What Zimmerman is going through is a good example of how a good or a bad shooting can turn a life upside down, but I wouldn't call it a good shoot. I won't say more as on a general discussion thread of this forum we have been asked not to discuss the case.

As for "ill intent"... I wouldn't consider such a move...

As for the Seminole County Fl. Case... Mods have made it clear that the discussions are off the table until more facts are provided for a fair more informed discussion...

I expect we will see it opened for discussion soon...

As for making a mistake... SURE I HAVE!!! And one involved "lethal Force"... I was incorrectly informed by an officer that FLA allows a citizen to use force to detain a "felon"... So I held the crack dealer at knife point...

Later I was to learn that it requires the BG to have committed and "AGGRAVATED FELONY"... Lucky for me, the officer didn't even ask my name and told me NOT to listen to an officer's definition of law and to reseach it in the statutes first... which I immediately did...

first (hogdogs) i would like to apologize for calling you hotdog was honest mistake.
second on the point of where i get off with the shoot first ask question second is indeed my business not anybody else. i do not have do defend why i do what i do in my HOME!.
i would think a libertarian would know and believe in that.

lastly no i do not worry about shooting some one who mistakenly entering my home in the we-hours EVERYONE I KNOW, KNOW I HAVE LOTS OF GUNS AND AM NOT AFRAID TO USE THEM. they also know my house is not a hang out spot as i am very anti-social at 3am.

Texas has a pretty strong castle doctrine, but be ready to defend youself if you shoot the wrong guy.
