I was in my apartment on my laptop when I hear a bunch of noise outside. I live near a university and it's a saturday night, so this is pretty usual. However I begin to hear people screaming at each other so I go outside to see what's going on. At this point I see a guy who pushes a girl, gets back in his car, and drives off very quickly. I got his license plate number and some guy who was with the girl calls the police. I talk to the girl to figure out what happened and this is basically what went on The girl with her friends (two guys and one other girl) were walking down 4th ave (street with a ton of bars) when some guys pull up in a car and start hitting on the two girls. This goes on for a while and after they yell at the guys in the car to leave them alone, one of the guys pulled out a handgun and told them they should be nicer to strangers (or something to this effect). They reverse out so the group can't get a license plate at this time. Now at this point is when they are in my apartment complex's parking lot. The car drives up again and this time one of the guys comes out with a baseball bat. He hits the two guys the girls were with and then also hits both the girls. I came outside to see what was going on right after this had happened. So basically what's going on in my mind right now is that if I came out earlier/if the guys were still there, I would have confronted them. Now, I'm pretty sure I could have taken a drunk guy with a baseball bat. I've taken enough MMA where this shouldn't be a problem and I have been in a somewhat similar situation before. The problem is that I'm fairly positive that if I took him down, that guy would have shot me at that point, and that's a pretty terrifying thought. I can take a bat or a knife, but not a firearm... I shouldn't be so quick to act next time unless someone's life is really in danger.
