Yes.

Biblically, it is clear that killing is to be avoided if possible, but it is most certainly justifiable under the right circumstances.

Here is a hypothetical. A madman with an Uzi walks into a school and takes aim at a child. You are there, and you have your .45. Is it more moral to shoot him, or to not shoot him?

As for me, I don't want to. However, I am fully prepared to take the life of another human being. One important thing; when I consider the possibility that I may have to, I force myself to not dehumanize them. I hope that, in the event that I must use lethal force, that will prevent me from being numb to the act.
