The good ol' second amendment

APOLLO BEACH (FOX 13) - One man is dead and the neighbor that did the shooting is not facing charges – at least for now.

It happened around 6 p.m. in Apollo Beach, and authorities tell us it could possibly involve a Stand Your Ground argument.

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, David Cockerham, 67, was out walking his dog along Silver Falls Drive when neighbor John Gallik, 52, confronted him.

"Some kind of altercation broke loose and resulted in one man being shot and killed," said Hillsborough Sheriff's spokesman Larry McKinnon.

Detectives say the dog was startled and knocked over a sign blocking the sidewalk, and then Gallik got angry, yelling profanities, charging Cockerham and pulling out a knife. According to detectives, Cockerham took a step backward to create a distance between the two.

However, Gallik attacked him and threatened to cut his throat, detectives say. When Gallik charged him, detectives say Cockerham opened fire with a .38 caliber revolver that was in his pocket. Detectives say

Gallik was shot once and died at the scene. More here:

Ack, what a shame.  It sounds to me like this Gallik guy had so much more bullying and bothering in his future ... all that potential ... his whole menacing legacy ... has now been stopped by a cruel, gun-totin' conservative.
