the first 2 people are wrong.merelt pointing your finger at someone breaks no laws.it would require much more plus the finger pointing to break any laws. ----------------retired texas deputy sheriff-----------------

Only if your finger is loaded.

It can be considered criminal threats, if done to a private person. If done to a police officer, and that police officer believes they may act on the threat (with a real gun, obviously), it can be considered threatening a executive officer or public official. Not a smart thing to do if your on probation.
