Most crime is stopped by simply pointing a firearm at a criminal. For the non nut jobs, they don't want to die and most don't want to kill someone. If I am in that situation, my first thought is protecting my family. That criminal better freeze because I am not positive he has a weapon on him and if so, won't use it.
