    property, with a gun pointed at them is already illegal. It's called brandishing.

    The fact that they failed to be prosecuted is not a problem with the gun laws, it's a problem with selective, lazy, and corrupt law enforcement.

    Indeed, the vast majority of times I hear someone cry, "there's something wrong with the gun laws that this could be allowed to happen!", they're describing something that's already illegal.
