    1.  deadly force: when it's physical, fists, it is not the same as a gun.  You can usually tell when you are beating someone to death and stop.  Gun not the same.

    2.  How do we determine aggression?  If Z was a neighborhood watchman or just an ordinary citizen, didn't he have a right to follow someone he suspected?   Where does that leave T, who can't tell us what he feared or what actually happened?

    The problem is the law that allows ordinary people to carry guns in public.  Period.  It guarantees more of these incidents.

    He who would trade liberty for security deserves great customer service.
