The words "lifting a hand in return" does NOT mean "engage in violence".
This is the second time in this conversation you have had a problem with the meaning of vocabulary or idiom. I do not mind if you use words in a way which is "incorrect" according to the dictionary but if you are not even going to make an effort to understand common usage, and your "misunderstandings" occur at rhetorically convenient points in a discussion, and even "misunderstand" when I pre-emptively provide the correct interpretation for you, then I can only conclude you are discussing in bad faith. Describing people who were using weapons to be "unarmed" was probably a conscious lie in hindsight, and I was incorrect to give you the benefit of the doubt.
I do not think further conversation will be beneficial.
