Just my way of answering the question.

The only intelligent answer on this group is "Maybe yes and maybe no. It would depend upon the circumstances."
QUESTION AT TRIAL: Didn't you recently state in a message posted to a web site that you would never under any circumstances whatsoever fire a warning shot at a perceived assailant, and that when you drew your gun you always would to shoot to kill?
ANSWER: I did state that I would not fire a warning shot at my assailant as I do not know where the bullet will end up. I stated that I drew my weapon to stop the threat. If the assailant leaves the scene upon weapon presentation, excellent. If not, I have to take action to protect myself and stop the threat. I never mentioned shooting to kill.
