Posted by dave9969: I can only speak to Florida on this
we have 2 particular laws that apply here
No. One law. 776.113.

1. Castle Doctrine which states I can use deadly force to protect my home and possessions.
Nothing about possessions.

You are presumed to have a reason for fear or peril and may protect yourself and other occupants if someone enters or tries to enter your residence unlawfully and with force.

This is further extended to my vehicle ie in a parking lot etc I can defend it and myself with deadly force legally.
You are presumed to have an immediate need to protect yourself and the occupants of your vehicle if someone tries to enter it unlawfully and with force while you are in it.

2. The "stand your ground law" ...
That's part of the same law.
