What on earth?

If some predator breaks into my house, shooting and killing him is absolutely deemed acceptable and perfectly appropriate behavior for any and all of my children who are capable of doing what needs to be done.

The situation is similar with shooting and killing an animal. There is no celebration in it, but it is a job which needs to be done and needs to be done well. And any of my children, certainly from the age of 9 or 10, are quite capable of shooting and killing.
