I agree-- leaving the scene is the best "defense" of all.<quoted text>Oh, and PLEASE do not get me wrong here.
I'm a huge fan of unassing the area, rather than getting in a gunfight. Or avoiding the area to begin with.
But if you're in your own home? Leaving may not be a reasonable option.
I'm kind of torn about this one-- as I do think each life is unique, and worthy of trying to preserve.
But I also think an individual should have the right to stop someone else from doing violence to them.
