This issue is being developed in our federal courts, and the trend seems to be answering my hypothetical question with a resounding "Never". But these cases are still being argued, and for some time now, we will not have a definitive answer as to whether law abiding citizens must sacrifice their right to personal security in order to remain law abiding.
