mywarningguninpantsJust as expected, the Milton, Florida resident took the WARNING that I put on twitter because of a threat, he himself implied in regards to a “visit” he claimed I was going to get. The visit, by the way was not going to be by law enforcement. The threat he made in his post to me makes it quite clear what the intent of that visit would be. For someone who lives in the state of Florida, this confused young man does not understand two laws that protect my rights to defend my life and property.

The first law is what is known as Florida’s Castle Doctrine:

This law reads in part:

The Florida “Castle Doctrine” law basically does three things:

One: It establishes, in law, the presumption that a criminal who forcibly enters or intrudes into your home or occupied vehicle is there to cause death or great bodily harm, therefore a person may use any manner of force, including deadly force, against that person.

Two: It removes the “duty to retreat” if you are attacked in any place you have a right to be. You no longer have to turn your back on a criminal and try to run when attacked. Instead, you may stand your ground and fight back, meeting force with force, including deadly force, if you reasonably believe it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm to yourself or others. [This is an American right repeatedly recognized in Supreme Court gun cases.]

Three: It provides that persons using force authorized by law shall not be prosecuted for using such force.

It also prohibits criminals and their families from suing victims for injuring or killing the criminals who have attacked them.


The second Florida law is known as “The stand your ground” law: http: //

There was a prominent case in Sanford, Florida that demonstrates how this law can be applied: The State of Florida v George Zimmerman. In this trial, a neighborhood watch volunteer was acquitted of all charges resulting in the shooting death of  a teenager.

What makes the Stand your ground different than the Castle Doctrine is that the potential victim does not have to be in his car or residence, nor does the potential victim have to attempt to flee. The Florida law gives the potential victim the right to “stand his ground” and confront the attacker and use deadly force in the defense of his person or property.

Now what IS interesting is the statement that @Popsbackup made after I posted the photo of my gun. That statement can be taken two ways. Since we were taking about guns, what Pops was implying is quite clear.

I think if the reader studies the images and the statements, one will get a clear impression that it is Pops that made the threat and not me.

Stay tuned
