    Wow!
    It's really difficult to predict how one might react in a life threatening situation. I think the rational answer would be that as human animals we have self preservation instincts: In a situation in which someone was about to take my life self preservation would surely take over and I would defend my life to the end. Ultimately,  I just pray to never have to test this theory.

    I wouldn't risk an innocent person's life to save my own, but if someone breaks into my house and tries to murder me I imagine I'd do whatever it takes to stop him.

    depends. if killing someone innocent is what it took then no. but if i had to kill a bad person who would continue to do others harm then bye bye other guy.

    The question is ambiguous. If it was a "kill or be killed" situation, I'd do it without thinking.

    Yes, if I'm being attacked or threatened with murder.

    depends on who it is i must kill and how i would die if I don't
    if i had to kill a kid- no unless i have proof the kid is the antichrist...
    If the person was a killer - yea i'll gank him
    if the person is threatening me- i'd gank him in a heartbeat-there are folks out there i'd snuff out if i had a chance and knew i would not be caught- i view them as EVIL
    i'd snuff em out eASY
