21. You're making some pretty big statements....
care to back them up?

Where has OpSom said anything about shooting an unarmed purse snatcher? And how do you NOT consider somebody who proudly boasts of "bouncing their head off the pavement like a basketball" to be non-violent?

BTW, here at least, the conduct you claim to have taken part in (the bouncing of heads off pavement bit) would be enough of a legal justification for a person to use lethal force to stop the attacker (you).

Which is more violent? Ownership of an assault weapon that is never fired, or bouncing people's heads off the pavement like a basketball? Here, ownership of an AW is not only not considered violent, it's considered legal. Bouncing people's heads off the pavement like a basketball, however, qualifies as attempted murder, and is punishable by a sentence in State prison of twenty years or more, no parole.
