Apparently the NRA is getting involved...

A spokesperson said today, "SEE! SEE!? ....no guns were used!"

The guy who got cut was the instigator and simply wouldn't leave the 49er fan alone.    He's in stable condition after being slashed in defense by the 49er fan and the 49er fan is not in custody.

the person you just attacked has the right to use whatever means necessary to defend himself.


(Assempt) murder means necessary to defend himself? What if the falcons fan then pulls a gun and 'just defends himself' from getting stabbed?

That the stupid falcon fan deserved an answer, can not be suprised to have gotten an answer/reaction for his stupid action, does not justify unnecassary violence.

Lol welcome to America. Killing someone as a means of self defense has Ben acceptable for decades upon decades.

Is he without fault in this situation, violently assaulted, forced to use any kind of actions to prevent severe crime?

Just defending himself does not mean self defense.

The Falcons fan was at fault.   He got what he was asking for.

Stabbing or shooting someone would probably seen as excessive use of force by a jury.

Depends how much bigger the Falcons fan was.   If the 9ers fan was a little guy, then it was justified.   That Falcons fan was huge.

To be at fault does not make the other fan innocent.
Throwing a  punch at someone else deserves to be punished, just stabbing a knife into someones neck for is over the top. You could make a case how the falcon fan actually tried to defend himself from getting stabbed. His failure makes him to be at fault? The 9ers fans, as it turned, was a threat to the Falcons fans life, the 9ers fan prolly just was threatened by a black eye.

None of us knows the circumstances, but odds are the 9er fan was celebrating and obnoxious. That doesn't justify the attack. Odds are also pretty good that the 9er fan was outnumbered and fearful of serious injury. A Giants fan was killed in Philly after a game. The threat of the knife should have been enough to deter the fowlgoon fan. Stupid people deserve what they get. He got cut. He didn't die. The 9er fan had the opportunity to kill him and didn't. You can't prove intent other than to defend himself. It's a game people. There's nothing about it worth death or injury.
