    then you always place yourself between your wife and everyone else?...this was a fantasy scenario like so many others...it could be a former spouse who stops to have a conversation and for some reason pops and takes a swing at her...it may be unpredictable...as is obvious in this case where the "potential threat" nodded and continued walking by...no harm no foul...if youre stepping between your wife and any potential threat all the time i'm pretty sure shes gonna be less than happy with it...

    the scenario seems more reactive of a bad situation...we dont all have crystal balls so its nt easy to determine when a potential bad situation is coming...the question was "what if"....plain and simple...

    lets just say your wife stopped and was talking to an old high school friend...the friend tweaks cause he had a crush on her and decides he wants to hurt her (i dont know)...you arent already between the 2 of them....what do you do?....

    try to use some imagination..cause if it ever does happen to you it may come as a surprise...we dont always see it coming...thats what these scenarios are about...mind exercises....

At that point I could take the chance while his attention is toward her to grab him and comence to beating the crap out of him....now my question is lol how would ne of you react....cleary his action would put my child in danger and if hit hard enough could cause some serious injury if not death to my child not to mention the injury inflicted upon my wife....could i legally take his life for being in fear of my childs life?? say he continues to attack???
    kill him.

    Within the premise of the OP, I don't really think that it matters who the threat is or the history there. If anyone were to attack my girlfriend (who is pregnant now with our little girl and due in January) I would draw and fire into the threat's center mass until the threat ended. In Florida an unborn child is considered a life where self defense or defense of another is concerned.

    Congrats RailDriver. I have my first (a boy) due in Jan as well. As far as being paranoid, this is a what if scenario part of the forum. He asked a what if question and we are giving our answers to a hypothetical situation.


    The difference between a pregnant and non pregnant lady is... If a stranger punches your significant other (not pregnant) you can't just blast him. He needs a severe beating and charges filed sure, but no deadly force. Now if your significant other is obviously pregnant, then she is beyond the point of an abortion so the law recognizes that the child as human being. (no starting anything people!) She and the child could very easily be maimed or killed by a sharp blow to the stomach. Lethal force is fully justified when anyone in my family is being threatened with murder! Especially my new buddy baby Ian...or blake. Not sure yet.

    Congrats to you as well, Macattack. Good luck with your son! I know it's a what if situation, what made you think I was implying paranoia?

    sorry...your significant other is already a life and a beating is a serious threat to her health and survival...she doesnt have to be carrying a baby to be seriously injured or killed by an attacker....

    Congrats on the new addition. My wife is going in for a c-section on the 27th with a little girl. Now to the situation. Regardless of how the "hot shot prosecutor" wants to swing it, I would most definitely be in fear of my daughter's life and would not hesitate to at very least let him get a good view of the hollow point in the chamber as I stick the barrel in his face. He can hit me all he wants but the second he lays a hand on my wife or child he's gonna be in a world of hurt.

    Not jumping at every noise or person you see is a much better approach. Being prepared, and knowing what is around you is the way I go about things. :)

    I truly believe in avoiding confrontations to every price; and I rather walk away than being in such a situation. However, this case is one of the few exceptions to that, and I will do whatever is necessary to protect her.

    Just stay home, don't leave your home, everybody is after you, your not safe, lock the doors, put the sofa up against the door, it's not safe out there.
    I think that you totally missed the point of this thread!

    IMO that was completely unnecessary.

    I am almost positive that you really misunderstood the OP.

    But not one thing happened that day!!!
    The so called bad guy didn't go after her or him for that matter.
    So why bring it up in the first place?? Like the OP said he wanted to ventalate the guy, but the guy didn't do anything to either of then. It sounded like the OP was wishing the guy would of done something just so he could pull his gun and shoot him. And the way i read into it that something could of been just looking at them!!!
