FL’s stand your ground law has complete civil immunity. There will be no civil action. If there is a suit, the lawyer and the plaintiff will BOTH become pesonally liable for a bad faith filing.

Also you have an intervening supervening criminal act.

bottom line, no civil suit.

So, if he committed an irrational act I suppose the defense will be able to plea deal him out on a temporary insanity deal. But then, since he will have the “insanity” thing in his “permanent record”, he’ll be “prevented” from ever obtaining another firearm. Isn’t that what we’re being promised by the king and his court? LOL!

the law has changed SIGNIFICANTLY.

Plaintiff’s lawyers have been tort reformed out of business.

FL has stand your ground laws.

Even under the old law it would still be justified.

Many instructors have no clue about the law, nra certification or not. Some still think a bowie knife exposed on the boot is ok because it is exposed.

We should start pointing out that most of the criminals who use guns are liberals, and vote democrat.

unless “cured” and rights restored.

bottom line, the father is safe from civil liability. Also keep in mind a jury has to unanimously agree. I believe this would be a jurry of twelve.

The real issue in FL is the out of control lying prosecutors.

In Texas, if someone is leaving the scene with your property, it’s ok to shoot. I probably wouldn’t shoot over a tire or a battery, but it is within my rights as I understand it. That’s what my CHL instructor said.

I will run it to the red line but anything close to 1/4 of a tank deserves a fill-up in his view.

I know you aren't talking about a shortage of money but that was the case of my teenagers running out of gasoline. I tried to drill it into them when they called me to come get them from wherever because the tank was empty. It costs exactly the same to drive with a full tank as it does with an eighth of a tank (or a sixteenth).

If the perp had already left the premises, is it a justifiable shoot?

99% of the folks say: YES!

The manwas seen by the perp and he could have returned to kill the witness(s)

Thus: the man FEARED for his LIFE.

Justified...

Between the two, I now top off when I get near a half tank.

Now the Feds are trying to lighten cars as much as possible to make them more fuel efficient, and you are carrying around a halftank of dead weight all the time.

Shame on you and your carbonfootprint!

Nope.

Fill your trunk with sand and check your mileage.

Weight is weight; whether it is sand or gas.

Also; the slight among of gas used to actually drive INTO the gas station does add up; and many folks will NOT turn off the engine, preferring to keep the car either warm in the winter or cool in the summer.

It really is sad that democrats in Washington D.C., Connecuct, new york, and Colorado want kids & teachers to be defeaceless against criminal nut jobs while on campus.

I am just grateful that kind of irresponsibility is not acceptable in Texas where the legislators and private citizens are taking the threat seriously:

The arming of our schools and general citizenry is going to be all the more important as foreign gangs take a strong foot hold in our state.

Can you imagine if you were planing a robbery to not think about filling the gas tank in the getaway car? Then again, who’d rob a family eating at a Burger King expecting a major ‘take.’

Ah, let me think about that. No. Gee, that wasn’t so hard to decide.

Like I said, these two are not the sharpest knives in the drawer. I almost feel sorry for them. Almost.

Thanks for the clarification. So a couple of robberies over a period of a few hours equals a "crime spree" in today's journalism style guide. Good to know.
