    Florida has more going for it than just beaches and Disney World.

    Not much chance this punk will be living on the taxpayers' tab. I just love a happy ending.

    Wow, a neighbor said he heard 5 shots. Musteliel must have either been seriously continuing to attack Baker, or Baker may have thought he was going for a weapon. But it could have been fairly dark at that hour, and when you're in reasonable fear of you life, you shoot until you're no longer threatened. Also, having it at two against one probably upped the fear factor for Baker.

    Ms. Martinez, Musteliel's friend said he was a "jokester", and a "good kid".

    A brief word to Martinez: Good kids don't assault strangers on the street.

    If cops can do it, why not civilians?

    He was jogging with his pistol at 1AM? This seems a fight situation and I don't know if it would be justified in GA. Would it?

    I think the time is irrelevent. Did the article mention a wallet? I do believe that he might have a case in here based on disparity of force. 2 on 1.

    Wallet, would be the robbery part. Wouldn't have to carry a license for the pistol?

    That is not the FL law as written in their licensing application instructions, it's fear of death or serious bodily harm, felony etc., just like Georgia.

    Who cares what time it is. When I was training for a half-marathon I was running late at night because it was the only time I had where I could run those kinds of distances.

    Anyway I don't carry when I am running becuase I haven't found a good method to do it. I don't like wearing a fanny pack etc... Does anyone know of a good method that I could use to carry my Kahr CW9 while running? other than in my hand of course.
