At 21 I am sure the ink on his gun permit is barely dry. Then there is the issue of why you are drawing a weapon inside and in the company of anyone, least of all a minor. Even when I was a volunteer and worked as an armed guard, all the while advocating against the departments general gun ban, I never took a weapon out of a holster with other people in the room. I am glad I never needed to.

Even IF there was a reason for him to remove his weapon from the holster... He must have missed the key safety rules.

  • All guns are always loaded. (Treat them so!)
  • Never point the gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.
  • Keep your booger picker off the bang switch until you are ready to fire.
  • Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
