    KC Woman Ticketed for Shooting at Trespasser in Backyard... - August 2012

    -
    I just came across this story about a Kansas City woman being ticketed for shooting at a trespasser in her backyard. She explains (in the associated video) that he had lunged towards her and she fired a shot at him. This was the day after she chased off two intruders from in and around her home.

    She only found out about the ticket after a news station told her about it.

    A judge dropped the charges in a hearing two weeks later thanks largely, she says, to the coverage by the news station.

    IMO, she acted reasonably and had the gumption to carry her pistol, and stick to her guns.
    "Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)
