Is it fair for a robber to confine his prey
to those merchants who abhor guns,
if the robber fears for his personal safety on-the-job ?

Suppose that a robber knew that certain inhabitatants
of an area, pedestrians in the street, or businessmen
in the shops detested and rejected possession of guns.

Is it equitable to discriminate against them,
singling them out for future robberies
because the robber feared getting shot on-the-job
by armed victims??


Comment on that ??

I don't see the problem. For example, I discriminate against stores with high prices. I also discriminate against neighborhoods with what I perceive to have a high likelyhood of violence and crime.

Is it fair for a robber to discriminate in favor
of robbing someone who is wearing a gun control button ?
(for the robber's personal safety on-the-job?)

No, but the robber would probably think it was totally unfair if he got shot by someone wearing such a button. He might even sue.

OK, Roger.
I 'll take your advice. I 'm over it. I can live with robbers
preying upon anti-gun repressionists.

Yes; he 'd claim that he was fraudulently enticed to rob,
by the armed victim.
