A shop owner who shot a knife-wielding robber (after firing a warning shot) was sued by the robber, claiming the store lacked “a policy regarding the safe and lawful use of firearms.”  A judge finally dismissed the suit two years after the incident.

  • The shop owner should have sued the robber for not having a publicly visible policy on safe and lawful use of edged weapons.

  • The robber is lucky to be alive to file a lawsuit. I still can’t believe it took a judge two years to throw it out. Not saying much for the legal system if it took that long!

  • This judge should be removed and the lawyer who brought the case should be tarred and feathered. This country has lost it’s ever loving mind.

  • Lawsuits like this are the reason that any concealed carry instructor will tell you to NEVER fire a warning shot and if you do fire a shot, it’d better be a shoot-to-kill aimpoint – otherwise you’ll likely face lawsuit.

  • Mark there are NO legitimate firearms instructors who teach ‘shooting to kill.’ They teach shooting to “Stop” an attack. If the attacker dies in the process of being stopped from gravely injuring or killing a victim, then thats what it took. If the attacker dies you can still be sued anyway by the attackers family. Not saying thats right just thats the way it is.

  • Lawyers who bring these lawsuits to court should suffer some sort of penalty for waisting the courts time, and our tax dollars.

  • ALL legitimate firearms instructors teach that if you shoot, you shoot to kill. Otherwise there’s no point in shooting a gun. Shooting is the last resort, and should not be used before other options, which WILL open you to lawsuits.
