If you believe pulling a gun can defuse that situation, then first consider shouting to the BG that "someone already called 9-1-1. The cops are on the way." At least after that, if the BG continued to be aggressive, you'd have a better argument as to why you pulled your gun.
Although many good citizens in your jurisdiction may own and carry guns, keeping it real still fall on those who carry badges.
In a gunfight, even if you do everything right, you can still get killed.
