People I don't want to shoot?
so, you want to shoot an unarmed person who approaches you and tries to take your supplies or simply refuses to get out of the way or leave your camp?
You apparently missed the sarcasm. There's also want to shoot vs need to shoot and would shoot.
Hard to answer a vague hypothetical, but anyone who'd attempt to force entry to an armed perimeter is either unstable or a threat. So yes, if they plan to steal, being armed or not is irrelevant. Force will escalate until they stop, and then a bit more to prevent repetition. An unarmed lunatic, or a zombie, requires lethal force.
