    GEORGETOWN, Texas, May 13 (UPI) -- A Texas lawyer was charged with aggravated assault after she allegedly fired five shots from a handgun at a census canvasser.

    Carolyn Barnes, 53, of Leander, could face a more serious charge of aggravated assault on a public servant, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

    Barnes told Kathleen Gittel to leave after the temporary U.S. Census Bureau employee knocked on her door Saturday, Williamson County Sheriff's Sgt. John Foster said.

    "She was apparently not getting off of her property fast enough, and Ms. Barnes decided to shoot five rounds in her direction," Foster said.

    None of the shots struck Gittel, Foster said.

    Barnes has a history of losing her temper with public employees, the newspaper said. She was charged with assault on a public servant in January after she allegedly hit a sheriff's deputy at the Travis County Courthouse in Austin. In 2000, while fighting a traffic ticket, she wrote the Cedar Park Municipal Court clerk saying she would resist any attempt to arrest her "to the death."

    A year later, she said the letter was not a death threat: "I've been practicing law since 1984, and I haven't shot anybody yet, not even come close."
    Her documented history will gain her no favors.

    OK.
    Sounds like one angry lady, who might be a bit self-indulgent and narcisstic.

    Wonder if she fights that hard as an attorney in the court room.

    She apparently has anger issues and after the courts get done won't be able to look at a gun again

    So she's a bad shot. She's a lawyer, so I'm assuming she knows the difference between "shot at" and "shot"

    I find it hard to believe there's not more to this, but somehow I feel that a long sit court order down with a psychiatrist in a controlled facility is needed.

    Yep, the lawyer is your typical far out nutcase. She may be looking at federal charges on this one. Her license to practice law will be gone.

    Maybe she should get 12 lawyers to represent her. I hear they are cheaper by the dozen.

    It's okay, she is just mentally unstable.
    One of the most dangerous political philosophies afflicting America today is the belief that we canít allow anyone to suffer the natural consequences of their own stupidity.
