This would not happen in Florida. ...

A man used a revolver in self defense and was charged with criminal possession of the weapon as he hadn’t registered it.

Registration of firearms in Florida is technically illegal.

*******
The 2018 Florida Statutes

790.335 Prohibition of registration of firearms; electronic records.—
(1) LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS AND INTENT.—
(a) The Legislature finds and declares that:
1. The right of individuals to keep and bear arms is guaranteed under both the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and s. 8, Art. I of the State Constitution.
2. A list, record, or registry of legally owned firearms or law-abiding firearm owners is not a law enforcement tool and can become an instrument for profiling, harassing, or abusing law-abiding citizens based on their choice to own a firearm and exercise their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed under the United States Constitution. Further, such a list, record, or registry has the potential to fall into the wrong hands and become a shopping list for thieves.
3. A list, record, or registry of legally owned firearms or law-abiding firearm owners is not a tool for fighting terrorism, but rather is an instrument that can be used as a means to profile innocent citizens and to harass and abuse American citizens based solely on their choice to own firearms and exercise their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed under the United States Constitution.
4. Law-abiding firearm owners whose names have been illegally recorded in a list, record, or registry are entitled to redress.

Lawyer: CNY homeowner who killed 2 ‘was scared to death, thought he was going to die’
Updated May 29, 2019; Posted May 29, 2019

DEERFIELD, NY - Ronald Stolarczyk was in his kitchen when he heard people talking from what seemed to be inside his attached garage, Stolarcyk’s lawyer told Syracuse.com | The Post Standard Wednesday.

At first, the 64-year-old Oneida County man remained quiet to see if they would go away, said his lawyer, Mark Wolber. But then the homeowner heard them climbing up the stairs from the garage to his kitchen, the lawyer said.

On Tuesday, Stolarczyk picked up the handgun that was on the kitchen counter and fired three to four shots at the intruders, Wolber said. The two fell down the stairs to the bottom, he said.

Stolarczyk went down the stairs and saw one lying on the ground, and the other person had run out, Wolber said. He then called 911, he said.

The two intruders he shot and killed have been identified as Patricia Anne Talerico, 57, and Nicholas A. Talerico, 27, of Utica, according to New York State Police. The aunt and nephew were burglarizing the home at 6110 Walker Road in Deerfield when they were shot by the homeowner, police said.

Stolarczyk lived in the home with his parents, but they have both died, Wolber said. His dad owned the handgun, and Stolarczyk said he recently discovered it in the home and never registered it himself, he said.

Stolarczyk, 64, has been charged with criminal possession of a firearm, a Class E felony, police said.
