Not true.  If it were, everyone who killed another in self defense would
be thrown in jail.  The argument asserts that the act of self defense
does not violate the 6th commandment, "Thou shalt not kill", therefore
law is one the side of the Bible.

  Besides, it's found in Christian Doctrine also... both Roman Catholic
and Protestant with references being that of Jesus himself, and Thomas
Aquinas.  Roman Catholic doctrine upholds the right and duty of self
defense. “Someone who defends his life is not guilty of murder even if
he is forced to deal his aggressor a lethal blow.” See Catechism of the
Catholic Church 1994, sections 2263-65 (citing and quoting Thomas
Aquinas).  In Protestantism also, the individual has the personal and
unalienable right to self-defense, even against government... Samuel
Rutherford, Lex, Rex [1644] 1982, pp. 159-166, 183-185 (Sprinkle
Publications edition.) Jesus advised his disciples to arm themselves in
view of likely persecution. Luke 22:36"
