In a state like Texas where everyone is packing heat, all you have to do is shoot them and make up some bullshit story about how they were going for their gun and you felt threatened. If it's a gang fight, they meet all the legal requirements, especially if it's a Stand Your Ground type law.

That's why Texas only had 48 justifiable homicides in 2010? As opposed to over 7000 homicides? Doesn't seem to happen very often considering how easy it is to get rid of somebody (according to you).
