Why? It's pretty evident from your policies. And I don't know that a guy who wants to start shooting people should be calling anyone else a POS. If you want to see one, look in the mirror.

I thought about this a long time ago.

I played through various scenarios in my head: what would I do if someone threatened a family member or tried to harm them when I was present. I considered the moral, legal, and emotional sides of the issue. I decided that I would pull the trigger without hesitation or remorse.

I realize that I *may* suffer emotional trauma from the event for the rest of my life. I also know my family member might suffer emotional and physical trauma for the rest of their life if I do not.

I have satisfied my ethics and morals with the decision.

If I aim ever aim a gun at anyone, the only reason they are still alive is because I missed with my first shot or had a misfire.

That sentiment isn't bloodthirsty - I am just VERY careful to never aim any gun (loaded or not), at anyone, for any reason, unless I intend to shoot.
