2. This is what I don't understand...
WHAT LEGAL IMPLICATIONS? They were attacked, they defended themselves. End of story. Second, gun lovers always claim that the 'criminals' will be afraid if people arm themselves and defend themselves. These stories keep saying that ships defending themselves will "increase" violence as pirates get "bigger weapons". My opinion is they waited too long to start hitting back. Pirates were able to turn loot into more weapons and faster ships. Third, "small caliber gunshot"? Contractors are defending ships with small caliber ammo? I know some automatic weapons use small caliber ammo, but WTF?
