    Answered . Yes a person can go to jail for pulling a gun on someone. They would need to be arrested, prosecuted and convicted before that would happen. If the police don't know who to arrest and the prosecutors doesn't know who to prosecute, then s/he won't get convicted and won't ever face any jail.
