That's the truth. Rape, Kidnapping, and Murder, are all justified instances regardless of the state. However, Florida is a really liberal 2A state. If it's a business or your home and you feel threatened you can shoot, no questions asked.Since he was trying to take her daughter I believe the shooting would be justified in any state. It seems like she was going to let him go with the money. When he tried to take her daughter it was time to act. In any case one less dirtbag to worry about.
I took the Monroe County firearm safety class they offer for free, and the officer said they had heard of stories of people "playing rape." And so he basically said you'd want to be VERY sure before you take action. However, in this story, the mother of the kid was there, knew the guy had no right to take her, and mom did the right thing. I'd think twice if it wasn't my kid and I didn't know the other guy either.That's the truth. Rape, Kidnapping, and Murder, are all justified instances regardless of the state.
