I am always amused at people who think that any aspect of life should be "fair". This misguided notion is behind the mentality that government should intervene to ensure "fair" results, and other truly dangerous ideas, IMHO. Not sure where this misguided notion originates, though I believe participation trophies are a likely culprit.

But for the sake of argument, if we define "fair" as both sides having an equal chance to prevail (let's say that being "not dead" at the end = "prevailing" for purposes of this example), then here is my math.

Start with: Defender knows the battlefield better than the attackers
Divided by: Attackers outnumber defender 3:1
Multiplied by: Defender is better armed
Subtract: Attackers get to choose the time and place of the battle

So if we carry the one, my math says that the answer is .......... "fair enough".
So that's "new math!" I finally understand... "rlol"

There is no such thing as a fair fight. Unless you are in a ring and have a referee.
My Sensei used to say: "If you think you're in a fair fight, you've already lost."

Re: Unfair to use an AR-15 against would-be burglars?

It wasn't "fair" for 3 people to break into a home in the middle of the night; it also wasn't anything close to legal! :banghead:

They got what they deserved!
