Response to needledriver (Reply #42)

43. The only time a use of deadly force is ever justified, by any person, state or otherwise,

 

is when it is to immediately prevent a person from killing someone.

Your point is silly. You are suggesting that the only morally pure position is all or none and you fail to see the difference between stopping a gunman on a rampage to save lives and executing someone who has been neutralized and incapacitated for decades in an act of vengeance.
