As baffling as it is, there are a vast number of people who don't posess the mindset to use deadly force in their own defense. I've asked my friend if she could take action with a firearm to prevent injury or death to her kids, and she said "I guess, I don't know...What if god tells me Im a murderer on judgement day??" Any answer other than "yes I'd definitely do ANYTHING to defend my children" means that in the heat of the moment, the person probably would NOT have the instinct and self preservation "circuitry" wired into their psyche. If one isn't prepared mentally and emotionally to deal with self defense, they probably shouldn't own a gun, anyhow. It would probably get taken from them, and become the instrument of their own death, IMHO. Just my 2cents
