Would you use deadly force in this situation?

Before continuing, first watch the clip below. The important part happens after about 25 seconds into the video.




What would you do?

So, put yourself in the situation of the driver in the blue car. What would you do if this happened to you while stuck in traffic? Would you be justified in using your firearm? I've asked a lot of people and many said, yes, it would be justifiable. Their reasoning stems from the fact that the man is clearly violent and may have caused serious or fatal injury to the driver.

Is possession of a gun immoral?

 

First, a gun is an inanimate object. It has no brain, feelings, emotions or sense of morality. It cannot determine what is right or wrong.

Rather it is the HUMAN HAND and BRAIN which causes a gun to fire and hit what it's aimed at BY THE HUMAN USER. Consequently, mere possession of a gun - without doing anything else with it - cannot possibly result in anything "evil".

Now isn't that nice?  :D
