When someone points a gun at a person who is not threatening anyone, he has made it clear that he is willing to take innocent life.
Unless you can read minds, you have no idea what someone is willing to do whether they're pointing a gun (real or fake) at someone or not.

Robberies often turn into shootings. I do not know the statistical incidence of this; perhaps somebody out there has some data.
In the great majority of cases, robberies DON'T turn into shootings.....Which is why people who work in retail are generally forbidden to carry guns, and are instructed to give up the cash, and why it I'd rather be involved in a hold-up with with people who understand this, as opposed to people who are convinced they have a "moral obligation" to start shooting whenever they see a gun in order to save the day.
