Concealed Carry and “Stand Your Ground” in Florida: Man defends his wife and two sons from an armed gunman. Allapattah Shootout Investigated as ‘Stand Your Ground’ Case.

Surveillance video shows the couple and their two sons, 1 and 3 years old, arriving at their house near NW 27th Avenue when a man with a gun approaches them from behind.

Both take cover and trade shots. The would-be bad-guy was shot once in the throat. He is a felon in possession of a firearm. He got out of prison in January.

Self-defense is a human-right, and in Florida, it is your legal right.

  1. This was almost comedy with two people running around a car and a tree.
    And the wife and kids are just standing there.
    Marksmanship matters.
    Not a huge fan of “Stand your ground” laws but since the family was under immediate assault, how would stand your ground even enter in?
    A felon with a gun, what, did he think he was in Chicago?


    • If you were overweight with one bad knee, and some deformed bones in your feet, making it impossible to run, you might like stand-your-ground a little more. I can’t run away. Or not very effectively anyway. So I will need to stand. But that won’t stop the local DA saying I should have just run away.

      Also, no politician ever voted for the requirement that law-abiding citizens have to run away from thugs. That was created by case law because prosecutors HATE self-defense, and judges are perfectly willing to go down that path.

      The only state where I’m pretty sure the lawyers never got “duty to retreat” as part of case law is in Washington State, which has one of the oldest laws on concealed carry, predating Florida by decades.
