You know what it takes to make a shot at that range? Everything comes into play that far, humidity, elevation, temperature, wind, spindrift. There's a 6 to 10-second flight time so you have to shoot at where the target's going to be. Even the Coriolis effect, the spin of the Earth, comes into play.

So many ways this could have been de-escalated.

  1. Someone on a motorcycle pissed you off? How about you just keep driving and move on with your life?
  2. Lose your cool and make a bad choice and end up in a collision? Pull over, apologize profusely, hope they don't press charges.
  3. Make irrational decisions and end up panicking and going home instead of stopping because you think you might be in danger? Don't go outside with a gun, maybe try calling the police instead?

Update to the original press release in reference to case #21-03561:

The investigation indicates; Sara – Nicole Morales intentionally hit the motorcyclist, Andrew Derr (40 years old) in the area of the 1400 block of N. Volusia Ave. This was a minor crash, Derr was not injured or ejected from his motorcycle. Witnesses and Derr attempted to have Morales stop at the intersection of 17-92 and Wisconsin Ave while she was attempting to make a left turn. Verbal contact was made with Morales for her to pull over for the arrival of law enforcement. Morales refused and was able to make the left turn onto E. Wisconsin Ave when traffic permitted.

Morales traveled to 1052 E Wisconsin Ave. Derr and witnesses followed Morales in attempt to help identify her for law enforcement. They stopped in the roadway in front of 1052 E. Wisconsin Ave, calling 911 to have law enforcement respond to this location.

Morales went into her house and re-emerged a short time later. Morales confronted the witnesses and Derr, as they were on the phone with 911. Morales pointed a handgun at the witnesses and Derr.

Derr having a valid Florida Concealed weapons permit, drew his concealed handgun and fired multiple rounds, striking Morales. Morales’ handgun was recovered on-scene.

Derr remained on scene and has been cooperating with law enforcement from the beginning.

These facts have been established by independent interviews.

Orange City Police Department in conjunction with the States Attorney’s Office is continuing to investigate this incident.


Edit: I've learned far more about Florida gun laws than I care to after having posted this. But here's some more information if you want.

1) Pointing a gun at someone is a felony crime in Florida, punishable by imprisonment and fines. If you are undocumented or on a visitor visa and you are convicted, you can also be deported. And it makes no difference whether the gun you pointed was loaded. It is aggravated assault either way.

2) In Florida, Aggravated Assault is a third degree felony, with penalties of up to 5 years in prison or 5 years probation, and a $5,000.00 fine. The offence is harshly prosecuted throughout the State, and even first-time offenders will face a realistic possibility of prison.

3) Under Section 776.012, Florida Statutes (Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” Law), a person is justified in using deadly force (and does not have a duty to retreat) if he or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony or to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another.

I'm really surprised that anybody is even defending her at all. If you're going to intentionally hit anyone bike or vehicle and then try to flee then you can't be surprised if you get followed by the victim and witnesses who are rather upset with you.

Ultimately she could have just stayed inside and called 911 herself if she felt threatened or even kept driving, if the rider and witness were simply outside on the phone with 911 and not actively trying to break into her house then there is no reason to come back out with a gun let alone start pointing it at anybody.

If you point a gun at me, I hope (and assume) you are willing to use it. If I had a gun, I'm definitely going to use it to shoot you in this situation. Pointing a gun isn't a hey looked at me, I'm strong.. it's it's saying "I'm going to shoot you". It's lind of like like the use of sarcasm on the internet.

u/caniuserealname 7d ago

100%, theres a lot of mixed opinions on gun ownerships and uses but i think any reasonable person would agree that if someone point a gun at you they are making a direct threat against your life; and theres no reason you shouldn't be able to use lethal force to defend yourself against a threat to your life.

One of the basics of gun owning that every instructor repeats is to never point a gun loaded or unloaded at something you're not ready to kill. It's why 2nd floor gun ranges are against code in my city. To prevent a freak accident from a holstered gun discharging and killing someone on the first floor. They take that much of a precaution. This person came out aiming.

56

u/Erolyth 7d ago

If anyone ever points a gun at you assume they are about you kill you. Because plenty of them will and you giving them the benefit of the doubt won't save your life.

You can try to talk them out of it but do not assume they won't shoot you.

20

u/various_sneers 7d ago

The amount of effort to decide to kill someone and the amount of effort to pull a trigger is not congruent. The person you're sure wouldn't shoot you only needs to consider it enough to pull just enough.

u/Brokebackjohnnyjs 7d ago

I was always taught that as my basic gun safety. You NEVER point it at anyone unless you’re immediately pulling the trigger after. Its enough of a threat to show you have one, but pointing at someone is telling them that you intend to shoot them.

Tell that to the people in r/firearms who think it’s ok to break safety rules because “it was for a photo op”.

Yep. She should have stayed in her home. If she was felling unsafe, then get your gun, keep aiming to the door and call the police. If the people try to enter your house before the police arrives, then you shoot. If you go outside, you are both exposing yourself and being the agressor

112

u/Jeri-Atric 7d ago

Yeah I don't understand why people are supporting her. Seems clear to me that her actions were caused less by a fear of her safety and more about wanting them to leave, probably because she rightly assumed they were going to call the cops or already had. If she was scared she'd have the gun, sure, but four walls around you is safer than being in open air.

Yesterday I saw somebody defending her saying maybe the biker kicked her car, they do that sometimes you know as if hitting people with you car is a sane response to somebody kicking your car.

She probably wasn’t expecting anyone else to be armed but her. She probably thought she would use the gun for intimidation and nobody would get hurt. This is why letting ordinary untrained citizens have guns can turn into a shit show.

u/BloodBonesVoiceGhost 7d ago

She probably wasn’t expecting anyone else to be armed but her.

I think that this is one of the most dangerous problems of gun culture in America. Many people think that guns are a "one size fits all" solution to all of their problems... not realizing that there are more guns than people in this country and bringing your gun into the situation just begs for escalation by all parties involved!

There's that old expression, "don't bring a knife to a gunfight." Sure, absolutely true. But maybe also don't bring a gun to a fist fight (or worse, a petty squabble as I see so often), and escalate a situation to the point of lethality when it doesn't need to go that far!

63

u/garytheclone427 7d ago

Yup when I got my concealed carry I voluntarily went to a few gun training sessions before I even applied for my concealed carry. In those training sessions they all say, don't draw your gun unless you plan to kill the person you're drawing it at. So in other words, don't use it for intimidation.

I wish the US forced people to go to gun safety training before they could buy a gun or get a permit. It wouldn't stop everything but it would at least give some people pause before using their guns inappropriately. They're not toys and it's a shame so many people treat them like they are.

The crazy part to me isn't your 2a, it's the new laws like "stand your ground" law. The fact that both people brought a gun to an altercation means either can shoot the other and it's legal. You might say "that's not how that law works", and I would argue, it is exactly how it works. The fact that one person is shot means the other person can say they were threatened by the mere presence of a gun.

The culture around the "function" of an owned firearm in the US is a huge problem too.

Guns are seen as problem solvers and safety. There are literally millions of people in the US who carry a gun all day every day with them.

Many other countries allow people to own firearms, but they're not viewed with that same sort of frivolity. You can look at a place like Switzerland where tons of people have guns but they aren't viewed culturally as something you carry around every day to solve problems for you. A Swiss person would rather just give up their wallet in a mugging, an American would happily kill multiple people because the robbers "deserve it". It's a cultural problem as much as a legal one.

Not saying we need to take guns away, but seriously, can we get psych evaluations or simple questionnaires before handing people the right to have death machines in their hands.

I figured they mentioned it in the context of "this is the last person we would expect to hit-n-run and pull a gun."

Agreed. Pregnant librarians seem pretty harmless on paper. I assume I could take at least 65% of the world’s pregnant librarians in a fight. Unless of course they all came at me at the same time.

u/TheBigBangClock 7d ago

This tweet is missing a lot of key details. There was a witness at the scene of the hit and run who drove with the motorcyclist to her house. On the way, the motorcyclist called the police to notify them what was happening. When the motorcyclist and the witness arrived at her house she came out with the gun. The motorcyclist was lucky that he had a gun otherwise both he and the witness would probably be dead.

There was a similar road rage incident in Las Vegas, this lady cut a guy off, words were exchanged, she followed him to his home, once she saw were he lived she went to her home to grab her gun, went back to his place, she got off, he saw the gun, he had the quicker draw with his gun.

I've heard they actually don't, but the media laws aren't as strict as other states so we hear about the crazy stories more.

u/CartographerLumpy752 7d ago

That’s the same thing I’ve heard from my Florida friends. Basically, almost anything that happens will end up in the news in Florida with very little redacted Vs. Most other states will dumb it down a lot more while investigations are going on. You still know that something crazy happened in most places, just not in all of its glorious details.

According to the current event, the motorcyclist is not guilty. He acted in self defense.

u/RonaldWRailgun 7d ago

The biker certainly has a case here. HOWEVER it's one of those situations were you don't say a word to the police, the DA, your mom, your priest, no one UNTIL you have talked to a lawyer because it certainly is a slippery slope, and if he formulates the wrong thought, he can get in some serious trouble.

150

u/Lildyo 7d ago

That should ALWAYS be the advice anytime you’re arrested or being questioned by the police. Don’t say a thing until you’ve spoken with a lawyer, and even after that they’ll still likely advise you to not say anything

And just so it is abundantly clear, the police consider the dead woman the aggressor. Everything she did escalated the incident until she was dead. I have seen some very misleading headlines bandied about.

Is it a tragedy that someone got killed ? Yes. But MAYBE just MAYBE if you hit a complete stranger in a road rage incident and then try to flee the scene so you can go grab a gun, it's a tiny bit your fault.

Yeah this tweet makes it seem like she was innocent. Being pregnant behind the wheel of a car and intentionally trying to run over a motorcyclist is gonna piss someone off. Motorcycle and a witness followed her for a few blocks while on the phone with 911 and she decided to go to her home (dumb idea with people following you) and grab a gun not knowing the cyclist has a concealed carry permit. Sure following her home is a bit much but good luck trying to claim self-defense from her standpoint when he’s on the phone with 911 + a witness
