Thanks for answering anyway.

And now I will ask you why you think someone would go to jail for using a firearm LEGALLY in defense of themselves or someone else's life, but not for pounding the shit out of them with martial arts techniques, which might be construed by a county prosecutor as actively engaging and escalating a violent encounter?
Because I'm informed largely by...impression. It seems whenever someone who isn't a policeman uses deadly force, they're punished for it. But perhaps that's just because newspapers report man-bites-dog...

Cheers.
