This from the NRA, interviewing people protesting them.
SAVE THE BEST FOR LAST: This one #gun-grabbing #protestor thinks THAT YOU SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO #DEFEND YOUR LIFE if an #intruder breaks into your house. The #NRA and our 6 million members know better than this and we will never stop fighting for the #2A! #EmptyHQ #FreeIceCream pic.twitter.com/SYWWztnl6Z

This is depraved thinking. This woman actually believes that the force a person should bring to bear in a case of self defense should be proportional to what a judge would sentence a person to in a trial.
How far does this belief go?
No state allows rape to be punished with the death penalty (it should be) so is using lethal force to stop a rape is too much?
No state punishes attempted murder with the death penalty so is using lethal force to stop someone from trying but failing to kill you is too much?
In Brown vs. The US, the Supreme Court held that in matters of personal defense “detached reflection cannot be demanded in the presence of an uplifted knife.”
This woman thinks it is moral to flip this on its head.
