If you have moments like that, Auntie, you shouldn't have a gun. I have been shooting for 64 years, since I was six years old and received instructions from my grandfather. I have never even considered shooting anyone until this week when I interrupted someone trying to break into my car. When he saw my gun (legal concealed carry), he took off running. I found it very interesting that, because of my reading, training and mental review of those kind of situations, I was very calm and had the situation fully under control.
Not all of us snap or lose touch with our moral code.
