D) Mr. Chang
whips out his shotgun
and aims it squarely at Spike, catching him off guard. At the same instant, the other two men each whip out a handgun
on the other side of the store. Now Mr. Chang has two guns
pointed at him, locked and loaded
, held by two men with little respect for human life
. He, on the other hand, has a single shotgun with no long range capability
pointed at 1 out of 3 men.
Quiz: who is going to survive in this situation?
Not to say guns aren't useful for self defense, but there are also situations where a gun is going to do you more harm than good. If 3 men come into your store, and you don't know if they are armed or not, my money says you're a lot better off cooperating than trying to fight it out in a situation where you are outnumbered. Keep in mind a gun is an active threat on someone's life, and pointing it at a someone who is trying to rob you could easily provoke them to do something stupid and irrational. It could also scare them away, so I guess it all depends on how you see the odds...
