What would it take, if you were in public, to intervene in someone else's life/business/affairs? How would you step up?

It really just depends on what is going on. Is someone being bullied? Are they in a fight? Is there a gun to their head? Are they holding a little remote in their hand shouting "Allahu Akbar" or something in another foreign language?

Well then. I would definitely stand up for someone if they were being bullied. That's a given imo. If there was a fight I would do my best to break it up, but you never know what will happen in those circumstances -- I might have to end up defending myself and hospitalizing someone if I have to. If a gun is involved... eh, I will think about it. I know how to disarm a gunman if I have to, and I would gladly take it and turn the barrel right back in their face, make them get on the ground, and then disassemble the weapon. I will use the gun if needed, but I would only go for the knees; they can't walk very far with bullet holes in both kneecaps.

Oh, I read the question wrong. I interpreted it as "what's your price?".

Far be it from me to question your expertise, but have you ever actually navigated your way out of a situation in which you were being threatened by an armed assailant?

One with a knife, not a gun. But I do know how to disarm a gunman and defend myself if I am held at gunpoint.

I lift my leg and whilst it's in the air I would move it forward. Step up
I crouch down and place my head between my knees then simply fall forward. That's how I roll
