You don't have to run away, you can stand your ground and defend yourself when confronted.

You just have to be careful that you don't go out there with blazing guns defending property.
Well, in my disabled condition, i won`t have a choice to run away. So there`s that, lol.
All i can say is, the criminal better be quicker with their weapon than i am. :giggle:

Florida is castle doctrine:

The outcome in this stuation would have been the same in California where the Castle doctrine applies. You have a right to use deadly force when people break into your home and you can reasonably believe that you face severe bodily harm or death. Certainly seems the case here, where one of the intruders managed to get a hold of the homeowner's handgun after he accidentally dropped it.

And you don't have to ... if you're old or disabled and you can't run away from someone pointing a gun at you, you have the right to defend yourself. There are wrinkles to this scenario, eg where you started an argument with the guy that escalated to a point where he draws his gun. In case you're the aggressor, at least here in California.

Too many idiots with guns.

Can somebody please invent a device that keeps guns out of the hands of idiots like these.

It's a bowley alley, not a gun range. And by the way even at a gun range you're not supposed to shoot at each other, just at the targets down range.

Governor Nuisance is on it, no worries. I`m sure he will make up some more new laws out there in Calipornia.

One already exists. It's called Training. It doesn't stop all the dimwits that shouldn't have firearms but unlike creating more useless laws and regulations it does thin them out.

They should make completion of at least basic training a requirement before you can buy a gun.

I can hear y'all, "oh yeah sure new gun laws bring it on". But the written test in California is a joke, and so is the mandatory 'training' the FFL dealer is required to give you before you can take the gun home. It's a piece of paper that the gun dealer has to fill out under the law.

Another public shooting but cut short by an armed citizen. (y)
I'm curious to see how this gets covered and reported. Not the dead dog meat perp and his mental condition, motives, yadda, yadda but the citizen.
Was he trained or did he just get in a lucky shot or two, how many times was he on target, what was he shooting, etc.?
Not to make a hero out of the person but to show that in some instances "a good guy with a gun can indeed stop a bad guy with a gun".
Also use this incident to encourage all firearm owners to get or continue their firearms training.
Imagine... T-shirts, posters, decals; A target with a tight group on the bullseye. Above "Firearms Training" below "Do It - It Works" :)

I believe in the basic meaning and context of "Gun Control" as it applies to responsible firearm owners; controlling my firearms.
To me this means always using, maintaining, and storing them effectively, competently, securely, and safely.
It's what I was taught as a child as part of the Responsibility of being a firearm owner and user and my hillbilly father and ancestors would haunt me if I strayed from my learnins. :oops:

I once went to what I thought was a nice traing class before a CCW could be issued.
Instructor covered striker fire pistols and revolvers of several makes. Gun laws were discussed and debated for three different states. Disassembly and cleaning in moderate detail too.
The live fire portion of the class was the only joke.

In the end I do not think this class was suited for newbies in the room. How much should a new guy need? Typically he shoots with some friends that help him along to hone his shooting skills and yell @ him all day to keep his finger off the trigger!

If we had to qualify in some capacity only 3 of us in the class of 30 would have passed, the instructor, myself, and one other attendee.

I am an advocate of firearm safety being taught in the schools. Many of our youth engage in hunting and those that don't should know how to approach simple situations they may encounter.

I also feel that any politician voting on or creating/compiling any gun laws should also have to complete some greatly detailed form of training. They don't understand guns in any capacity, terminology is always phucked up, and all this public safety sh!t is for the birds!
