Response to LAGC (Reply #71)

Fri Jul 27, 2012, 10:33 AM

214. So I've read on DU recently.

Therefore, brandishing a convincing gun replica would be sufficient in many situations.

Self defense, then, is not entirely dependent on the ability to kill or wound.

Good info, thanks.

It seems reasonable, then, that the ability to kill or wound a lot of people in a short amount of time (say, 70 people in <3 minutes, just to pick a random scenario) would be necessary for self defense only in a very, very small number of situations, if ever.

I would argue that Second Amendment advocates and detractors alike have common ground in drastically reducing the opportunities for people to kill large numbers of other people in a short amount of time.
