Deadly force; civil actions..... This is a good topic for any armed professionals or CCW license holders to consider. I hope the gun owner(Gail) gets the $$$ & can move on with his life. In my state(which is mostly pro-gun/2A supporter), you can not face any civil actions or wrongful death lawsuits if you are not adjudicated or are found not guilty of using deadly force(guns). That's fair IMO. You can't be risk adverse or unsure of using a firearm if you are in a critical incident. FWIW; The family members & lawyers of Trayvon Martin got a settlement from the Sanford Florida HOA(reportedly worth over $1,000,000.00 USD ) in the George Zimmerman event(02/26/2012). The HOA quietly gave in & didn't want any protests or - media coverage. I think the Martin family lawyers saw a quick way to shake down a source related to the case for some $$$ since they(the HOA) had deep pockets. The media has put the cost of the entire Zimmerman court case at $360,000.00 to $900,000.00 depending on who you ask & what they factor in.
