71. The "Two Second Rule" is a rule of body physics NOT the law
It takes the nerves about two second to see a person pulling a gun (or otherwise attacking you) process it your brain and react to the gun being pulled. It is the same "Two Second Rule" for following a car, and for the same reason, it takes a person at least two seconds to react to the Automobile in front of them slamming on their brakes, to slam on one's own brakes. If you do NOT give yourself that two seconds, you will hit the car in front when he or she slams down on his or her brakes. The reason is you did NOT give yourself enough TIME to re-act.
