Re: Self Defense: Yea or Nay
No need to do that, as I fully understand the ramifications of what using deadly force would mean. I agree with you that if I were out in public while carrying concealed, a thousand different scenarios could be unfolding in front of me. A man might appear to be a criminal, but might actually be an undercover cop, for instance. There is no ambiguity if a man with a gun breaks into my home. He is going to get shot.
