As for my perspective on the use of a weapon and when to use it if some one is breaking and entering. Well if some one is breaking into my house, to me my mind set would be clear with no debate. If I decide to draw a weapon, there will be no conversation or attempt to talk or intimidate the person, if my laser sights are on their head, then to the best of my ability, that is where two rounds are going.
If I am approched on the street and I can see no way to avoid a confrontation and my mind set is that anther type of force is needed and that is the presentation of a weapon, there will be no debate, on presentation of the weapon there will be the presentation of at least 2 rounds in the air preceding to the subject, it all fall into the line of do not present a weapon unless you are 100% sure it's use is needed, dont talk or try to intimidate with it, just use it.
On the name of assault weapons, why are they called assault weapons,if you are defending your space, you are not assaulting any one, but defending, so why aren't they called defense weapons?The word assault implies that you are going to assault something, but if you are in the defense mode with one, they never call it a defense weapon, the report is always, defense was provided with an assault weapon.
Sorry, just had to be assine on the play of terminology
