Criminal Act Disguised as a Legitimate DGU

A Longview woman who was walking at Lake Sacajawea with her 6-year-old son pulled a gun on a man who exposed his genitals to her Wednesday evening, according to police.
The 35-year-old woman was near Martin Dock around 8:10 p.m. when the man approached her “aggressively,” sat down and began performing a sex act, then suggested she should watch him, according to the woman and accounts from police.
“I put the magazine in my gun. I cocked it,” the woman said in an interview Thursday night. “I said, ‘You need to leave or Ill shoot you. I’m going to blow your brains out.’ ”
“Oh, [expletive]!” the man declared, before running away.
As distasteful as this guy's behavior was, there was no threat of bodily harm. There was no reason to draw the gun and certainly no reason to threaten to blow his brains out. A simple walking away and calling the police would have sufficed.
You see, this is one of the ways gun-rights fanatics compile those incredible totals of so-called DGUs. Many of them are criminal acts disguised.
