Suppose someone is pointing a gun at you and says you’ll be fine as long as you do what they want (give me your bag, wallet, ring, car, etc.). Is that eminent danger? Are you justified in shooting them? What if they are not pointing their gun at you, but still threaten to shoot you if you don’t do what they want (lie down on the floor, open the safe, etc.). What if this happens in your house? If your life is not in danger as long you do what they want, does that justify your killing them? How do you know they would not to kill you even if you do what they want? If you know someone by their actions, and their actions are that they are attempting to rob/mug/rape you, my feeling is that they are less than trustworthy. But that’s just my feeling, not the law. Does armed coercion count as eminent danger? Does armed coercion justify killing someone? Basically, "He said he would hurt me if I didn't do X, so I killed him." get you off the hook? Is it right?
