As the title states: Man robs a store with a hypodermic needle and even goes so far as to stab someone (Another store patron) with it during the robbery attempt
Although that is a "forceable felony" is that a justifiable shooting were he to lunge at you? Curious to see what you think
2A is not negotiable
Think about this. Where did that needle come from? Did six other junkies just shoot up with it? Did the BG find it in a container of medical waste?
I'm not taking that chance!
*WARNING - I may or may not know what I am talking about.
RR, that is a scary thought. That is like assuming that a BG has a revolver and wondering is the next chamber empty or loaded. I don't mean to sound like a SA but not a chance i'd personaly be willing to take.
I would treat it the same way as a knife.

when I lived in CA this happened some years back similar as said above he threatened it to have HIV+ blood in it I think I would shoot if it were me...
I would defiantly draw on him, and if he kept coming, then it would be his funeral.
Since you're posting from FL, it's also worth noting that FL law allows the use of deadly force to stop any forcible felony, so you'd be equally justified in this scenario even if he didn't attack you personally.

Come at me with a needle as a weapon and there is definitely going to be some 'drawing'...it's called a 'chalk outline'.

Treat it like any other lethal weapon.

How stupid---bring a needle to a gun fight.
An ounce of lead is worth 200lbs of cop.
Any number of common household chemicals can be very toxic if injected. I would treat the syringe as a deadly weapon and act accordingly. This would be an immediate threat to life.
