No I did not assume everyone needs a cooling down period. Run out, buy a gun, go confront the person you had a fight with and try to intimidate them.

If my daughter had a stalker I would have her stay with me or I would stay at her place. The most important thing is to get out of that situation at that time. Stay at a friends house. Friends are amazing in troubled times. And call the cops.
Now I will do one of your tricks here. The stalking victim goes out, buys a gun and accidentally shoots herself when she loads the gun after getting home. Now we have a accidental shooting that could result in the stalking victims death.
