13. It's about both.

The OP is about gun safety because warning shots may rapidly escalate a confrontation, may kill or wound innocent people, are destructive without purpose, and in most cases violate the law.

The OP is about shooting people because, if it is necessary to shoot somebody in defense, firing warning shots depletes your ammunition, disrupts your hearing, diverts your aim, and generally puts you at a tactical disadvantage.
