Earlier today, while I was at work, my wife called me and said police were all over the neighborhood on foot with guns and tasers drawn. From the best she could see there were cop cars at every corner. I asked her where she was and of course she is standing on the porch watching all of it and I guess the cops had not seen her. Beside telling her it was a bit silly to be outside and to get inside and lock the doors I also told her the following and that is the part which the point of my question. My instructions were for her to get my pistol and if anyone tried to break in not to give them any warning if they are coming in. Shoot them and shoot them more than once and try to place as many slugs in the center of their body mass as possible. This, of course, was after I told her to make damn sure what she was shooting at and not to shoot a cop. She is not a hysterical or highly excitable woman and for sure does not scare easily. In addition she is familiar with firing a handgun. Is there any legal repercussions in Florida for what I told her to do should someone try to break in on her. Is there any requirement for warning whatsoever if she is inside of the house? My feeling is she is in danger of her life as soon as someone tries to break in. I am not talking about any moral issues here. Simply the legal aspects. In this case there was no doubt that someone bad was on the loose from the way the police were acting.
