I have a scenario and I know these scenario discussions are basically useless because there are a million different answers. You are carrying your firearm. (here in Florida you can protect others from danger as well as yourself) You are witnessing a severe brutal beating by a confirmed bad guy, no questions about who is the aggressor or who is guilty. Do you draw your firearm and shoot stopping the attack instantly or do you draw your firearm and give the guy a warning to stop. If you give a warning and tell the guy to stop or you will shoot and he starts to walk off then what do you do. We just had an incident where a hate crime was committed and when the attacker was confronted he walked to his truck and left (after several more verbal threats to all witnesses). My concern is he could have just as easily walked to his truck pulled a gun and wasted everybody. The way I see it the better option would be to shoot the bad guy instantly with no warning given. In Florida you are not required to give any warning and the danger to the victim was imminent and obvious. Letting him walk is just asking for things to go from tragedy to possible massacre. What do you guys think?
