I think you and I just see it differently, and will have to leave it at that. If I intimidate someone out of attacking me, that was an offensive move. The fact that they didn't attack me is because I "Attacked" them first, with my intimidating gun.
EDIT: Also, "Weapons" are not "Defensive". Their sole purpose is to "Attack". I see defense like a wall, armor, or a moat, or some other non damaging impediment that has no offensive power.
