    CAN YOU?

    Can you stand there with a gun looking another person in the eye and kill them?

    In you very soul and before GOD...if your life were not in danger could you actually stand there and shoot to kill another human being?

    WOULD YOU?

    What would your mother do?

    What would Jesus, Mary and Joseph do?

    Technically you can defend yourself.... you can argue that you were there  doing something and you were surprised and scared for your life. In reality the legal system will say that you set up a situation so that you could sit in waiting and shoot someone for fun.

    Regardless what will happen is the police will show up.  And, if you are lucky, they will not shoot you.

    They will take you in and ask you a lot of questions.

    The family of the person you shot will ask a lot of questions.

    You will have to hire a lawyer.

    Lawyers cost money.

    You will have to spend a lot of your time dealing with the police and the legal system...and probably your insurance company.

    At the end of it all, even if you are not charged with a crime, you will wind up spending thousands of dollars on a lawyer, you will wind up having to pay people to run the business while you are dealing with the fallout of the shooting so that is extra money...and many of your customers will become superstitious about the fact someone was killed there...and they will stay away.

    So the question really is...how much money do you have and how good is your aim...because someone starting to break in...can run away...and if you shoot them in the back..that is MURDER.

    A smart and intelligent human being would be take the most valuable stuff home, set the alarm, and claim insurance for the damages once everything is settled.

    Are you a smart and intelligent Human?

    Also, if your business was burned down because the mayor told the police to run away until Trump made him look like fool, would it be too late to rebuild in Minneapolis again?
