One Punch, One Kill

I often caution that a bar-handed attack, absent substantial aggravating factors, is almost invariably going to be treated by the courts as a non-deadly force attack--one not likely to cause death or serious bodily injury--and thus as a consequence can generally only be defended against by non-deadly defensive means: meaning, not a gun.

Many folks who carry guns lawfully for personal protection aren't happy to hear this, as they don't want to have to wait to be punched perhaps to the point of no longer being able to defend themselves before they can resort to their primary defensive tool--usually a gun--to defend themselves.
