Prime had close to 1/2 a minute [23 seconds to be exact] from the time he grabed his gun to the time Hotrod interfered.

Which tells us that Decepticons are tough bastards
What itb tells us is that Hasbro didnt want their heros killing anyone.

Are you saying that he can order his men to kill, but can't have the conviction to carry through himself?
Trew out the whole film, not a single Decepticon was killed by asn Autobot.
Optimus pretty much said that time it was for real, and TFTM was as final a stage to do it.
His dialog contradicts his actions.

Today is a good day to die...
