Allow me to rephrase. Have you ever shot anyone?
The question wasnt addressed to me, but allow me to answer anyway.
Yes, I have shot and killed people.
It wasnt something I wanted to do, nor is it something I will ever forget.
I had no choice, it was purely in self-defense.
I was in the military at the time, and we were under fire.
I had to defend a marine that had been wounded, and we were in front of the rest of the platoon.
If I had not used a weapon, both of us would have been killed.
Its not something I will ever forget, and I still see the faces of the people I killed.
I hope and pray I never have to do that again.
