Oh well ... if death is your ultimate freedom
you're free to die anytime you like
Which is an entirely different topic
in a self defense moment the number would drastically be reduced from 98% though. The ability for us to survive is quite staggering.

This is a very interesting point, and one that I think, while exaggerated, is very relevant.
Now, as far as true combat goes:
In a true combat situation, one will be armed. One will have some inkling that something is coming(outside of perhaps the very first incident). One will have an objective, and will enter the situation with that objective.
In a true combat situation, sure, someone can get caught off guard. But there is a difference between knowing that there is a very good chance that a firefight is coming, and having no idea, whatsoever, that it could possibly happen.
Just my .02.......

Any civil strife resulting in armed conflict within the US borders WILL be the US Military against the US Military. I assure you, the US Government is fully aware of this.. to think the Military are the elite humans of the country and us civilians are nothing be cowardly peons is ignorant to an extreme.
Just because you are scared of death and unwilling to see that to be truly free, you have to be free of fear as well, doesnt mean the rest of us are i that same boat.

I will fight. I have nothing to lose. These material things that surround me mean nothing. This paper that people use to trade with, to me, means nothing. To me, without freedom we have nothing, and thus there is nothing to lose.
