That's not what brandishing is. Ohio doesn't define the word in code, but the jury instruction say brandishing

means to wave or exhibit in a menacing or challenging way.
Simply having an unholstered pistol is not brandishing in Ohio. There must be an element of threat, menace, or intimidation. You're factually wrong here.
