Linesman protects self with gun

After fans in Romania stormed the field to protest a questionable goal, an assistant referee took his protection into his own hands.

When fans started to harrass said AR, he apparently pulled out a gun to scare off the unruly mob.

No harm, no foul? Tell that to the police.

While certainly a loaded gun is a step to far, refs are often placed in an unsafe situation. Maybe tasers could work for that last resort of protection...

Brass knuckles? Pepper spray?
