So the guy who got shot was sending threatening text messages to a woman at the house. They don’t say, but it sounds like she was staying with friends or family to get away from this asshole, and he objected. What he didn’t take into account is that Floridians are almost as heavily armed as Texans.
The homeowner was armed, when the asshole forced his way in through he back door.
The homeowner tried to push Martin back out the door when Martin reportedly raised a large kitchen-style knife in a stabbing motion, the news release said.
The homeowner fired one round from a handgun that struck Martin in the chest, ending the attack, the sheriff said.
Sheriff’s deputies found him a short distance from the back door, and he was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Self-defense, and defense of family, is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
