When I lived in FL and took the ccw class, they were very specific about when you could and couldn’t take the shot. Things may have changed since I took the class but according to the instructors lesson at that time this would NOT have been a justifiable shoot. Shooter better have deep pockets since this asshat will look for deprivation of future earning potential compensation. Just another free ride for one of king husseins sons.
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.
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.
