Michigan Court Appeals on gun charge

Good read in National Review about a black woman with CCW brandishing/ pulling her (unloaded) pistol and pointing it at a car. The trial court and jury sentenced her to 2 years after determining that she did not meet the standard of a reasonable person believing that the use of deadly force was necessary to prevent imminent death or serious bodily harm.
Seems the Court of Appeals got it right distinguishing between the right to use deadly force (i.e. pulling the trigger) and the right to use the THREAT of deadly force as a means to ending a confrontation.
