It's not enough to be strong and fast, if some creep grabs my wife's butt—I must be willing to kick his butt. And likewise, one who is fit and armed must be willing, before ever getting out of bed, to shoot the bad guy wherever he is found, without a moment's fear-born hesitation. A tactical pause is appropriate; a fearful hesitation is not.

Very well said.
