    You should have asked if it was an innocent person. I could guarantee it would be far less

    If someone murdered someone I love in front of me, I suppose in the heat of the moment, I might. It would have to be someone I extremely care for though, like a close family member.

    Edit: Actually.... two wrongs don't make a right? I would like to believe that I wouldn't in any situation, except accidentally because I was defending myself.
    Stop it Yuno, we all know what you're like.

    Anyone can take a life. I just wouldn't, in pretty much any feasible circumstance I can think of.

    edit: well I guess there is the matter of self-defence but you know

    I honestly think I couldn't
    If my life was under threat then I'd pick a knife up or something act like I could kill them
    but I never could

    I have no problem with killing if I thought that they deserved it, or if it was necessary.

    I probably wouldn't be able to hurt anyone innocent though.

    yeah

    neck stabbing makes me cringe a bit though so id probably avoid them. I'd also prefer not to burn someone to death as that would be cruel

    In my head I've killed people many times over

    But in real life, no matter what the person did, I don't think I could actually physically kill someone.

    If it were to save several others then yes (unless those people were known criminals).

    I think I could but only if I have the choice of killing or me or a family member being killed.

    If I saw someone abuse an animal then yes, I could. I would probably only mean to hurt them and not kill them but wouldn't be able to stop myself if it were my own pets they harmed.

    I have no idea as I have never tried to. In a fit of rage I probably could in extreme circumstances. There are certain acts I find so abhorrent that I would emotionally wish to seek revenge for them - if I wouldn't forfeit my freedom - even if they didn't affect me personally but I wouldn't. Ultimately I could only see it happening as a product of extreme rage and even then it would be an accident.

    Surprised so many people wouldn't defend their families with lethal force if they were attacked.
