Agreed except for the warning shot, that is wasted ammunition. I have had a mountain lion cross in front of me no more that 50 yards away and she paid no more attention to me than if I had been another cholla plant. Half that distance from black bears, I just stand very still and they do what they do and then move along. Not unless they are looking at me and coming towards me would I ever consider using my gun.
Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern will, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
