Even if you use it for self defense, you'd be accused of illegal possession!


I didn't buy it illegally.


Ok, but if you pawned it, you dont have it anymore, no?
So you cant protect yourself with it! Or am i understanding you
wrong???


Oh yeah, it's gone, but it wasn't illegal possession while I had it. The gun shop gave me a two hour background check before they issued it. A lot of paperwork, too. It was a pain. I got to shoot it at the firing range though before I got rid of it. It was fun.

I believe there's nothing wrong with killing to defend yourself. But you don't always have to take it that far. If you give the attacker a good beating, and he's in a state where he's unable to defend himself,or if you failed to kill him but he's down for the count, it would be wrong to kill him But, it would be risky to fool around trying to disable him by blowing his knee caps off and such like. You can't take chances like that. You just kill him, no getting around it. Unless you can escape him somehow.

If a guy with a gun came to your house... he tried to shoot you but you killed him...

1.is it considered a sin?

*under the divine law, yes.

2. will you go to jail?

*under the law of man, no.

3. if you will, does it mean you will die instead?

* dont understand????

Nope it's not cause you have a good reason for it right otherwise you won't do it duh

bah, the person tried to kill me... why must i let him live for if i will let him he will come back and kill me once more? go to jail, nah he could pay fines or he can get parole and use it to his advantage. killing is the only way to defend yourself form murderers... its a fight for survival. you are a fool if you let some threat get away just like that for it will become a more serious one in the future. kill him today before he could find another chance in doing so, there's nothing wrong in that, its self defense... kill or be killed, its your life at sake. there's no time to believe in some crappy divine laws for it won't even save a single minute of your life in a such dire situation.

so what, i am fighting for my life. if i let him, he'll kill me, its better to kill him first before he can kill me. is it a sin protecting your own life? if it is then its better to be dead that committing a sin... that's ridiculous, plainly stupid. he dared to take my life, so he should be prepared in loosing his for his own foolishness.

no!!! it's your life that's on the line..and you have all the rights in the world to protect your self! yes it's another life your taking away. but if you feel that your life is more important then you have the right!! God reconizes the situation.. somewhere in Leviticus in the old testament it states an eye for an eye and then goes on to explain many situations that might happen including this one in particular!! (can't find the verse right now...might be somewhere else too)
