In what fantasy land does your scenario become the 'most likely'?

It's logically based and you've forced me to present the darker side of the debate by being all too eager to pretend that guns are magical problem solvers.
Worst case scenario/fear based conclusions is not 'logic'. Fear is very useful and we have it for a reason but it is a situational response mechanism, not an armchair q-back methodology which is how you are employing it.

What does it being 'easy' have to do w/ anything? Again, you are reasoning like a pussy. Every claim you have made here is based on what will be the easiest most passive manner to respond to the situation. Always passive, all the time = pussy.

Impossible? Your situation results in the 2nd guy nearly getting killed. 9 times out of 10 the thugs run away like bitches if the 1st fisherman opens fire. Regardless, it doesn't matter what the outcome is. Things do and will go wrong; that doesn't mean you roll over like a bitch.
