Discuss Nanci's answer to: What is the meaning of the quote

what is the meaning of the quote "if you shoot the queen,you'd better kill her

I'm not sure, but would imagine it's a chess reference....in chess, if you go after the queen, and manage to get her, you have a MUCH better probability of winning the game...but you had better get her first shot, or she will come back and wipe out half the board....Ü   Could also be a reference back to more medieval ages where at times, there were some pretty powerful and scary queens in either charge or with great power)...  (ie: Marie Antoinette..."off with their head") of whom if you were going to make a play against for the throne, you had better make sure you had everything planned out "just right"  or you'd end up very dead!
