It would be more appropriate to ask if it is moral for a Christian to arm himself with the means to protect his family from the neighbor whom he "knows" would like to see him dead? From the position of security and arms, he could try to reach the neighbor through loving actions and understanding, etc., but there comes a time when the protection is needed. [No, I do not think we have a right to go into his house to kill him first.] I'm speaking for Larry, not Joseph. Peace.
