Assault by Pointing a Gun
Assault by pointing a gun occurs when a person intentionally points a gun at another. The statute does not differentiate between whether the gun was pointed in fun or otherwise or whether the gun was loaded or not. Assault by pointing a gun is a class A1 misdemeanor under North Carolina General Statute 14-43. The maximum punishment under the law is 150 days incarceration and a discretionary fine not limited by statute.
