"Texas Question"

Question: You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two
small children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife
comes around the corner and is running at you while screaming
obscenities. In your hand is a Glock 22 (.40) and you are an expert shot.

You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?


Liberal Answer:

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the man
look poor or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that is
inspiring him to attack?

Could we run away? What does my wife think?

What about the kids?

Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of
his hand?

What does the law say about this situation?

Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?

Does he definitely want to kill me or would he just be content to wound
me?

If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while
he was stabbing me?

This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for a
few days to try to come to a conclusion.


Conservative Answer:

BANG!
