To be justified under KRS 503.080, the robbery would have to be in your home.
This is a specific issue I address in law enforcement training, because it is legal to use deadly force, under state law, to stop things like a robbery 2nd and an assault 3rd (minor assault or a bus driver, school volunteer, police, etc.) but that would be a civil rights violation under federal law, if done by a government agent.
Thanks for the reply.
Looks like the law has been changed slightly sight I got my CCW training. Exp
(felony involving the use of force, or under those circumstances permitted pursuant to KRS 503.055.)
Will continue to carry when photographing in that area. Assuming I don't get my car spray painted !
