My situation is a little different than some but im pretty sure if my hand was forced i would shoot and i think most people would. This has nothing to do with some psycho killing a bunch of people its just common sense. I may leave a puddle that would match OM's but why serve yourself up to be a victim when you could possibly save yourself or others?
Several years ago someone tried to kick in my back door and my dog stood at the door and growled but didnt bark. I was downstairs and ran up and grabbed a baseball bat because nobody was going to injure my dog if i had anything to say about it. I didnt even think about it until later that he could have had a gun and blasted me straight to hell. Now some people may have been fine with that, but thats when i decided if this wretched state ever had concealed carry id sign up. Some people may not like that, too damn bad i guess.
