    CA: "Shotgun Joe's" advice worked!

    This time, not for criminals. (Seems like lately, all the shotgun news I've seen was criminals using 'em. Not this time)

    Lady in California awakened by her dog... Grabbed her shotgun, saw a thug outside... Fired a warning shot (into the ground, not into the air as "Shotgun Joe" would advise).

    Caused a few expletives to be uttered by the thugs a they ran off.

    Good for her!

    Story (maybe for mobile, sorry):
    California home invasion attempt stopped by woman with a shotgun - WFTX-TV Fort Myers/Naples, FL

    I'll bet that was quickly followed by a few expletives of her own, once she realized she lit off the shotgun indoors.

    So how many laws did she break by discharging the shot gun and was she in actual harms way? was it life or death? If she gets charged will Uncle Joe come out and pardon her?
    stay tuned

    I don't really care as long as the thugs crapped their britches and don't come back.

    Course she still failed.. She was suppose to wait till he comes to the door then fire thorough said door for maximum effect

    I still hope he did lose all control when she let that off though.. Just follow the trail to the his lair

    See...Joe IS Presidental material. He's already keeping us safe.

    Yay for the lady! And in her nightgown too!

    Did you ever stop to think it may not have been the shotgun, but the nightgown that sent the BG's fleeing?

    Lat's hope she didn't injure any endangered grub worms in her wanton willful discharge of her weapon of grass destruction!
    California Greenies will have her mowed for sure!
    You can bet her HOA will have a thing or three to say about this!

    Look we already paid for his dental implants and his hair restoration, maybe we could just stuff him and get a voice box from chatty Kathy doll! Couldn't be any worst then what we have now!
