Uncle, and just about everyone are talking about the shooting in Florida. Just so we are clear. If you chase the guy, you aren’t standing your ground. Do anti-gunners and liberals understand basic concepts? If the police in Florida would have otherwise arrested the shooter except for the Stand Your Ground law, then they messed up. Cops make mistakes, go figure. It sounds like, however, that the case is a lot more complicated than the sound bites would have us believe. Not sure if anyone knows if this was a good or bad shoot yet.
Since I have students though, let me make sure everyone understands. You are not a cop. It is not your job to arrest people. It is not your job to chase someone down who done you wrong. If the guy is fleeing, then he is not an immediate threat and you can’t shoot him. Maybe none of that applies to the Florida situation, but CCW holders should be clear: Protect your life. If your life is not in danger or your body at risk of serious harm, you can’t use deadly force.
