the point is that waving a gun at the clerk isn't threatening you, you have no right to be judge, jury and executionary just because you carry a CW.

I don't think the state will prosecute him, but in your (facts added) scenario I might prosecute you for shooting him in the back, reckless or negligent homicide.

this is why I eat at Wendy's

When you go into a restaurant or store or whatever and you pull a gun and try to rob the place, youre threatening every single person in there. How are any of them supposed to know what your crazy ass brain is thinking? Maybe he plans to rob the place and leave no witnesses

This thread is an excellent example of why the Drive-Thru is far superior.

So you can shoot somebody just because you are scared? That is ridiculous.

We shoulda taken all the guns from the south after we won the civil war.

A lot of you guys have taken your 2nd ammendment right and put it ahead of everyone else's human rights.

All of you that stated you would have no problem killing someone if you caught them robbing a store have serious problems.

Red states and the ignorance they breed scare the sh*t out of me.

What if the guy robbing the cashier has the gun pointed in the cashiers face and the CCW guys shoots him. How do you know that the sound waves from your gun isn't gonna cause a reactionary pull of the trigger which would cause the cashier to get scared, fall and hit her head and die of bleeding in her head. And the bullet would then ricochet and hit 2 workers in the back kitchen and when they are falling because they are dead because of the stupid CCW guy, the onions in their hands fly out and land in a customers mouth that is allergic to onions and he dies.

See! Do you understand why you can't take the law into your own hands!!

If the perp came in, pulled a gun out, but only had it pointed at the floor, I don't think its enough reason to shoot him (unless he's talking about killing everybody). If he aims it at anybody, then I think anyone would shoot him. I wouldn't kill just to save my own life, I would kill to save ANY innocent persons life. I guarantee you all that the clerk couldn't have been happier that someone killed the person that might have killed him.

It's all in how you articulate your actions. FL has a great law that if you have fear for you life you can shoot first.

That bullet is traveling well past the speed of sound. Brains will be on the back wall before he ever hears it.

And all of you liberal hippies are the reason that there are so many violent criminals being put back onto the streets to shoot cops, rob convenience stores, and rape & murder women. Congratulations on doing such a disservice to the innocent people of our society.

but i think these gung-ho gunslingers are the same ones that are later sued by the perp's family. CCW doesn't mean you have a license to kill.

isn't the golden rule is just say you feared for your life so you shot and then everything is good... lol

You're obviously not carrying the right weapon.

no. loss.

dude could have had the king's money and been out of the store without a shot being fired. why does this guy think he needs to defend burger king, and potentially get innocents killed?!?

stupid concealed gun owner IMHO. but i was not there, maybe he saved lives

It was probably NovaGrad. The warning shot must have blown the element of surprise.
