    What happens when you walk into an internet cafe in Florida thinking the local old folks are easy pickings?

    Yup. Down here in Florida anyone is liable to be carrying.

    They will shoot your ass.

    Oh, gosh, I sure hope this isn't another case of a white guy tracking down and shooting a couple of black guys who were only out to rob a place because they're poor and victims.

    As a Floridian and a gun carrier, I loved watching that guy chase after them like that.

    One thing though, if one of those guys had died, the shooter might have been in serious trouble. Unless I am mistaken, once the perps are running off you have to back down. That last shot he took out the door was an unnecessary shot, the perps were hastily retreating, the danger was passed and ther was no reason for him to shoot. Had it been me I would have not taken that guys last two shots. But hey, it worked out and he's a hero.

    I was taught that when you draw you shoot to kill, not just because you could hurt yourself or others but because of the legal ramifications of shooting somone, in other words its better legally to kill who you draw on then to injure them because even if its in self defense the family can still sue.

    Sounds like you weren't taught by a professional

    I didn't see the shot out the door.
    But he shot until they were no longer a threat to hi or others!
