SHE BROKE THE LAW! If you own a gun, know the rules and laws. warning shots are illegal because innocent people can be killed. She was STUPID but she does NOT deserve 20 years. She has already paid for her reckless behavior so set her free.

So warning shots are illegal, but if you stand your ground and shoot someone to death, that's fine? Just as Jon Stewart remarked on his show last week: if you are going to use a gun, make sure someone is killed, or you go to prison for having TRIED to kill someone.

I gave you a heart because we agree on most points, evidenced by the fact I signed the petition for her. But if she wants to own a gun she needs to get professional firearms training and learn the laws. I agree there are problems with SYG but there are some real problems with what she did, both morally and under the law. I will answer in parts as I can't explain myself in one post.

First, you are NOT allowed to fire warning shots for a good reason: innocent people ca get hurt, and the whole point of owning a gun for self-defense is to protect innocent life. No rational person with proper weapons training will ever point a gun at a person or an animal that he is not willing to destroy. 2. If a person grabs you by the hair, you may shoot him to get free. But if you bite him and he runs away, you may NOT shoot him now, because is is in the act of retreating, so you are no longer in danger. That is the law.

The fact that she not only RETURNED to the house once she was no longer in danger, but also brandished a gun and shot it renders her claim of self-defense (at that point) invalid. Her obligation at that point was to call the police if she still felt threatened. She was out of control emotionally at that point (probably not her fault) but this is why the law written as it is. We are not allowed to get revenge, we are only allowed to defend ourselves or another innocent person. With SYG,...

We are not allowed to get revenge, we are only allowed to defend ourselves or another innocent person. With SYG, I agree that the law has been twisted and bastardized. And the man who killed the young Martin kid had no right to follow him and provoke him. The real intent of that law is to allow me to shoot a guy who grabs my daughter by the hair, for example, without requiring her to try to negotiate her freedom in some other way first. I agree with THAT interpretation of the law. I also think this lady should be freed, immediately, and then she should get some firearms training or sell her gun.

We should all keep prying for this lady , and keep the ward out there

Praying for her release in a Jesus Name!

If her life was truly threatened, she should have shot him.. Not knowing the particulars about this story, its hard to form an educated opinion.. But if in fact he was trying to kill her, she should have shot him... BUT NOONE SHOULD SPEND 20 YEARS IN PRISON FOR WHAT SHE DID!! NOONE!!! OUR SYSTEM IS SO CORRUPT AND UNJUST SO MUCH OF THE TIME..ITS NO WONDER THIS POOR LADY GOT SENTENCED THE WAY SHE DID! WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO GET RID OF THE POLITICIANS AND LAWMAKERS, AND JUDGES WHO ABUSE THE...

WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO GET RID OF THE POLITICIANS AND LAWMAKERS, AND JUDGES WHO ABUSE THE LAWS, AND ABUSE THEIR AUTHORITY, AND ABUSE THE PEOPLE OF OUR COUNTRY, JUST LIKE GETTING RID OF BAD COPS WHO ABUSE PEOPLE, AND HIDE BEHIND THEIR BADGES!! ALSO, IF IN FACT, HER HUSBAND IS A WOMAN BEATER, AND HAS HURT THIS LADY ON PREVIOUS OCCASIONS, [AND ONLY IF HE REALLY IS A WOMAN BEATER], HIS SOORY ASS SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT BACK TO THE WOOD SHED, AND HE SHAOULD HAVE HIS SORRY ASS KICKED SO HE WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN TO ANOTHER WOMAN!! WOMEN BEATERS SHOULD BE BEAT!!! GOD BLESS THIS LADY!!!

She should have shot him ??!!! I guess you think she should of shot the kids too. Poor Lady my ass, she'll make someone on the inside a good bitch !!!

While I don't condone spousal abuse or child abuse in any way shape or form. I can't believe that she believed her life to be in enough immediate danger, that she had to go out to the car to retrieve her weapon when this was happening inside the house, where she could have just as easily grabbed a knife from the kitchen to defend herself and child. As for the dirtbag that abused her. What if anything happened to him? Was he charged with domestic violence or was he made to be the victim? I hope the truth will come out in her favor.

Please show mercy to this victim of domestic abuse. Twenty years?!! When others walk free for worse crimes? Unacceptable.

It's sad that you're so judgmental of someone that was in a state of fear and didn't want to take a life. Being a pastor and not understanding what love is, tells me a lot about your understanding of the Word of God. Yes, understanding the law is a must, but understanding a person in a state of shock takes compassion.

Paulette you have no idea what you are speaking about! I clearly stated that I wanted to see her pardon, but this petition is written wrong. Doesn't the bible tell us to do things in decency and order? Get a hold of your emotions and think. Being a Christian doesn't mean you don't think or disobey the procedures of the law of the land. You can't even admit that she was wrong then you can't help her...especially as a Christian!!!!

Winston Johnson

I do not know all the fox but if what I read is true I am praying that God will come through for her and she will receive her freedom

Bernard Mcdonald

It seems to me given the circumstances the husband perhaps should be receiving this sentence...he needs to be checked out on his background for any history of abuse!!

Did you, or anyone else who signed this petition actually read the Court documents? Do you even know part of the story, of what happened? She did not live at that house, it was her EX husbands house. She had ample time to leave or escape. But she decided to go to her car in the garage, another way she could have left if she chose to. She then re entered the house, hunted her ex husband down, and shot at his head, missing him. It was not a warning shot, she just sucked at shooting. Go read...

If I have not the opportunity to have access to the court documents I can only comment on what information is available and of course the content of those documents can be conjectural but we also need to know the background of the husband and from what we are aware however true or untrue there is some suggestion that he has form for domestic abuse...maybe her actions were the culmination of her anger in the way he treated her if it was not in self defence (Re court documents).

I need to know more about this case particularly about the husband...it maybe the husband does not come out of this smelling of roses! If you have some information on the husband to that effect to be totally impartial I would love to know!

Humm...does change things just a bit....honestly better to know all facts b4 prejudging but no one deserves to be abused under any circumstances. Giving him something to think twice about when the tables turn should not warranty a life sentence or anything near it.
