Florida Man Shoots Pizza Restaurant Patron for Complaining About Slow Service, claims SYG.

The face of Concealed Weapon Licenses and Stand Your Ground:



When 49-year-old Randall White of St. Petersburg, Florida, walked in to a local Little Caesars and ordered a thin-crust vegetable pizza he didn't expect to end up getting shot in the stomach by another customer. But that's precisely what police say happened this past Sunday.

According to police spokesman Mike Puetz, White and fellow pizza shop patron Michael Jock, 52, got into an argument after White began loudly complaining that his 10-minute pie was 10 minutes overdue.

Words turned to shoving and shoving turned to Jock's legally concealed .38 Taurus Ultralight Special Revolver getting pulled out.

Jock allegedly shot White in the lower torso, and then once more in the same area after he and White started wrestling for control of the weapon.

1. I am now completely convinced

that way too many Floridians are way too stupid to own guns or have a SYG law. I think along with a background check they should administer intelligence tests before issuing gun pemit.

3. See, everybody needs to be armed. The victim should have pulled out a gun and shot back.

Then when one of them hit a bystander, another bystander could whip HIS gun out and shoot both of THEM. Etc etc etc.

THAT'S the kind of world we want to live in. Yessirree!

4. There was a shootout not a few blocks from me today

and some woman entered a mosque school in town with a sword. This is a couple of reasons why we are armed. People are just losing it.

5. "Shoving" is a first degree misdemeanor in Florida

784.03 Battery; felony battery.—

(1)(a) The offense of battery occurs when a person:
1. Actually and intentionally touches or strikes another person against the will of the other; or

2. Intentionally causes bodily harm to another person.

(b) Except as provided in subsection (2), a person who commits battery commits a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.

For purposes of this subsection, “conviction” means a determination of guilt that is the result of a plea or a trial, regardless of whether adjudication is withheld or a plea of nolo contendere is entered.

(4) A person who has been convicted of a designated misdemeanor may be sentenced as follows:
(a) For a misdemeanor of the first degree, by a definite term of imprisonment not exceeding 1 year;


Unfortunately, this stuff is not prosecuted enough, and people begin to think that physical altercations have no consequences -- until it escalates to shooting.
