I think some people need to read about the 2nd coming of Jesus because yes Jesus came to fulfill the law for us because we can't and he willingly laid his life down and rose gain to save us but there is another side of Jesus also and when he comes back he is going to open up a big can of destruction on the wicked evil people trying to harm his people.Jesus told us to own a sword as it was pointed out earlier but we have guns today so Jesus would tell us to own a gun today for defense,yes he would.Why do you think Jesus told them to go and sell what they had and buy a sword?It was for self defense the thing is we don't spread the gospel by the gun and owning one does not mean you would if you obey Christ.There is a time to kill and a time not to Ecclesiastes.
Hebrews 12:2-3 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

2nd Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,lest the light of this glorious gospel of Christ,who is the image of God,should shine unto them.

There are only 3 times that I know of when you can kill and it is not murder in the eyes of God.
1.If you are in the military carrying out orders.
2.If you are apart of law enforcement upholding the laws of the land.
3.In self defense or defense of your family,etc.

God is never OK with the killing of anyone.
That said, there are times when we may have no other choice than to take a life to save a life.
IMO, that is the only time God permits it BUT only because of our imperfect state and because He does not intervene in acts of free will.
A soldier carrying out order must be VERY CAREFUL because God does NOT excuse the killing of another when we know it is wrong.
Following order is NOT an excuse.
Same goes for an LEO, when they kill other than to save a life, then they are in the wrong.
