Well, I guess it has been a week of private citizens and their guns in the news here in Southwest Florida. This story about the "handyman" suspected jewelry thief needs a second read. None of the media here including the TV stations made any mention of the fact that her life was not threatened and the "intruder" was invited into her home. She proclaims she would have shot him for sure in the last line of the story and suggested had she known he would not be arrested for his "potential" crime, she would have shot him. I think she would have served a long jail sentance if she would have carried that out as our Castle Doctrine law here only applies if the intruder was not invited or you "fear for your life". It appears neither of these situations apply here.
