Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Disappointing having moved the slider bar up to detailed response I am left wondering what a minimal response would have been. Although, I guess from what you say the law is pretty unequivocal on the matter. Your information seems contradictory or confused. Issuing a challenge would be a potential breach of the peace, but if the challenge where accepted that would escalate it for the challenger to charges of conspiracy to murder or serious assault. If the challenge being accepted makes both parties liable to conspiracy to murder, how can issuing the challenge not be more serious than breach of the peace. In short you have provided me no more than I could have guessed and left me more confused than I was before I asked. You have not also address even if to just dismiss scots law, the issue of a self defence claim. Also, the representative I was given to understand would answer my enquiry was JC, perhaps I was reading the site wrong, but it looked like JC was tendering to answer and it was my understanding on having read her qualifications I was paying her. Lastly, I will not hit the unsatisfied link or attempt to not pay, but my rating reflects my comments above.
I suppose, that you will not reply to this as I've had my reply. I merely explain why I have negatively rated you.
Ok, this answer is far more satisfactory, I will rate accordingly. Although, the actual challenge stipulates pistols or swords but this a cosmetic distinction. I understand the conspiracy issue, my confusion was the escalation from breach of the peace, to conspiracy to murder. But from you answer I kind of get that in accepting it escalates from a threat to an undertaking to commit an actual offence if I read what your saying correctly. As to bizarre, it is, but that's the internet for you. A well know person has indeed issued a challenge to duel with sword or pistol any member of a group, I was curious if calling him out to have him no doubt decline would end up in me being charged with a crime this you have answered.
Thank you for clarifing and please disregard the reply to your bot.
