    Without taking the law into consideration, could you kill someone?

    If so what would be your reason behind it.

    That would depend on the circumstance of the situation, of course. But if I truly felt they deserve it, and not considering the law, I honestly think I would be able to.

    If I was in a situation that depended on my killing someone that was about to murder an innocent, defenseless person or group of people, yes I could. Likewise, if someone was about to murder me and it came down to their life or mine, yes again.

    I think almost anyone is capable of killing someone, it just depends on the circumstances.  I know that I could, if someone were harming my children or loved ones, for example.  Or if someone were attacking me and it was an issue of self-defense.  I think pre-meditated killing of someone is much different, however.  Only certain people can do that, and I don't think I'm one of them.

    I would say yes, I could in a case of legitimate defense. Otherwise no. Everybody has only one life. When I think about it, it is enough to dissuade any velleity.

    There is no way, in any aspect of the action, I could simply make a sane decision to take a life.....absolutely not.   However, I could kill in an instant, to protect/defend my child.....any child or "helpless" individual, being attacked by someone, with the intent to do serious harm or to kill.  no problem....without a second thought.
