I would feel scared, of course. I would also weigh the possibility of emerging the situation alive if I did nothing but finish the speech against the possibility of being ventilated if I went for my own gun. The audience would be guilty of the crime of “menacing” in Alabama, the act of pointing or displaying aggresively a gun in the presence of another person for the purpose of intimidation or coercion. As to whether or not this crime is an infringement of my rights, I would have to say that as the question is asked, no. That is, if the audience did not tell me to be quiet–that would be violating my 1st Amendment right to free speech. Or as long as they did not attempt to disarm me–that would be a violation of my 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Or so long as they did not tell me to turn out my pockets, or prevent me from leaving the stage and going wheresoever I would–4th Amendment. Or attempt to place me in irons and force me to work their crops–13th. If they did none of these things, they would not have violated any of my Constitutionally-guaranteed RIGHTS–but that wouldn’t make the act any less criminal. It’s much more controllable. Instructors have a hard time teaching accurate shooting with semi auto as it is, what do you think happens when everyone switches over to auto? if someone makes a mistake and has a negligent discharge, on semi it’s one round away. On auto, that could be quite a disaster. In reality the TC has to many things too do to worry about controlling the cannon. He must tell the driver where and how to drive, Tell the loader what to load. Tell the gunner what to shoot and where. During all this he must look for the next target, talk to other tanks in squad, HQ or Infantry. Also making battle assessments during the battle. To much for one person to do. That is why tanks crews look the following.
In mechanics load is nothing but the physical stress applied to the body. It is classified in two categories is static and the other is dynamic. The effect on the turbine itself as an isolated entity in terms of aerodynamic efficiency and generating efficiency is not the only potential concern. What effect might one have on the surrounding environment? buildings, crops, snow accumulation, ice on the blades etc. Determining the structural loading on all the components, blades, tower, and foundation as a design parameter. As far as I am aware the Regimental system is unique to the British Army and some Commonwealth forces. Soldiers who know and understand the long history of bravery and distinguished service of their regiment are prone to maintain that honoured history in their current operations. It is a force multiplier. Also the system encourages the Regimental Family tradition that results in the regiment looking after their own veterans, families, disabled, community etc. This forms an unbreakable bond between the military and the general population. All of this develops pride and character in our troops and a desire to excel. It gives the troops an incalculable edge in combat – East Yorkshire Regiment ( The Snappers) stood in line on the Heights of Abraham, short of ammo the regiment performed their normal load, aim and fire drills but only the marksmen actually had any ammo. The courage to do that won the day against a larger French force and set the mould for future actions by the Regiment – standing their ground no matter what the odds on D-Day, in Burma, and numerous other battles. The fact that he is pointing, but not shooting, means he is not sure he wants to kill you, he is sure but is scared or he is sure but doesn’t really know how. All to your advantage. Drop or put away your gun. Against armor, the VC and NVA knew that seconds after they fired, they would have to get the hell out of that area because the tank would aim their canister round right where they had fired from or worse, a Zippo tank (flame thrower tank) would fry the area and everything in it.
