I've got no problems with it.
You mean XDtalk?
I'm not seeing the connection to GT...
Yep looked like a Springfield XD not a glock to me too
The gun they showed wasn't the gun used.... They never said what he used.
Did this guy have a CCL?
"Police said they're still investigating whether Chris will face any charges by coming to the rescue with a gun. Eyewitness News learned he has been convicted of misdemeanor marijuana possession in 2005 and was re-arrested in 2007 for a probation violation."
Err apparently he didn't have a CCL, but FLA law allows it in vehicle and also justifies his actions "stand your ground law"
Actually, I believe he used a S&W .40 when the incident occurred. They state in the video that the gun he shows them (which appears to be a subcompact XD) is a different one.
Gotta love Orlando CCW holders
ORLANDO -- Investigators called a shooting death at a car wash on Orange Blossom Trail Friday evening an act of self-defense.
Authorities said a man was washing his car, when two men approached him. One pulled out a shotgun and tried to rob him, but the man pulled out his own gun and shot one of the suspects.
The shooting victim later died at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
Authorities said the attempted robbery was just the latest in the area, and could be linked to previous crimes.
Investigators told News 13 five robberies in the last week all occurred within a one-mile radius.
Authorities confirmed the shooter had a concealed weapon's permit. They are still looking for the second robbery suspect, who fled on foot.
The shooting marked the second time in a week a citizen shot and killed a robbery suspect in Orange County in order to defend himself or someone else. A witness of a convenience store robbery in Ocoee Monday shot and killed the suspect.
It was a .40caliber glock
Different story. That was a car wash, original video was a convenience store.
Here's the video of the robbery/shooting
No shit Sherlock
I thought that was a follow up to you asking if he had a CCW
I heard it was a Glock, and the article was referring to the caliber not the actual handgun.
it's all good
WI law states I can't carry. Not saying I do, but if I was in this situation, I'd be able to do the same thing, and I would. I'd LOVE to see the state try and prosecute someone for stopping something like this. NRA and every other gun advocacy group would be behind you like bread on butter.
that being said, I hope he has a good lawyer. And I certainly wouldn't be making comments on CAMERA about it though
"I'm upset that I did take a man's life, and I feel sorry for the victim's family," he said. "But the man should not have robbed the place. If you want money, get a job."
Did they pull him out of a trailer park?
The shooter's response on the phone is EXACTLY why you say the bare minimum on the phone, and say NOTHING to police.
On the phone with the 911 operator, yelling, "911! Kangaroo!"
he doesn't want them to use his name, but doesn't mind being on camera?
I was wondering the same thing.
