Naturally, the exercise of your Natural Right to Self Defense may mean someone else doesn't survive. Any thoughtful person considering one of our Self Defense Shooting Classes should settle this matter in their own mind before attending.

Sometimes students have expressed concerns regarding the moral aspects of shooting someone, even in Self Defense. We've had folks ask "How does the possibility of killing someone square with the Bible's teachings." If you're struggling with this question, I think this article from Gun Owners of America will help.
