Father shoots, injures armed robber that ambushed family of 4

Family was just outside their family home's fence when an armed thug comes running up pointing a gun at them. Father takes cover, draws his CCW handgun, and begins shooting. The family (2 young boys and wife) cower near the front gate. The father engages in a gun fight and hits the thug in the neck. The family car was covered in bullet holes and the windows shot out.

The thug was just released from prison in January, has a long rap sheet that includes armed robbery.

Anyhow, you must see the video, it is very dramatic taken from the family homes security camera. Police say it is a quintessential Stand Your Ground case and the father will not be charged.

... and some liberals in our state what to do away with SYG and CCW laws.

The gunman, who detectives identified as Mykece Johnekins, started yelling, police said. The boys' father told police officers he ran for cover behind a white car, grabbed his concealed firearm from his waistband and started shooting.

I don't get it... SYG shouldn't have even come up- they were attacked by a gunman! There really wasn't a way to retreat. Besides, the guy actually did retreat as he sought cover.

Now if the father had seen him coming and popped him from across the road, SYG would make sense to me.

Either way, it was really nice to see the BG drop like a sack o' potatoes!

Well what the police dept. said is that it is such a clear cut case of SYG, that the father does not have to fear prosecution. It's a doctrine not necessary a statute. We actually don't have any statute named "Stand Your Ground" but rather the tenets of that legal doctrine that is embedded into the state statutes that describes when, where and how the justified use of (lethal) force can be used.

Anytime there is a shooting they investigate and so the cops are saying that this case is so well documented and defined that it clearly falls within the four corners of that doctrine without further debate.

Keep in mind that the state of Florida codified the common law known as SYG only about 10-15 years ago because we have a bunch of liberal gun hating prosecutors that would always file charges against anyone that fired a weapon. They had the belief that they would let a jury decide if it was justifiable use of force. The codified statutes sorts of puts the prosecutors, as well as any civil litigant, on notice, that they may end up having to pay all the legal fees in the case when it is a justified self-defense use of lethal force.

Totally agree. This is not SYG! It's self-defense 100%

A job well done. And, in Florida, he was lucky to have a real tree there instead of a skinny palm!

Whenever anti-gunners tell you that no ordinary citizen has a need to "pack heat" while out in public you can point them to examples like this. Unfortunately it still falls on deaf ears because they'll just explain how good guys shooting back don't outnumber the number of bad guys shooting innocent people. Either that or they'll say how the shots missed by the good guy might have struck an innocent bystander. In other words, you have to die like all the others when a thug attacks you because statistically your own life is irrelevant and you shouldn't be trusted with the means to protect yourself.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Yes, tragic that the BG is still alive. Once he went down, empty the mag in him, reload and repeat.

Good lord that could have gone wrong so many ways. I am shocked that the entire gun battle went down with the bad guy a couple feet from the mother and child. That was just scary to watch.

Clearly, that White Hispanic had it in for the Skittle Delivery guy!

Seriously, it is very scary when you see a video like this and realize how fast bad things can happen.
He saved his family.

No doubt universal background checks would have stopped that convicted felon from getting a pistol!

Now all ATF has to do is find out where he bought that pistol and get all of his info off the 4473 he filled out!!

Wait....you mean criminals don't buy guns and complete background checks??? They don't fill out a 4473???

Then universal background checks are crap that will do nothing but make commies feel good??

Sigh.....
