Fw: [RC] Guns with Blanks - k s swigart

?From: Susan?
Good point but I figure a dirt bike rider doing donuts around my horse is a
weapon in itself endangering my life and my horses. I would not pull any
type of gun unless you have threatened me first.

You have missed my point.? I did not say that I do not recommend either 
carrying? a gun or defending yourself with it if you feel threatened.? Nor did 
I state?
whether the activities of the motorcyclists in the story could themselves be 
considered deadly force.

I merely stated that I cannot recommend making threats of your own with a gun? 
loaded with blanks.? You threaten somebody with a gun, you MUST be prepared 
to?completely incapacitate them with it. If you are not, you could end up very 
dead?or incapacitated yourself.??A gun loaded with blanks is not very useful 
for?completely incapacitating somebody (at least, not much more useful that a 
set of?brass knuckles--which is what _I_ would use it for if you pointed it at 
A gun loaded with blanks cannot in any reasonable way be properly considered 
a?personal protection weapon, brass knuckle-like features?aside.? Suggesting 
that somebody either carry or use one for personal protection is pure lunacy.
