What this means is that while you, me or Colovion might have the composure to exercise some restraint before jumping straight to the deadly force option, Nervous Nellie isn't going to see it that way. Faced with the binary decisionmaking that occurs during an adrenaline-fueled fight-or-flight response (being a result of any threat, real or imagined), they are more prone to react in the manner that is quickest and offers the most certain conclusion.

Possibly, but the alternative is disarming would-be victims and giving the bad guys free reign over them ala pre-SCOTUS cases (Heller and McDonald) Washington D.C. and Chicago. Pick your poison, a few nervous nellies or a crime wave from undeterred thugs. I'd rather inconvenience the latter.
