### A increased threat of being killed (by homeowners indemnified for
shooting invaders, or by automated security devices, or by constables
identifying you from security or traffic camera footage or by the hangman
after a quick trial) would be an inducement to commit more violence, rather
than back down?

How would that inducement to violence work, precisely?
