Florida Man Survives Attempt On His Life With His Concealed Handgun

For one man in Florida is was a regular day. He was in his driveway unloading groceries from his car when two men attacked.

victim shoots with concealed weapon floridaAccording to WFLA, one man grabbed him while the other suspect drew his firearm and pointed it at the victim. He was able to wrestle himself loose enough to reach for and retrieve his own firearm.

He didn't hit the suspects, which makes me wonder a little about how much he trained, but it was enough to deter them and send them running.

The local law enforcement officer clearly doesn't understand a citizen's right to self-defense. He said:

It’s a dangerous situation, we don’t urge anyone to get into a firefight with criminals and especially don’t try and grab a firearm. Don’t be James Bond. This victim is very fortunate that he was not more seriously injured,” said Michael Dunn, a spokesman for the city of Temple Terrace.

I suspect Mr Dunn would have preferred if the citizen had just stood there quietly while the suspects shot him.

    at the time of this incident, self defense was in my opinion; the real thing to do. just think about it as if it was YOU who was the victim in this case. what would you have done,
    with a firearm in your close range.??? really now, you were not in his shoes.
    too bad he missed the intruders; should have shot them dead, the intruders are only
    going to strike somewhere else, and cause a scene. to all bad guys, your luck is
    running out. some day, some day——— Kenneth j

    We don’t know the threat level understood by the victim. If I understood from the perps’ words or actions that they posed a high risk of serious bodily injury to me or others then I definitely would have fought back. If the perps gave me the impression they were hesitant and their hearts weren’t in the attack and no one else was at risk of harm (i.e., family in the yard / house / coming home anytime soon) then I MIGHT have cooperated and reported it afterward. From a threat response standpoint I lean toward fighting back.
