    Of course. If you are in a movie theater when shots ring out and you see two guys shooting at each other, don't shoot the family of four huddled together behind the chair next to you. I think that is the analogous lesson to be learned from the antis "do something".

    But what do you do about the two guys shooting? Something? Or nothing? You have to make a choice. Which one do you engage? Saying "Well, I may have shot the wrong guy, but at least I shot someone." is not going to work well in court. Or do you shoot both and hope the jury will understand that you had to "do something" or Teddy would disapprove?

    Too many variables to give a worthwhile answer.

    And of course in that situation not shooting may very well be part of the best response.

    My comments deal more with your general attitude and statements about general plans than any specific scenario.
