    That is the most complex question in training someone (women). When to draw. What to say. When to aim. When to shoot. At someone who MIGHT be dangerous approaching. In most states, threatening someone with a gun is a felony UNTIL (generally) you had a legal right to shoot.
    I know it can probably be pretty complicated. That is why, if I ever decide to get a gun, I will take safety and instructional classes. It would be totally worth the extra $$ to be in the "know".

    Florida has an insane law that a "warning shoot" is a MINIMUM of 20 years, even if to legitimately scare someone off, and probably more of a sentence if you just shot the person - where shooting the person to death would be legal but its 20 years if instead you just fired a warning shot.
    That is a completely ridiculous law.

    It is NOT a simplistic answer to a complex question.
    As posed, the poll question is absurb, but I'll not be forced into the gun lovers arena.
    As stated before, the answer is a better people via time and education.

    The question is -exceedingly- simple -- one has stooped more violent crime than the other.
    So... A or B?

    This is such a stupid poll I think I'll start one of my own.

    Which do you suppose has caused more violent crime?

    A) Cell phone

    B) Revolver

    Revolver, unless you got the gun app.

    It asks a simple question, to compare one number to another.
    Maybe you just don't like the answer?

    Re: What do you suppose has stopped more violent crime?

    A gun has stopped more violent crimes than a cellphone.

    What has prevented more violent crimes?

    A gun or a cellphone?
    Language is political. Each of us talks, listens, and thinks in his/her own special language that has been shaped by our culture, experiences, profession, personality, mores and attitudes. The chances of us meeting someone else who talks the exact same language is pretty remote.

    It's a stupid poll. You'll get all of the gun nuts voting for the revolver and most of the rest of us won't bother.

    That's a very 3rd-grade response. Well done.
