  • I Looked Down At My Right Hand And I Saw That My Fingers Were Wrapped Tightly Around My Pistol.

    The Next Thing I Remember Is Saying Out Loud, " No Way Punk! Your Not Stealing My Pay Check And Tips."

    ~

    I Raised My Right Hand, Pointed My Pistol At The Man Running Away From Me With My Purse,

    And Squeezed The Trigger Of My Pistol 6 Times!

    ~

    When Asked By The Arraignment Judge,

    "Why Did You Shoot The Man 6 Times?

    ~

    The Woman Replied Under Oath,

    "Because, When I Pulled The Trigger Of My Pistol The 7th Time,

    It Only Went Click."

    ~

    The Woman Was Acquitted Of All Charges.

    And She Was Back At Work, At The Cafe, The Next Day!

  • Is this a joke? I am asking because if you shoot a person for stealing your purse, it is murder. No way to get around it. You just don't shoot someone for such a dumb reason/ In fact, you just DON'T shoot someone. Get it? So---is this a joke?

  • Now the shotting in the back is sticky because yes it is no longer a threat to the person when the criminal is going the other way and not shooting at the person or nothing.Personally I feel if people are going to steal from others they get what they deserve but legally yeah it would be sticky.

    I probably wouldnt have shot him 6 times, but instead I wouldve shot him twice. Once in each damn leg.

    Very true! I probably wouldn't want to fatally shoot him either...but I will be damned if someone tries to take away the right for a little old lady to be able to defend herself!
