Pretty good quote from John Farnam on lethal force.
“Any intentional discharge of a firearm in the direction of another person is considered an exercise in lethal force, regardless of your expressed intent, or ultimate result. When you are legally justified in employing lethal force against a threat, and have decided to do so, you are simultaneously justified in fatally wounding (killing) the person. When you are not justified in traumatically ending the offender’s life then and there, you are not justified in firing at all.”
~ John Farnam (found in an excellent online article at http://www.defense-
Pretty much covers it.
