There. I broke it down super Barney style for you. Even highlighted the pertinent parts. Could she have been arrested? Sure. Could she have even been convicted? Sure. But, by state law, she had grounds to at least standing a great chance of being acquitted of all and any charges should she have shot him dead. She would have been well within the law, to the very letter, had she shot him. Innocent people are convicted of crimes all the time. And if you can still argue the matter in the face of the very law you keep urging everyone to know, then you're simply not understanding plain written English and maybe you should go back to school.

We've been hearing "know the law, know the law, know the law".
Now, we all know the law (you're quite welcome, it really was no problem, took me about 10 seconds to look it up for y'all).
If you still wanna argue that she didn't need to shoot him, then you're stating an opinion, and no longer have a need to say "know the law".

Now, if anyone wants to debate the meaning of the law or the English language, or the accuracy of the talented Mr. Webster... That has nothing to do with the specific situation.

You have won! I was wrong. Do not, under any circumstances, make it your business to know your state laws! Make your decisions based on emotion. Pull your gun when ever you think it is reasonable. Bring your dictionary to your trial. You are my hero!

Spoken like a true liberal!! Daddy must be proud!! When logic, reason and truth fail you, may the force of emotion and sarcasm forever be strong with you!!
