Can a Christian defend himself and others with deadly force, if necessary?


Can a Christian get a concealed weapons permit and carry a hand gun regularly with the intention of using it to defend himself, his family of the public at large from an attacker?

I guess the more general question is: can a Christian defend himself, his family or is neighbor to the point of using deadly force?


God does allow for the defense of self and others. See "A Bible and a Gun" and "Vengeance" for details.
