      As a proud Dem, and card carrying CCP from Pa., I must say that it doesn’t make sense to me. I ALWAYS carry, and I have never had a reason to pull my Berretta. Thank goodness. I just don’t understand how this young man was killed in a justifiable shooting. We just had an older man in our city shoot and unfortunately kill one young boy and seriously wound another. It was completely justifiable, and our hearts went out to the 60+ yo man who had to defend himself in such a serious way. Yet, that is what “carry” is all about, right? I just don’t see it in Fla in this case, and it looks worrisome. I will never stop protecting myself and my family, yet I don’t want to shoot an unarmed young man. If only we could have the facts.
