You have casually brushed aside the most onerous consequence of a self defense shooting causing a death. Your post is yet another manifestation of how casually many gun owners think about shooting someone with intent to kill.
You do a disservice to everyone by suggesting the personal, psychological consequences of such an incident might be less than life altering.
