    The bottom line for me personally today in order for me to make the active decision and action to bludgeon/stab/shoot/drive over or otherwise assail some person with force and intent that could be construed as potentially lethal toward that person(s), then that person(s) will have had been in that instant of engagement akin to The Devil himself with his own immediate intent to do great offensive and otherwise inescapable imminent harm.

    Anything less than that and well if I acted/reacted with lethal force then I would be wrong to do so, and effectively the same as any other criminal animal.

    If I were member of some persons jury of peers I'd apply this same rule of condition to them as I would and do assign by our laws and my own sense of human morality to me.

    When threat of substantial bodily harm or death is imminent!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Poll is hinky, we only get one selection.


    Burglary on my or family's property
    Anytime there is an assault where someone's life is in danger or they can be greatly harmed (unable to protect oneself, knocked unconscience)
    Attempt to murder

    Pretty much in line with the state's laws. I am an advocate of deadly force to protect property as well.

    I chose assault and battery against someone else as my jump in point. It is very hard for me to pick a point in such a poll. I took assault and battery to mean that the victim is within inches of severe damage and it is not an "even" bar fight. We're talking stabbed, bludgeoned, etc. You have to remember according to the stats more LE are killed by knife and bludgeon than shot. A severe blow with a club or a kick to the head is deadly force.
