45. You think an absolutely legitimate shooting
would require more therapy than the successful attack would? I certainly wouldn't since it would not have been my actions and decisions that created the situation where my attacker needed to be shot or given what he wanted. I just don't understand the level of animosity you have towards others who have successfully driven off attackers, using a weapon.
