As a concealed carrier, it’s up to us whether or not we’re going to get involved in situations such as this. Another option, of course, is to let them take what they’re after and send them on their way. For this particular story, we don’t know if the two suspects were armed, but it is generally justified in Florida to use lethal force to stop a felony robbery.
If you do make the choice to get involved with yourself and your firearm, make sure you know what you’re getting into.
The employee is not facing any charges.
