FL man pulls gun and shoots would be robbers.
Story here.

Good for him.

Yet another reason why civilians should be armed.

So we just let the bad guys do what they want?

If armed civilians end up shooting at teenagers and society looks on and approves then there is something *fucked up* going on. I understand the need for self defense. But if he'd succeeded in killing one of them it would still have been a tragedy.

If armed civilians are such a great idea, how did they get their hands on a gun?


Fuck. And now I'm gonna get stuck in some debate I know fuck all about. These are my *emotions* on reading this story... so don't expect rational argument Wink

Actually reading the story again it's not stated that he attempted to kill. I imagine, having a weapon permit and all, that if he *had* been aiming to kill he would have done so. As such, I'm gonna assume that he intended to scare them off which he did do. So kudos to him.

vigilante justice is not the answer for the police force. I can see defending your home but just shooting a robber and you are not the owner of the business NO WAY! This is not the old west.

History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a
free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance, of which their
political as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their
own purpose. ~ Thomas Jefferson

Thumbsup

When a gun is fired in a public place it's a danger to everybody. It's hard to say where the traveling bullet exiting one of the robbers bodies could've traveled. Who else could've been wounded, and whose life may have been ended. Richocets themselves are quite a problem unless you have the correct ammo.

Lastly he's lucky none of the robbers died.

It's very irresponsible.

However I'm glad the robbers were brought to justice.
