24. If you're in a vehicle and your "attacker" is not...

 

Why in the world wouldn't you just drive away or at the very least stay in the car with the windows up. You're sitting in a 2 ton death machine perfectly safe. If the douchebag comes to your car and tries to physically enter it... THEN you take action to defend yourself.

What if you just outright shot the guy?

I doubt that they would determine that one would have reasonable fear of death if the person you shot was merely approaching you and had made no clear threats he was acting upon. I don't think you can assume that he made a threat you and then assume he is acting all the while assuming he is armed.
