Now we get to the root of the problem. You say other people are using fictional narratives. In fact, YOU are the one using fictional narratives. All
of your ideas about using pressure points, Chuck Norris skills, talk therapy, and other ridiculous ideas to stop violent attackers are fictional, they
are based on video games, movies, or whatever else kind of BS influence you are basing your opinions on.
Where as we (the people arguing against you) base our opinions and views on REAL LIFE situations in the past. Real violent encounters, real shootings,
real stabbings, real attacks. When it comes to my safety or my life, I will base my choices on REAL things, not some movie fantasy version of defense
that you seem to have.
There are definitely situations where immediate escalation to deadly force is a bad idea, nobody is arguing against that. But those aren't the
situations we are talking about. We are talking about situations just like the original article, where someone's life is in immediate, severe danger.
In such situations, there is not a single better thing than a firearm in order to stop the threat.

Did you really just say that?
Step back, count to 10, and then re-read that. Do you see how ridiculous of a question that is now?
