    Florida self-defense law ...

    Here an article in today's Daytona Beach News-Journal. http://www.news-journalonline.com/Ne...SH01081406.htm

    Not surprisingly, examples clearly chosen to advance her opinion. Can't explain why the police didn't press charges in some of these cases but she clearly draws the conclusion that it's all the fault of the Florida law ...

    Her conclusion, by the way, ("the fatal flaw") is interesting. It has nothing to do with the examples, it has to do with the fact that the law "only works for people who carry guns" - I guess she's bemoaning the fact that only people with guns can shoot people :)

    Sounds like a lot missing to those little examples she cited. I also don't understand what her point is concerning the "fatal flaw". Driving laws for example are only aimed at those people that drive. Does that somehow make those that don't, "sitting ducks"? If you want to be included in that law, get a car and a license.

    · A man shot his neighbor in a dispute over how many bags of garbage he took out. The victim had no weapon. Police did not press charges.
    This one I saw mentioned by an anti-gunner in the Usenet. This person made the mistake of naming names and I did a bit of research and came out with the events.


    CLEARWATER – Deputies are investigating a neighborhood dispute that
    resulted in a shooting Monday.

    Deputies were dispatched to 1995 Meadow Drive after receiving a call
    from the victim’s wife, reporting her husband had been shot by their
    neighbor, reports said.

    Kenneth Allen told deputies he arrived at his residence about 4:30
    p.m., and he heard loud music coming from the residence of his
    neighbor, Jason Rosenbloom.

    Shortly after entering his home, Allen reported that Rosenbloom banged
    on his front door. Allen went to the door and exchanged words with
    Rosenbloom.

    Allen told deputies he went to a room and retrieved a 9mm
    semi-automatic handgun, returned to the front door and opened the
    door. Rosenbloom then came towards Allen in what Allen told deputies
    was a threatening manner, reports said.

    Allen then told deputies he fired two rounds at Rosenbloom as he began
    to enter his residence. According to Allen, Rosenbloom fell to the
    ground after being shot, then got up and walked to his home.
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
