Rick, I know what you are saying, and I agree with the emotion, but emotions and legal issues are not the same. I think you either miss my point or would rather ignore it; but that doesn't invalidate it.

If you are going to carry, you better know what your laws are, because your opinions can land you in prison. That point should not be arguable.

Hey Chanifire. No offense intended. In Colorado reasonable fear for life or serous bodily harm is legal self defense. I live in a very gun friendly state. She might have gotten away with shooting him here.

She was a woman with her young son. She should have killed him.

Did they arrest her? There was no threat of death or great bodily harm. Why did she pull the gun? At a minimum it would be brandishing a firearm here, but since she pointed it at him it would most likely be aggravated assault, which is a felony. This woman risks a prison term and losing her rights for a weenie wagger? Stupid.

The woman would be forced to prove that her fear of rape was "reasonable" in order for her to justify pulling the gun. "reasonable" is an argument that a jury would have to decide. You can bet that the DA would be arguing that her action was "unreasonable". Even if you or I were on the jury and would not convict her of the crime, she would have gone through a year or two of pure hell, and economic disaster to prove that she was justified in using the gun.

Look at Zimmerman. You can bet your ass he wishes he had never seen the kid he shot. He probably wishes he had taken an ass-whoopin from the kid. I would be willing to bet, that if he had a do-over, he would have never pulled the trigger and would have accepted a beating, even a severe beating, rather than to have to defend himself in court. Even if he avoids prison, which is iffy, his life has been changed forever, and not for the better.

The whole point of my response to this thread is to try to get gun owners to learn and think about what their laws are. Don't assume, don't guess, and for heavens sake, don't take the advice of folks on gun forums. The laws are different in every state. What you and I, would consider to be completly reasonable, and justifiable, might end up with you spending many long years wasted in a jail cell.
So wait, let me get this straight, you're posting legal advice on a gun forum but your point is that people shouldn't take legal advice from someone on a gun forum? Okay....

Me, personally, I would have done the same thing. I would rather take the money and the time to defend my actions than be raped and have to deal with the memory of that for the rest of my life.

Exactly! My point is know (find out) your States gun laws unless you want a long love affair with another inmate.

There is nothing in that story that suggests she broke any of her state laws, since most states require a permit to carry a concealed weapon and to get that permit you are required to take a course where they teach about local firearm, or at least mine did, she lie than likely knew the laws in her state, felt threatened and reacted accordingly.
