If not, there should not be loaded guns in the house. Otherwise you just have a false sense of protection.
It is quite different from having a loaded gun and actually taking another persons life.
Remember, it is YOU, the person that pulled the trigger, the person that will live with its consequences for the rest of YOUR life.
Good luck and be safe
I'd much rather deal with the death of an intruder breaking into my house, than the kidnapping/death(s) of my family members. I know in my mind that I'll be able to handle a robber's death on my conscience if I know that that person was intending harm. NO PROBLEM!
