From chapter 10 of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee:
Mr. Tate jumped off the porch and ran to the Radley Place. He stopped in front of the dog, squatted, turned around and tapped his finger on his forehead above his left eye. “You were a little to the right, Mr. Finch,” he called. “Always was,” answered Atticus. “If I had my ‘druthers I’d take a shotgun.”
After Atticus shots the mad dog, Mr. Tate tells him that he was a little to the right. What does that mean?
Then Atticus says “If I had my ‘druthers I’d take a shotgun”. What does it mean? I'm not a native English speaker, so I'm a little confused.
