First of all This woman got into an argument with her husband after she went to his place. She went to her car, got the gun came back, and fired it. It was not in self defense. She had plenty of time to stay in the car, and go home without ever firing a shot. She didn't deserve 20 years in prison, but she was not defending her life.

If someone calls my wife nasty vile names and say gross stuff and I push the person away or hit them and then they pull out a gun and kill me.

WAS THAT SELF DEFENSE OR STAND YOUR GROUND ON THAT GROS PERSONS CASE?

Catboy - did you read the article or shoot your mouth off first?

Her husband had a history of domestic violence and she was frightened of him.

At lease this woman did not fire her gun into anybody and nobody was killed. Zimmie should have done the same in his effort of self defense (three last words with eye roll).

First, you should never shove, or push someone who is armed unless you are prepared to get shot dead. Stand you ground means if I feel threatened by another person, and I am armed I don't have to run away. I can pull my gun, and shoot the person threatening me. In a county where 49 states have open carry, or conceal carry you would be stupid to challenge another in anger.

So I cant defend myself unless I have a gun???????? I know many gun owners are wimpy little punks and need a gun or they would get ass kicked a lot.
Just wondering if you think only a gun carrying person can defend themselves,.

You want to defend yourself by shoving a guy with a gun? Is your insurance paid up? I think a person who has a gun really doesn't have to worry about being shoved by some nut with a death wish.

You missed the point didn't you.

How about I just shoot the guy with the gun with my gun....

But again since he has a gun I have to let him do whatever he wants huh?? So only he can defend himself and those without guns just have to take crap from these gun toting idiot murderers.

I notice most people who are big time gun nutters are weak wimpy punks...Not man or women enough to protect themselves without a gun..OH BIG TOUGH PERSON.

Only idiots think a question like that makes sense, or is related to anything anyone other than other idiots ever says.

Trayvon was home, doubled back to attack Zimmerman and was on top pummeling Zimmerman's head into a sidewalk, when shot for his drug induced viciousness. You don't have to double back across a housing development to defend yourself.

The person talking to him on the phone confirmed that he doubled back after arriving at his home. Blacks are committing violent rapes, murders and race crimes at a rate of 50 to 1 compared to others. This seems to suggest that Blacks have been let off easy for their crimes and the race hasn't learned how to live in a civilized country. Dreaming they are all out their defending themselves from seventy and eighty year old women and rape them in self defense is a stupid way of looking at things.
