What would you do?

Interesting scenarios referred to by Tim Montgomerie (The Times):

Without wishing to take sides, I think Israel's response is understandable.

Imagine you are alone in a remote house, sleeping in bed on a dark night. 

You are awakened by sounds from below - horrible sounds as if your house was being trashed.

You then hear more than one person starting to come upstairs.

As a farmer you legally own a shotgun.

You go out onto the landing and see several men with long knives coming up the stairs towards you - when they see you hesitate they rush forward.

What would you do?

Almost certainly you would use the shotgun, even though at that particular moment you might have a more powerful weapon than the robbers.
