Killing an "unarmed" person is:
a) always legally justified
b) sometimes legally justified
c) never legally justified
How quaint and simplistic. How about I modify the quiz to reflect my comment:Shooting
an unarmed person is:
a) always legally justified.
b) justified if you are getting beat up
c) sometimes legally justified
d) justified if you are about to be killed
e) justified if you "think" someone might hurt you
f) never legally justified
Get my point there D-man. If you think it is as simple as your quiz then you're the type of concealed carry person that scares me. Just so you know, I really didn't care much about the concealed carry law. I'm not a gun person myself and I think their proliferation in society is frightening, but I knew these laws were inevitable. The problem I have is with laws like the castle doctrine and this one in Florida. THAT is what is turning us into a vigilante society. Neighborhood watch programs are great, but when those individuals start carrying guns around and try to take the law into their own hands, then we have a problem. The cops told Zimmerman to back off and he didn't. That's all he needed to do and this whole mess would be behind us. Instead, HE created an altercation, got into a fight, and decided that he needed to kill someone because he may have been getting beat up.
In the end, we'll have to let the courts decide and I'm glad. Unfortunately because of the media whores out there this case has already been decided by certain groups and individuals. The outcome will seem unfair or fueled by activism from whomever disagrees with the ruling.
D-Man, I assume you would accept whatever verdict is handed down. I am willing to.
