32. It is never that simple. There are loads of murky areas. But in the middle of the night

if someone comes at you, and you shout stop and they keep coming what choice do you have?

They may have a gun or a knife or simply be bigger and more predisposed to physical violence that you. What do you do? Wait it out and hope the beating stops before you die?

In any event, you shoot someone in MA (where I live) in legitimate self defense and you will likely be in court for years. But you will be alive.

The point is that you should have a legal right to defend yourself by whatever means available should the need arise.
