Their advice is absolutely correct.Originally Posted by Freedom1Man
If you intend to kill someone you are (also) committing a crime.
Shooting to stop in many cases will also kill the attacker, but that's an unfortunate side effect and should never be wished for.
(Plus, the head is a small target. Much easier to hit center mass, unless they're pretty much on top of you.)
Having now posted your views on the subject in a public forum, I hope you are never involved in a defensive shooting where your attacker dies. The cops/DA will dig up things like this & use them against you.
