    One man was killed and another seriously wounded in a shootout inside a Miami Burger King on Tuesday, officials said.
    Police said a man wearing a ski mask walked into the store at Biscayne Boulevard and 54th Street and demanded money from a clerk.
    A customer, who has a concealed weapons permit, pulled a gun, said Officer Jeff Giordano, a Miami police spokesman.
    The customer and robber exchanged fire.
    The robber was shot dead at the scene.
    The customer, who had several gunshot wounds, was taken to Ryder Trauma Center in serious but stable condition, said Lt. Ignatius Carroll, a Miami Fire Rescue spokesman.
    At about 4 p.m., officials got several 911 calls reporting people shot inside the Burger King.

    I would not engage robber without any cover between me and the robber
    since he has ski mask on--seems to me he is a robber and not a killer

    What about option two? No cover? Wait for him to turn his back.

    is it legal to shoot an armed robber in the back during an armed robbery?

    Is he a threat to the safety of others when you pull the trigger?

    I'll bet that californian robber was completly dumbfounded when a citizen pulled out a sidearm and engaged him.

    Which one? The article in this thread happened in Florida.

    I knew a few people in CA who had CHLs. Not too many, though. You have to show "good cause" to your CLEO, kind of like getting permission for an NFA firearm. And just like an NFA stamp, the CLEO has complete discretion on whether or not you can exercise your rights. Obviously, more rural and conservative counties are pretty much shall issue. The more metropolitan, liberal counties it's still possible to get a CHL... if you contribute enough to the sheriff's campaign, if you're a friend of the sheriff, or if you're a celebrity. :crazy-1: That system is so corrupt. I could rant about it all day.
