.
    As for USPS gun ban, it should be challenged.
    How ironic that gov'mint agency should be the
    ones denying constitutional right to bare arms.
    Particularly with history of numerous postal clerks
    going berserk. If they are going to prohibit guns inside
    then they should provide lockers outside for patrons to
    secure EDC long enough to come inside. W/o doing that
    patrons must risk being unprotected not only inside P.O.
    also while crossing parking lot. Both ways. Fortunately my
    post office's 'no weapons permitted' sign has been bleached
    blank by the sun so no ban in effect there. At least that's the
    legal argument when caught. IF ban is so important why hasn't
    sign been replaced in last 5 years? Even federal requisition form
    doesn't take that long.

    If he kept it concealed then there would have been no issue. But, nope, dude is crazy. Throw the book at him.

    The guy looked like a mild wind would have blown him over. So he could have said he thought the mom and child was going to kick his @%$ and felt justified in using deadly force.
