Having a gun while hiking in a wild environment has no relation with carrying a gun in a populated place.
So, this is it, you'd prefer to kill rather than be robbed ? To KILL ? To threaten with a GUN ? For a CAMERA !?
I just can't believe what I'm reading.... By carrying that gun you assume that you're ready to kill someone and you're comfortable with that idea ?

Quick answer, yes.

Longer answer, if they hadn't been doing something criminal like that, they'd be in no danger of getting shot by someone defending themselves. If someone is robbing me, I default to thinking I'm in fear also of my life, and given the opportunity, sure...shoot them.
And you are correct, if you carry a gun, you don't shoot to wound or brandish to scare someone, you shoot to kill. If you don't have that mindset, then, you should not carry, and you are more of a danger with gun than without in that case.
