    Woman lures home invader to her gun...

    My brother-in-law works with this lady. She is the head of security for the Gulf Power plant near Pensacola, FL. After the guy broke into her house and demanded money, she said that her money was in her pickup truck. He followed her out to the truck for the money where she pulled her .40 cal from the center console and shot him dead.

    Being a former LEO and auxiliary trooper she should have had a gun in the house too, but I don't know the details. Sounds like she may have just been doing whatever she could to get him out of the house and away from her child.

    If she is charged, I will gladly donate to her legal fund. I say we give her a medal!

    I think it's a good shoot regardless of her getting him out of the house. He still had a weapon, he was naked, still committing a felony (armed robbery) and who knows what was going to happen if he did get the money.

    Police said Nussbaumer removed a handgun from the truck, then turned around and faced Harris. She shot Harris, who was standing a few feet from her, in the lower abdomen as he walked toward her, police said.
    She is pointing a gun at him and he is still advancing, obvious intent to do harm demonstrated by him. Good shoot.

    I'm 99.9% sure she won't face criminal charges, but that doesn't mean the bootom-feeder's family won't pursue a civil suit. And, I doubt any sane judge would award them a penny, but simply defending your self against a lawsuit is costly in both time and money. Attorney's fees, lost wages, etc...

    Don't know about FL. law but in Texas you can not be suited for a justified shooting.

    Wisconsin has the same provision stating that if you shoot someone, and it's ruled justified (ie no charges) then there is no civil liabilty on the part of the shooter, or the people who own the property where the shooting took place.

    Every state should have that happen without any law stating it. We need more common sense as a whole in this nation.

    I'm glad the homeowner and her child are safe. Hopefully she keeps a gun closer to hand in case something like this happens again.

    Same protection is part of FL law.

    You can be sued in TX. Recently brothers shot and killed bg breaking into family business. They were cleared of criminal charges but the family sued and won somewhere in the ballpark of $300,000. El Paso I believe.
