I have never been crystal clear on what is meant by the qualifier "gross" when referring to bodily harm/death, and I think that the disparity alone should be reason enough to defend myself but, that's just me. Does this mean that the harm has to be to a certain extent or some such thing? If so, I think that is ridiculous as well. Why should I have to be hurt at all before defending myself, why should I have to wait until a certain point is reached? By that time it may be too late to take effective action as the mob may be too close, moving too quickly, etc.
    Simply put, you have to have a "reasonable" fear of significant injury. For example, you wouldn't be "reasonable" in the eyes of most people (your jury) if you pulled a gun on a 6-year old who kicked you. There is no hard-and-fast answer to this question. Use good judgement, get training, and keep a cool head. Sometimes, taking a punch is better than the legal hassle of pulling a weapon.

    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
