Did you see this? | (Manor Township) “A Lancaster County man convicted of disorderly conduct for making a shooting gesture with his hand has lost his bid to have it overturned.” – WITF
But we wonder, what if the person pointing has a right to carry and thinks that his/her life is in danger? And what if there’s a red tip on the offending finger?
But a single digit raised toward the sky is a protected gesture regarded as “freedom of speech.”
Perhaps pointing a single finger in a menacing manner is considered a “true threat.”
All this is baffling to us; but that’s what courts do. They decide what’s acceptable and not. When it’s acceptable and when it’s not. To be safe, keep your finger(s) holstered, unless you’re flipping the bird.
