Another Crazy Florida Shooting

We'll let BloggingBlue tell the story of the castle doctrine gone wild:

A man in Cape Coral, Florida on Wednesday was arrested for shooting and killing an unarmed door-to-door salesman on his property.

Kenneth Bailey Roop, 52, has been charged with second-degree murder for killing 30-year-old Nicholas Rainey.

A co-worker who witnessed the shooting said Rainey had knocked on Roop’s door, but received no answer. While Rainey was walking down the drive-way, Roop pulled up in his pickup truck and asked why Rainey was at his house. Rainey explained that he was selling steak and seafood. The witness said Roop then pulled out a black handgun and shot Rainey. As Rainey lay on the ground, Roop fired another bullet into the back of his head.

Roop later told police that he shot Rainey in the head “for effect” and that he had three no trespassing signs on his property. Roop said he feared for his life.

There is no way that Castle Doctrine protects this shooter.

Let's hear Regan's Disciple defend this one.

If you can read, I posted the first comment on this blog.

There is no defense for this, nor will he be protected under Castle Doctrine or any other type of law. He may cite that as a defense, but it will certainly not work.

So to your point, I am not really sure there is anything to defend?

Are you questioning gun ownership?
