Shooting in Florida

I was just thinking... here is an example where had this poor individuals friend been a trained CCW holder, he or she could've done something to prevent this. If you read the details, it looks like there would've been enough for her to react. The thug shoots and misses twice, then only succeeds in killing his victim after he runs and then slips and falls to the ground in the process.

Sadly, that's not how it ended. His friend wasn't a trained CCW holder, wasn't even dressed for CCW buy the looks of it but I like to analyze such things and think about what might have been had he been with somebody different, or what I might of done if it were me.

As I read the story, the shooter "might" have missed the first two shots and had been laying in wait to ambush and execute the victim.

Not sure how I would react to that situation and not sure how anyone, trained or not, would respond.

Plenty of mobsters, gangsters, and thugs have been murdered even if they were protected by bodyguards.

If someone wants you dead, they're probably going to find a way to do it.

Sounds like a crime of passion to me. Those types of things can go either way with the killer often times not emotionally stable or proficient enough to make a clean kill. That girl he was with who ran the other way as he was being shot may have been part of the reason why it happened in the first place.

It's sad how people get themselves into these situations. Choose a better lifestyle and use better judgment in who you pick for friends, and the chances of these type of things happening to you are greatly reduced.

While I feel forced to agree with hlg here, I think the bottom line

is you can only rely upon yourself, when the chips are down.

Almost nobody is going to be in the company of CCW friends

at all times.

Usually, IMHO, if somebody wants to kill you, you are aware of this,

at some level, to some extent.

I've seen coma victims who were a little more aware of their surroundings

than this victim...
