Cool

requi3m, you sir, are carrying a chip on his shoulder, looking for trouble. and i will quote some your post, " I just need a legal excuse to pull the trigger" which really comes off as to me as hoping that trouble comes your way. then you would be justified in using deadly force. " a dead man tells no tales and so if you do your job right theres nobody to contradict your version of the events" really, so in a case where a person uses deadly force upon another person, LE shows up and pats you on the back, loads up the dead body and thats the end of the story? i don't think so. your problems just started! sounds like you watch too many action movies. most of the laws you stated, are probably on every states law books. a lot of the situations described, you probably wouldn't even be legal to carry a firearm in the first place. i am not going to argue law with you, or try to persuade you with reason, as that would in all likelyness, be the same as teaching pigs to sing. IMO, i hope that someone never crosses the line that i would be forced to take a human life, even someone intent on doing harm to me or my family. if given the option, i would much rather not have to live with having taken another persons life.

You got one dilemma on your hand. Damn if you do, damn if you don't.
Girlfriend might need a restraining order. You walk with a cane. An
injured veteran. If push comes to shove and your injury might cause
permanent paralysis I'd say that concealed weapon better see the
light of day. Hope it never comes to that. But that wigga might be
programmed to a video stuck up his ass of what it's like to be a
tough guy (wanna-be). Wish ya' luck.

I had a similar situation long time ago (allegedly owed money to a gangsta wannabe), the guy kept threatening me, even sent me messages with a friend of mine, I said to my friend that I didn't owed him any money so I wouldn't pay him nothing until he provided proof that I owed him any money, also told my friend that I was armed and wasn't taking sheet from nobody, the guy vanished from my life, I kept vigilant of my surroundings for 5 yrs just in case and avoided places that he might be found, never saw or heard from him again.

Most of this guys threat people that are vulnerable, and will avoid a person that is willing to defend himself, a sign of cowardliness is that he threatened the girlfriend even if the beef is with a disabled veteran, he clearly is trying to intimidate you to milk you more money.

Also your best friend isn't your friend at all, I wouldn't let my brother harass any of my friends if he is plain wrong to start with. Get new friends and God bless you for your service.

Mandy ... I see you're from San Juan, PR.
Didn't know Puerto Rico allowed firearms to be carried
by its citizens. Always thought they were against it.
And I see too that PR does not have reciprocity law with FL.

Yes my friend, you can legally carry in Puerto Rico if you got the proper permit, thou a little expensive the first time you get it, like $1,700.00 & 6-8 months if you come from scratch and $1,300.00 and about a month if you already have a firearm permit and of course you need to be a "clean citizen". The CCW permit is granted by the court in a court hearing in which you'll need to demonstrate fear for you life (easy these days, just bring a local newspaper) and be treated by the DA like a blood thirsty animal looking for trouble in every corner.

Renewals are $110.00 for CCW and around $220.00 for firearms permit every 5 yrs.

Right now there is a legislation cooking to allow reciprocity with states carry licenses, not sure if it will pass.

WOW!! I remember in '91 I decided to see Puerto Rico for all
the things I've been hearing about it for years. I went to stay for a
day or two and then return. But I stayed for three solid years!
Incredible island of beauty. The crime there was a projection of
efforts by video-worshipping punks who thought they were badass
thugs,
which made me laugh. Maybe it was because of where I
came from, where I was born and raised. Anyway the island itself
was astonishingly beautiful. But to carry there is way, way too ridiculously expensive. WOW!!

Of course, requi3m is probably technically correct.

But when you see where this is going to take you, Cory,

think about this:

Do you want this guy's blood on your hands to be a regrettable

memory which will be with you the rest of your life?

As a Marine, you must know taking a life is easy.

But how easy will living with it, when you could have

handled it differently, be?
