    This gentleman could be the "poster child" for concealed carry. His attitude, his camera presence and his story all ring true. The experience he relates is compelling and cautionary. His reaction to the event from the first threat to the aftermath is exemplary. And please note that the thugs who came for him got their firearm NOT from a gun show or private sale or even from a house burglary. It was (as the man tells it) stolen from police possession!

    Thanks for posting this. It's super.

    Piazza must be hard up. He sent this out a year or two ago (back whenever it happened).
    Considering yourself to be defenseless is the first administrative step to becoming a victim.

    Calous as it may sound.....that man did all of us a huge favor

    Great story but I would not have conducted an interview. Anyone have any follow-up on the landlord?

    He sounds like a very humble guy, but I am sure he feels no regrets for the BG's. But you need to play the game so the DA will not have an excuse to come after you.

    He talked to the cops? Didn't call for a lawyer??? Everything I've read on here is to not talk to them.... What's everyone's take on this?

    They claim its best to take 24 hours prior to making a statement and get a lawyer.

    Florida Firearms -- Law, Use And Ownership Book Info | Gutmacher

    A lawyer in Florida wrote this book. I have a copy and read it twice so far and I still enjoy looking up the laws online.
